    Funny, cause when I got out of it for the first time, I was getting frustrated with Upper Deck putting out too many sets - thus diluting the value pool in my eyes- and worried about this very thing happening. I don't know how any cards hold their value anymore. I did like the looks of the first couple years of UD as well.

    Upper Deck still makes incredible products. There exquisite 2011 football with the gold autographs is one of the nicer sets I have seen all year. Someone hit the nail on the head. Money will get them back in, but they probably are fine without the license for now

    I miss UD for three reasons:
    (1) They did high end the best i.e. Exquisite.
    (2) SP Authentic with pro uniforms were GORGEOUS rookie autos.
    (3) They also do low end great too, almost as good at Topps does. Topps Chrome being, to me, the pinnacle of low end product: fun to open, lots of rookies, lots of refractors, autos, and they actually hold value reasonably well (refs, autos, elite base rookies).

    Panini just plain sucks to me, period. Too many junk sets with junk designs and the same player pictures in all of them. Contenders and National Treasures are slipping. They do nothing to improve their designs year to year. They keep making money somehow though, so "why bother?" is likely their attitude.

    I'm pretty sure Upper Deck and every card company would love to have a license of the most popular sport in America right now

    agree with everything here. I also didn't know that UD did the SP stuff. What does SP stand for? ( I am just getting back into the hobby so no making fun!)

    You realize Topps and Panini both are only allowed 14 releases due to NFL licensing rules, and they both max out their limit every year? Also, when UD was releasing NFL products, they maxed out as well? So, without eliminating any current manufacturer, UD would only create more sets? Also, you may not recall, but UD was the originator of the kick in the groin picture.

    A timeless question. UD never officially announced what SP stood for, ever since its initial release in 1993. Most people assumed it was for Short Print, as that was the common term associated with "SP" but UD never stated thats what it meant when asked about it.
