Topps has Five-Star, Panini has National Treasures, and the last to be released is Upper Deck’s 2011 Exquisite football. Exquisite has always been highly regarded amongst collectors, and still maintains that high regard despite the NCAA license as evidenced by last year’s successful product.
This year shouldn’t be any different. With a strong rookie class and Exquisite’s great rookie autographed patches, it should be a hit once again this year. Bringing some of the greatest football players of all time as well as some future great players, Exquisite is a product worth the price of admission.
And I’ve had good experience in the past too.
At 6 cards per box, this product has always been about quality instead of quantity. 5 of the cards are autographs though, and collectors love that. Besides your standard rookie patch autographs, UD Black will make a return in this product as well as some very cool autographs that look almost 3-dimensional.
You can expect the product to be in the $400 range when it releases, with an official date coming soon.
