Well, got a suprising call from a guy at UD today, to sort out some of my problems. I had redeemed a card for an 04-05 dual hardwood auto of Jason Richardson and Fred Jones, which I never got. I got junk in return for it, so wasnt happy. Today, I got these choices as replacement, all from 04-05 Ud Hardcourt dual autos.

Carmelo Anthony / Andre Miller
Antawn Jamison / Gilbert Arenas
Amare Stoudamire / Shawn Marion
Chauncey Billups / Richard Hamilton

It was a tough choice. The 2 I liked Most, were Melo / Andre and Marion / Amare. But then I thought about how good the Pistons were. I first eliminated the Wizards dual, there good players, just on an OK team. Well, I ended up going with the Melo. I think Amare / Marion was closest next. I chose it because I already have a Hamilton auto, and an Amare auto. Whats your thoughts on what I should have taken?

I am a Pistons fan, so I would have taken the Billups/Hamilton. That's just an awesome card of perhaps the best backcourt duo in the NBA.

But beyond that, the best option as far as two quality players is the Amare/Marion. 'Melo is probably the best player, hobby-wise, of the bunch. But Andre Miller is a turd.

True, true. I almost took the Amare / Marion as well. If I didnt have an Auto of Amare already, and tons of game used of Marion, that would have been my choice. Ive followed Carmelo quite awhile now, hes my top 5 for collecting, and thats my first auto of him. The Billups / Hamilton was nice, but I think it only books 40-50.

Well, no matter what, you ended up doing better than you had originally.

True, but the only downfall is, J Rich is my favorite player in the NBA. But the Melo, should book alot I would guess. I prolly wont be trading it, but if I did, im sure it would be worth something.

Anyone know the Book of the Amare dual or the Carmelo dual? My tuff stuff has Amare at 80, and Melo has none cuz its SP.

I have the Amare/Marion dual, if it is the one #/100. Bv is only $40, but it sells very well

Im not sure if they are numbered or not. I figured both would sell well. It was a tough choice between these. But Melo is a beast, and I had to take it. If your trading that dual of yours, Id love to get it btw.

mine is for trade, but not at bv. I would need something that sells for around 30-40

If the Melo is an SP, then he made the right choice, obviously.

Good Choice, I may have gone with the Pistons just because I have the Melo already.

Ya, the Pistons was definitely nice. I was suprised I was offered so much. Im figuring, its because they didnt replace about 400 bv in other cards, so I guess it was fair. I joked with the guy and asked if he had a Bron or a Stockton dual from that set, lol. Those would have been really nice.

Well, I don't think you could go wrong with any of those duals. Those are some pretty sweet choices. They're all good cards.

Just my 2c - I like the Amare / Marion.

Ya, I was certainly suprised with the items I was offered. But they didnt replace alot of my stuff, so I guess they felt bad?

Well, I never would have guessed. But after coming bad from buying a few packs (horrible btw), fed ex was pulling out of my driveway. He stopped and got out and gave me a package. I saw it was from UD, but didnt think it would be here so quick, would it? Well it was!! In only 2 days I recieve it, and boy is it a beauty. Kinda dinged corners, but nonetheless, I love it!
