    Pennants are what I was referring to.

    And yes, I've had the same experience around town. No stores know anything about the cards. Even the local card store owner was shocked that no one was buying them. They've done no advertising whatsoever. Most people simply don't know they exist.

    Re: 2012 Upper Deck Alabama trading cards

    I just ordered two blaster boxes and one regular box. Looking forward to seeing what I get.

    Does anyone know how many of these were printed? Hopefully not many

    I've noticed the exact same thing.

    On the "local card store owner" thing - are you saying that a local specialty shop has/had them in stock? Also, where's "local" for you?
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    I live in Hoover, AL. Theres a card shop called CJ's in Vestavia. They are selling boxes for $46 and the guy working there said no one was really buying them yet.

    There is a parallel set of the first 100 cards, and there are 50 of each in total. That means 5,000. If they are 1 per box, then there should be about 5,000 boxes. The blaster boxes miht throw things off, but that should only be a fraction of the market.

    If there are 5k boxes, then there are like 250 cases out there. Not many given how many card stores are out there, but this is a nitch product. I expect a sellout for Christmas. That is what I am loading up for.

    Just bought 5 from http://www.dcssportscards.com/ for $44 a box. Free shipping and a $5 off coupon out there.

    Wonder how the prices will turn out lomg term. Texas 2011s are going for like $30.

    I haven't bought a sports card in 16 years but I would buy a 2014 product too if UD felt inclined to make one. Plently of new NFL rookies by then (Lacy, AJ, Jones, Warmack, Fluker, Square, Williams, Milliner, Lester, Nico, CJ, and maybe more if you can believe it).

    I ordered two boxes. They are really nice cards. They're suppose to come with one autographed card each, but mine came with two each.
