User Reviews

  1. The odds for base autographs have increased from 1:38 to 1:67. Not too impressed with that, but we’ll see how the product is. Maybe my rating is a little harsh.

  2. Why are there redemption rookie cards when this product is to be released “after” UD Series One which will have live rookie cards in packs? Just print the RCs and put them in packs and save us the aggravation of redeeming and waiting.
