2009 UDx is here, lacking love

2009 Upper deck x has hit the stores, and its laking respect. For around 35 bucks you can get a hobby box, and for young collectors on a budget,this is a good product. But the reality is that many collectors dont want to waist there money buying a product that has barley changed appearance since last year, and has an X on it. Really, who thought of this. Obviously its not going to go over well with collectors to have a card with an X on it.

This product is not absoutly horrible, as the somewhat flashy design could appeal to kids and collectors. Also a plus is the die-cuts and UDXpotential inserts falling 1 each in every pack. As you can see from the ebay auctions, these cards arent going for much, which means the people the are choosing to collect 09 UDx should be happy. Every hobby box contains one jersey card, and 3 20th anniversary cards.

 Longoria 09 UDx There is some diference but the design is pretty much similar. There is also two more UDXpotential subsets in the set this year as UDXpotential 5 and 6 were added. By the way doesnt Xpotential sound like they dont have any potential? Just thought of that.

  1. I like the product and will mostly likely purchase a box or two. I actually would rather not have either a die-cut or xponential “insert” to make it easier to collate the set, but whatever. The one-relic-per-box is a nice touch, and one auto/printing plate per case will actually give them a little bit of value, too.

  2. I plan on buying a hobby box. It will be my first hobby box of any product. i like the set and since it is a smaller one it is one I plan on hopefully completing.
