Is the Upper Deck O-Pee-Chee Concept Dead?

This is ironic considering that I bought and ripped a box of 2009 UDOPC Baseball this afternoon; (Video break to come) but according to a documents revealed by Sports Collector's Daily, Topps and Upper Deck have come to an agreement, of sorts, regarding UD's use of the vintage O-Pee-Chee designs.
"Upper Deck will be able to sell its existing inventory of 2009 Series One and Two Baseball, 2009 OPC and 2008-09 OPC hockey, but the west coast card maker will have to stop within four weeks and won't be able to promote the cards at the heart of the dispute."
So look for the flood of 2009 UDOPC Baseball soon.

Huh... wonder how long before they're discounted? I realize they're already fairly inexpensive...

I forgot to look for 'em at my shop today, I had wanted to grab a pack. Oh well.

Just as I was sort of starting to like the set...

Oh well, UD can just go back to doing a Vintage set or a Fleer Tradition set next year.
