Now I did terrible on previewing for the August sports card releases. I blame that of course on my wedding and honeymoon. Grad school isn’t as big of a hurdle as family coming into town and being in a few foreign countries without decent internet access. So as always, here is a list of products coming out this September including my rating of excitement.
2012 Topps Baseball Minor League Heritage – September 12, 2012 – $68 – 6/10
A product I still personally don’t care about makes a return featuring some of the best prospects in the game that are currently down on the farm getting ready for their call ups. Full preview coming soon.
2012 Topps Triple Threads Baseball – September 19, 2012 – $200 – 7/10
Never really been a huge fan of the product and have been advocating a complete change over or removal of the product, but it’s coming out again for another season. Some nice cards to be had though, it’s just a matter of preference. Full preview coming soon.
2011-12 Upper Deck Fleer Retro Basketball – September 6, 2012 – $300 – 7/10
I’m not sure what to expect in this product from Upper Deck, but from what I’ve seen it’s a lot of old Fleer designs with rookies and legends of the game in their college uniforms.
2012-13 Panini Prestige Basketball – September 14, 2012 – $96 – 7/10
Getting into more of the full season of NBA products from Panini with their second release of the season, before the season even starts! Full preview coming soon.
2012 Panini Momentum Football – September 12, 2012 – $200 – 8/10
This looks like a great rookie product from Panini which features some sweet rookies, some sweet autographs, and some sweet memorabilia cards. A whole lot of hits in this product.

More from the hottest rookie class in years with another Panini debut in their football brands. Full preview coming soon.
2012 Topps Platinum Football – September 12, 2012 – $110 – 8/10
Not a bad looking product from Topps with 3 autographs per box and a ton of refractors, especially with this awesome rookie class. But Topps and foilboard? OHMAHGERD! Full preview coming soon.
2012 Upper Deck University of Alabama Football – September 25, 2012 – $46 – 6/10
Roll Tide. Upper Deck comes out with another college football team themed product after last year’s products. I wasn’t a fan then, not really a fan now. Full preview coming soon.
2011-12 Upper Deck The Cup Hockey – September 11, 2012 – $400 – 9/10
One of the best all around products of the year returns again as the final product of the 2011-12 hockey season from Upper Deck. Will it live up to it’s usual hype? Probably. Full preview coming soon.
