IF this is indeed true, doesn't really sound like free enterprise to me.
Upper Deck is indeed doing this. As someone who is coming over to the non-sport side from the sports side, Upper Deck is one of the worst companies out there.

I'm assuming UD must have some kind of arrangement where the terms of use (if there is one) has some limitation over these shops as mini franchises or something of that nature. Regardless, that's pretty ridiculous, why does UD care once the product is sold anyway what happens to it? I mean it's not like they lose money on that.

I believe it is a distribution thing. To be one of their "Diamond Dealers" you have to follow their rules on who and when you sell to people. It's a way, in their mind, to protect hobby stores from online sellers.

I just checked FedEx and it says my two boxes are on the truck for shipment. Are we allowed to post our hits from boxes today or no?

This makes sense... if you agree to a certain terms then there's not a whole lot you can do.

I ordered some stragglers from a competitor of BO so I won't mention their name, but I've not gotten any sort of shipping confirmation, probably won't see those until next week-ish.

Awesome pull on the Lincoln! Seems like most people getting cases are guaranteed to pull him. Might be that the hype was a bit too much for his auto... at least to this point.

I'm beginning to think a "Blue Hoodie" with a blue swatch is the variant. The one I pulled had the brown textured swatch too and I think one of the ither breaks had a brown swatch too.
I guess we'll know for sure when all of the breaks hit tomorrow.

People called me stupid, but I've been saying that I believe there are no real short printed autos compared to others. I know Lincoln will command the most money but I think over $200 might be a stretch. Outside of this show, he isn't really a household name. I know in the Game of Thrones set, Dinklage was pulling $200-300 but he was very short printed compared to the other characters and had won a Golden Globe among other major awards.

The real chase I think will be on the costume cards, lots of different colors and variants. Plus there are double the amount of costume cards as there are autographs.

I honestly spent more money on wardrobes in S1 than I did on autos. My Reedus autos were actually pretty good... only about $150 a piece... but I still hope to pull Lincoln instead of having to buy him.

u think the costume cards will get $200? .. only 1 SP - dale - was announced. and it's dale; not like Avengers Assemble samuel l jackson or scarlett johanson. dont think other costume cards will soar to 200 level

1 lincoln sold for 200, the next should be higher as all saw it go to a collector.

Seems to me that the "blue" in the andrea hooded sweatshirt is a variant. The brown may be the inner lining?
