i know that Leaf talked about an upcoming Golf product. not sure if the PGA/LPGA has a set amount of licenses. UD hinted at some golf in their muli-sport products in the future.

A- I among many others would love to see a new golf product, but at the same time I would not like to see one becasue it would be just a matter of time before UD (or leaf for that matter) Floods the market with items again.

B- UD rode the Tiger craze for all it was worth, who thought UD would be able to put out 4-5 golf products a year and evey one of them was a huge success at that (renditions was amazing fun with the case box topper added to it). The golf craze had died down and UD knows this, with the company on sketchy ground now, where would the money come from to produce a product for golf fans which wouldnt suck? They left so suddenly but on such a high note, since then fans have done nothing but beg for more and they still don't even entertain the idea...somethings fishy about that one.

At the time, I made tons of money from golf releases because it was stupid to not sell and break more to make more money. I think a golf product would be nice again, but the initial amazing sales due to everyone being starved for it for so many years, will do nothing but make the company's greedy and you will see either too many releases by UD, or other companies trying to get in on the wave and ruin the market.

Just my thoughts

I agree... High end golf stuff is some of the rarest stuff in the hobby...

So many major winners can be bought for 10-20 dollars

and nicklaus and palmer can be had for less than 200...

IMO if no new golf ever comes out a lot of this stuff will go up in value...

But i still think they should make 1-2 products a year...

if press pass can get all the nascar guys to sign UD could get golfers to sign

lots of really good young player... that im sure would be thrilled to be on a golf card

I would love to see something new soon, but I think UD is so sold on doing multi-sport items with golf guys rather than put the effort into making a new golf product. Makes no sense, but I guess we get what we get

I used to make a mess of money on UD Golf ...
I remember breaking 7 cases of 2004 SP Signature and 4 cases of 2005 SP Signature and it was a no miss product ....
Being a golf fan I can think of alot of players that I bet alot of people would love to have cards/autos/relics of ...
I know its a limited audience but so is Nascar , Wrestling, MMA & Soccer ....

Now I know many people who don't really follow golf won't know all these guys and ladies but just off the top of my head here's some names that have either none or only 1 year of autos & relics --

PGA---
Phil Mickelson
Vijay Singh
Jim Furyk
Camillo Villegas
Bubba Watson
Lee Westwood
Ian Poulter
Dustin Johnson
Nick Watney
Rickie Fowler
Johnatthan Vegas
Boo Weekley
Martin Kaymer
Grahame McDowell
Ernie Els
Steve Stricker
Charl Schwartzel
Ryan Moore
Rory McIlroy

LPGA---
Michelle Wie
Paula Creamer
Morgan Pressel
Stacy Lewis
Yani Tseng
Amanda Blumenhurst
Vickey Hurst
Ai Miyazato
Brittany Lincicome
Momoko Ueda
Ne Yeon Choi
Jiyan Shin
Anna Nordquist

Now to a golf nut like me that's an impressive list of new signers & players from the last 2005 UD release that was made ....
Many people used to say you if you did'nt pull a Tiger auto or relic you could'nt make money but look at that list of guys/ladies who would be new to the products ....
Come on UD let's get it done ....

People would love Fowler and McIlroy. And you didn't even mention Anthony Kim.

if i remember correctly they have to go each player indivaually to sign contracts for the rights to make cards , they is no union like in other sports that helps in the legal stuff of card making

Why do you think that UD just got all of the Masters worn clothing from Tiger??

I bet we see an exquisite golf type product very soon.

Amazing...

there are many more players from those era's they could find also..

they could do flag cards from majors.. cut autos.. give away tickets to majors.... meet a player.. sand from st andrew or pebble beach.. tickets from majors... sketch cards .. tons of artists do stuff of famous courses..

sometimes i think i should kjnock on UD's door and just tell them im going to producr a product for them

my small golf collection... thinking about adding to it...

IMO

they sell the stuff for 20k a shirt.... Not sure they cut it up.. they could make 1000 cards out of all that... how many cards has tiger had in the last few years? not a lot

But my main point is if it is that easy for UD to get the most famous golfers full wardrobe for the biggest tournament.. they could get anyone else also

make a product
