Default Why is 2014 SP Game Used Golf "poop" as some would say?

I would like to read other members opinions as to why they really don't care for this years SP Game Used golf. I myself thought it was really nice. The sticker autos don't bother me that much. The letter marks were a cool idea since the players don't have there names on their shirts. Memorabilia has some really nice pieces. Obviously the base memorabilia is drab but that's like that with all products. Just wondering why there is so much dislike?

See the funny thing is, is that you go to a golf tournament and ask them to sign they probably won't! So I'm fine with these stickers as long as they're authentic!

But sp authentic doesn't offer anything like the memorabilia pieces in game used. Also all you get is 3 hits in sp authentic if I remember correctly! You're getting 6 hits and sometimes 7 with game used! I just think stickers is a weak arguement. Not to mention the inked drivers and letter marks are not stickers and there are plenty of rory, tiger, and other big names in those subsets!

I have opened a bunch of this the last 2 years...

Love it.. one of my favorite products in the whole hobby..

I would buy SPGU over SPA all day...

I have opened 20 cases of both combined over last 2 years

SPA is 1 nice hit per case.

SPGU has the stickers but so much more value...

Even at $100 compared to $150 a box

event worn= lol

Also, the fact that anyone can defend sticker auto's is very weak. It's one thing if a person can't afford it, but to have the choice and say that stickers are fine or preferred.. That is even weaker. For anyone to say that spgu has "so much more value" over spa is somewhat laughable. lol

You may think its laughable, but I still agree with others that spgu has more value regardless if it has sticker autos.

People like different things..

I prefer on card...

But if I had to pick a case.. I would choose SPGU

Each product has 1 case hit...

After the case hit the value is over whelming in favor of SPGU

I've done two cases of each product and I would also have to say that SPGU is far better than SPA. The cards you can pull are just way nicer and more amazing. Both of my SPGU cases had monster case cards. SPA was only ok. One case was a Michelle Wie case. That was nothing special.

I actually like the look of this release. Yeah, stickers are a shame, and on card is nicer, but I think there are some lovely cards in the release. The problem I see is that virtually everybody on here talks about cards in terms of what they can get out of them and how much they might make if they pull a big card. Does anybody ever buy anything because they like it?, even if the return is a bit less than another similar release, I wonder!!?

I saw a case break of the authentic golf release, and I didn't see a single card I really liked, despite on card autos. Saw loads I liked from the case breaks have seen of this.

Just buy what you like...

You get more bang for your buck with GU. What i dont understand is why you have no names with Low numbered Letter Autos and Inked Drivers? The Rookie autos all suck except for Wie and Rory. Both Products you need to hit Stars. Or you end up with low numbered cards of worthless scrubs. Eight Boxes one big hit in GU. Same for SPA one Wei and the rest was garbage of $25 cards or lower. For some reason the two cases of Upper deck Broken on the forum have sucked badly?

I'm sure it has been mentioned but I don't feel like reading through all the responses...

It's called Sp GAME USED

Game used being the key. Sp authentic doesn't have tags logos buttons ect ect. The sticker argument is so old and worn out. Give it a rest

I am pretty sure a lot of the tags and shirts aren't really game used.

You know if you can only go by what the back of the card says, a Tiger inked fabrics /10 I pulled stated the shirt was used in a PGA Tournament! To me that is 100% better than all the EXQUISITE football patches that the players probably never touched or just put over their heads for a second!

No. Everything goes on ebay as fast as possible.

Not really sure who's even buying since everyone is selling.
Great hobby.
