Default FYI Upper Deck just sent this announcementon 09/10 OPC Metal HK

FYI Upper Deck just sent this announcement out yesterday…


In an attempt to relieve some of the congestion in the upcoming NHL release calendar, we have decided to cancel the release of 09-10 OPC Metal NHL. However, because the OPC brand has such a large and very loyal following, we have decided to take the base OPC cards that were to be a part of the OPC Metal product and create a 09-10 OPC Update factory set. This set will contain the complete 200 cards that finish the set (cards 601-800), and each set will also include a small number of random foil parallel cards of the update set as well.


Fact sheets will be sent out shortly, which will detail price and configuration of the new product. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, however we feel that this is the prudent move as we look ahead into the next few months. The sets will be allocated. It is our intention to get this update set out by the end of April.



More details to follow……

In other words...

upper deck is hurting for money right now and wants to save money on packaging by combining products into fewer packages.

You can't fool all of us ud.

Exactly what I was thinking. "In an attempt to relieve some of the congestion in the upcoming NHL release calendar" What the hell does that mean? YOU (UD) set the release calendar yourselves and fell months behind, you morons!
