1st Impressions: 2008 Upper Deck Update

Upper Deck will finish off their flagship baseball card set with a 200-card Update set.

So what, you say. OK, here's the cool part: UD is going old school by issuing it exclusively as a factory set. In other words, its an update set the way an update set should be.

But wait, there's more! Each set will be packaged in a custom-fit box big enough to fit the whole 1000-card set.

Upper Deck Baseball is truly "The Collector's Choice."

Street Date: November 4th.

So what's the catch/gimmick? It's 2008 - there has to be a catch. Things aren't ever this simple anymore.

Fantastic idea Upper Deck! I actually thought of making a custom box when I was building my 2006 UD 1250-card set.

The only downside is master set builders. If UD made a custom box for master set builders, I could quit buying pages and binders!

I applaud the move by Upper Deck. And to think, conventional wisdom has it that Topps is the company that caters to set builders. Great move Upper Deck!!
