As Dropped Third Strike says: They got some brass ones

Blowout forums user bluecloud2 has a four-box break of 2010  2009 Ultimate on the forum. The pictures are just of the hits, but it is interesting to see the cards.

Link here for the thread.

Now, technically I'm not sure if these are 2010 cards. They were released after the New Year, though, and I thought there was supposed to be a 2009 release (unless there was and I missed it). Some of the terms of licensing agreement are shady. So, if it says 2009, but released after Jan. 1, UD might not have any issues.

Either way, there are photos of a new product.

It's interesting to note there are no team names on the cards, just cities. There are no jersey logos to be seen as a whole. But you can see partial jersey pieces such as the Vlad patch card.

The only discernible logos that can be seen on the card are on the players' helmets.

If this is what we can expect from UD, I actually don't have a product. I don't notice what is missing from the card. These cards are very solid.

We'll see where we go from here.

  2. Yuck. Let's see what the 2010 cards look like, and how many products they can get out before the lawyers swoop in.

  3. This is 2009 Ultimate, but released after the new year, so I guess UD's MLB license is gone. On the forum thread, the guy says "It says right on the pack 'not authorized by MLB.'"

    Pete is right that UD has balls - they don't do much to block out the logos at all...
