The Sickest Patch Set I Have Ever Seen! Check These Out!
Wow, I wish I had even a quarter of the this set.......just about the best I have ever seen.
I actually think the price isn't far off.......what do you think about this set?

I like the set and it was great before patch fakers got their hands on it but I still think one of the greatest game used patch sets are the 2005 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Jumbo Patch cards.
The sequel in 2009 wasn't as good but sequels rarely are.

Patches are one are where I think that Upper Deck really owned over Topps

...wow. I just got into collecting cards about a year ago. I thought patches like these in baseball were non-existant. If I pulled a patch half as good as these I'd feel like it ought to be a 1/1. I really wish Topps didn't rule baseball. I love football so much more because there's more patches, less expensive, more hits, and all and all, in my opinion, better looking cards. In baseball, topps could put out a set of autos all on dummy cards and people would still buy them. I think if panini was as big of a presence in baseball as they are football these type of patches would be pulled all the time.

I love upper deck. Wish sweet spot was still around for baseball. One of my favorite products.

Topps probably sold all the patches off their jerseys to UD, haha. In reality, Topps - being as conservative as they are - just doesn't use many patches so they don't have to acquire many GU items. Whereas UD must have spent 10X more on acquiring jerseys to keep up with the amount and quality of patch cards offered.
On a side note, I have a Todd Helton UD Super Patch Logos incoming....it looks awesome, can't wait to get it in hand.

Agree I liked upper deck way better when it came to patches. Wish UD was still in the game.I am an avid Atlanta Braves Auto collector. I am in the process of updating all my autos to a spreadsheet and organizing them. I am always looking for Atlanta Braves RCs Autos and also nice veteran autos.
