2009 Releases- Random Thoughts

My local 7-11 restocked it's cards. Woo hoo!! I'm such a sucker for picking up a pack of whatever's there whenever I have to make a legitimate purchase. I need to listen to Gellman's advice though.

This is what ran through my head in the 6 seconds befor grabbing a pack of: UD Goudey, UD Spectrum, and UD Lineage Basketball.

Spectrum is what it is, no sense griping about it anymore. At least we don't have to deal with metal hair band sticker autos from guitarists who apparently crawled out from under the rock of obscurity to help produce last year's set. I did find it confusing to see blue and purple cards neither with serial numbering. How are you supposed to know which one is the parallel. UD still doesn't print insert odds on their packs.

Goudey- No Thanks. This product has run its course as the montage of colors is ugly and the artwork is very subpar at best.

Lineage- Other than the (2) Michael Jordan inserts in the pack, forget it. I have mentioned before that UD doesn't have a long enough history to rely on retro and flash backed themed product. The base cards are from the dreadful 93-94 season I believe. Awful.

In general, keep 'em. Next !?!
