    UD may have screwed up SPA

    First auto on ebay is a sticker. Part of the appeal was on card autos. This is an insert so the base may still be, but who knows with UD

    There was also a Tony Gonzalez auto from that same subset that was stickered. These cards come from SP Authentic RETAIL though, so who knows how the hobby version will look a week from now. I'd say that the rookie autos will still be auto'd on card.

    It is SP Authentic, only a retail version of the product....I think.

    It's just an insert set. SP Authentic does not get released at retail.

    I have saw SP Authentic (2008) blasters being opened on another forum which guarantee a GU each.

    From the looks of what I am seeing it might be entirely different than the hobby version to come but apparently the blasters are labeled as "SP Authentic".

    I saw a few blasters of these as well the other night at walley world when my wife went to get groceries.I contemplated on getting one but I never have much luck with the football so I left it alone.But they are available retail.

    SP Authentic is not in retail stores.
    What you are seeing in the stores is Upper Deck SP, they are not the same thing.

    Re: UD may have screwed up SPA

    These cards in retail stores are DEFINATELY SP Authentic cards. Just check out this willie parker auto (not my auction)

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Willie-Parker-08-SP ... dZViewItem

    just read the fine print on bottom of the back of the card and you will clearly see "2008 SP Authentic Football". But like already mentioned, this is a retail insert, so who knows if the hobby will be stickered or on card.

    Re: UD may have screwed up SPA

    Check this out on UD's website:

    http://b2b.upperdeck.com/assets/2008_SP ... otball.pdf

    If in fact these are SP Authentic, then they have advertised falsely that ALL Autographs are on card.
    I wonder how they cover this one up?
