Upper Deck announced that this years 09/10 UD Exquisite Basketball will be the last set in the series. In only a short period of time (03/04 First Issue) Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball has made a huge impact on the hobby world. Its sad to see such a great set that was highly anticipated by basketball collectors each season.
It will be interesting to see what premium sets that Panini decides to roll out this year for basketball. The high end product does have a place in the market both at the box level and the single card market so I anticipate that they will take advantage of this. Either way it will be tough for them to match Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball's reign as the high-end product of choice for basketball fans.
