Preview: 2012 SPx Football

Schedule Release Date: June 19, 2012
Box Configuration:  4 cards per pack/18 packs per box
SRP: $120/box

Box Break:
4 Autograph or Memorabilia cards
2 SPx Finite Rookie cards
3 SPx Shadow Slot acetate cards
1 SPx Shadow Box card per case (1:14 boxes)

My Thoughts:
SPx football has always been a solid product from Upper Deck and this year is no different. This year the set is made up of a 205 card checklist and is broken down in to Retired Stars (50 cards), SPx Rookie Auto Jersey cards (#/399) (35 cards), SPx Rookies (#/750) (60 cards) and SPx Rookie Signatures (#/225) (60 cards). There are also a couple of different inserts including Winning Big Materials (#/199), SPx Shadow Box, SPx Shadow Slots, Super Script and SPx Finite Rookies (#/499, 299 or 99 plus a 1/1 Spectrum version).

A new addition to the product is the ability to build your own Shadow Box cards by changing out the acetate slot cards. Each box will include 3 slot cards and the Shadow Box cards are found at 1 per case. The slot cards will have different levels of rarity including autographed versions. The Shadow Box cards have always been popular so the ability to build your own should add to this popularity, I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing custom versions where people create cards showing the player in their pro uniform.
