User Reviews

  1. WHAT??? How could there be a 2022-23 UD product when the current season is not even over. Or is this reverse Panini where they delay football and basketball products to release late in the year or after the season has expired.

  2. I do like the Young Guns design and the look of the base set. However, I do hope UD gets back on track with their overall release dates of all products.

  3. Looks pretty good. I’m still worried that UD will make the cut-off date shortened on purpose to release another “extended series.” The young gun design is great, the base card design finally looks professional.
