2015 UD Inscriptions – Its Topps Chrome Without The Meaningless Base Cards

Over the last year or so, I’ve become very picky when it comes to opening boxes.  There are certain products I like, but I have to enjoy them from a distance because I don’t want the excess base cards that come along with it.  Let me get one thing clear.  I DON’T like base cards.  They’re meaningless, take up space, and will never be worth anything because they made so many.  The money that is put into printing base cards should be used for something else.  Late last year, I cleaned up my room by throwing away boxes of base cards that have been building up over time.  If I can’t sell it, use it as a contest, or display it on my shelf, that product really isn’t for me.  The only exception to this new rule of mine is if I’m attending the National.  There I will bend the rule a little in order to participate in the promo programs.

One of those products I’ve been watching from a distance is Topps Chrome.  Especially the football version.  Baseball Topps Chrome shouldn’t even exist, and doesn’t carry the impact football does.  I never bought a box of Topps Chrome Football because of all the pointless base.  It looks great, but it just comes with too much stuff I don’t need.

Next month Upper Deck will introduce a new pre-draft product called 2015 Upper Deck Inscriptions.  Each box will have (4) autographs and NO base cards.  Look for a lot of inscriptions with this product.  Three of the cards are considered Silver level autographs, and the fourth is the parallel.  Parallels include Red #’ed/149, Black #’ed/25, and Gold #’ed/10.  To me, this product looks like Topps Chrome but without all the base.  Its actually more of a competitor to Leaf Metal Draft, but it has college logos.  I’m sorry to say that this is probably one of the last CLC licensed products Upper Deck will issue.  Panini is slowly taking over college stuff, in addition to everything else.

Based on what we’ve seen so far, 2015 Upper Deck Inscriptions looks pretty darn good.  Like I said before, I’m picky on what and how often I open products.  There is such little innovation nowadays, product similarity is at and all time high.  This is suppose to be out on March 11, so I might buy a box online or wait until I go to a show near the end of next month.  The box price is around $130.00.
