Looks like SP Authentic will be a loaded product and they'll most likely throw the Ultimate stuff into The Cup. Makes sense. Stuff that would have been difficult to move will now be sold. It's just like in 2004/05 when there was no hockey. The products that came out were absolute garbage as far as RC's went, BUT as far as inserts, etc., there was nothing more loaded than boxes of UD and UD Ultimate. That stuff was cray-cray."I like chicken wings"

Yikes... If they are releasing The Cup at the same pricepoint with about the same kind of distribution, it's gonna be terrible. I can understand that they are probably seeing a golden opportunity where Panini has thrown in the towel, but they will have to improve in product quality and value BIG TIME.

And to add to this post, I am very happy to see that SPA will indeed be released! My personal favourite.

Just to clarify, the 12-13 artifacts rookie redemptions will be produced and redeemable next season, right?
