I don't know what it is about these cards, or most Upper Deck releases around this period, but I just find them so boring and uninteresting. Still would be happy to have the set but they are just not exciting.. but I am anxious to see what Upper Deck has in store next. I think it's been about 4 years since they made a baseball product and I know it's a little bit more difficult for them due to not being licensed and terms that were set under their Topps lawsuit against them in... 2010 maybe? Don't know what the specifics are I just believe I heard that some terms make them harder to get around some of the problems around making unlicensed cards.
