2011-12 Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball

It's back! Ok, sure, it's still with the college uniforms. Nothing can be done about that. But Exquisite is the godfather of modern day basketball card sets. You had 03-04 with LeBron, 07-08 with Durant. Over the years this set has produced some of the most sought after basketball cards on the market. Exquisite returns in 11-12, with an added surprise, one Michael Jordan autograph per case. Also per case you'll get another 'graph of either Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, LeBron, or Bill Russell. That comes straight from the horses mouth.
Scheduled release date is October 16, 2012. 1 pack per box with 5 total autographs per box. Look for a huge price tag per box/case because of the 1 per case Jordan autographs. The checklist should be eerily similar to the Fleer Retro set that came out just one month prior. Regardless of the NCAA uniforms, this set will be hot. Who knows what will happen on the secondary market. Fleer Retro boxes exploded upward to $500 a box (pre sale was $200).  Exquisite could be too high a gamble, but the basketball card market is strong worldwide and sometimes people underestimate that many of these cards go overseas. Baseball and especially Football cards are primarily only collected in the United States. Basketball is a global game with a huge following in many different countries.
