I really dont know now
After checking out the pics posted on this site for 12/13 UD 1, UD Black Diamond and Panini I am now leaning towards the Panini. The overall look and content seems to me to be the best.
Post what you guys/gals would buy. A : UD1 B : Black Diamond C : Panini
Help sway me in my purchase.Check out my trade thread here: Hidden Content

Reason: I want "hits". Memoribilia and Autos are what I chase. Young Guns are great, quad rookie gems are great, but neither are auto'd or game used. I feel you get more bang for your buck in a box of Certified.If you can't be bothered listing your cards on Ebay, don't want to pay the high fees, deal with the lousy buyers, then sell your cards to me.

C: Panini. UD S1 looks really bad & I heard that its going to be the same price as it usually is. Black Diamond is much the same as it is every year except this years rookies are not even close to worth the price tag

Stay away from Series 1 and Black Diamond.
There are some chase hits in them, but by and large they are both Rookie themed products and with a weak rookie class of only last years late rookies, they will not be able to compete with Certified which is mostly mem and auto themed.Looking for Patrick Roy, PK Subban, Carey Price, SPX SHADOWBOXES (ANY YEAR), Black Diamond Cup rings (Any year)

series 1..nothing to chase
black diamond..never holds value..same old design year after year..no autos..no fun
panini- autos, memorabillia, low cost..doesn't hold as much value as UD but who cares..as long as the cards look great and they usually do,.Hidden Content
I collect: Adam Larsson, Mason Raymond and Matt Duchene

If you edit your thread, you can put in a poll instead.
Also, I would lean C, given those options. Lately though, I've not been impressed with UD.

UD1 all the way, gonna be loaded up. Always good resale. If you need another wack of 2$ autos, jersey cards and stickers for 10 packs and $100+ then Certified is your best bet. Black Diamond is Black Diamond.

C. Certified has that 90s foil look to it. Really like it.

In two years time when you go to sell your double and triple diamonds, you wont be able to give them away, yet the corresponding Panini Serial numbered parallel will at least sell.
2000-01 was the last good year for Black Diamond. It's been garbage ever since.

Best box you get a Krieder or Schwartz young gun that you'll be lucky to sell for $30 after a week of release and $20 after a month. Or you could get lucky with a signature sensation case hit that will get you $20 unless you're extremely lucky and get a Crosby or Gretzky. UD1 is a rookie based set that revolves around Young Guns rookies and with the lockout and no big names UD1 is going to be sitting on shelves at half price in a couple of months because nobody will want it.
