Exquisite or national treasures? Opinions needed - Daniel8sot - 08-22-2012 02:03 PM

After seeing exquisite if you had the choice would yall do national treasures or exquisite for 2011? Thanks.

I would do NT. because exquisite is upper deck and doesnt have the nfl licensing. And I'd rather have an nfl product than ncaa.

I really like Exquisite this year but have to go with an NFL product over NCAA everytime..

Generally speaking the NFL products are better long term, but since I'm a college team collector I enjoy the Upper Deck products. Hate the fact that they ripped the NCAA license from Press Pass and Sage, though... Sad

Personally I liked Exquisite more, but NFL licencing

Here are some pros and cons for you. I chose Exquisite...

National Treasures = Stickers on everything except RPAs
Exquisite = On-Card Autos on everything

National Treasures = RPA is NOT guaranteed
Exquisite = RPA is guaranteed and 1 in 3 boxes gets TWO

National Treasures = between $400-$500
Exquisite = between $500-$600

Everything he said....since I'm more a collegiate collector.

Thanks guys that makes sense I'd rather have nfl license but i love the tradition of the exquisite rookie patch auto, and i know why sensei said exquisite that dalton shadowbox was sweet.

I'd go Exquisite, it's basically a best-of of high end UD products. You've got some shadowbox, some UD Black, and the booklets look a lot better, plus all on-card autos, the drawback is that its still the Cam Newton class, but oh well.

I went with Exquisite because they offered on card autos and guaranteed me an RPA. I had no idea the shadow cards existed when I bought my box. I purchased NT last year and absolutely BOMBED with not a single on card auto or RPA.

If I'm spending 400-500 I better damn well be guaranteed a rookie patch auto. And some on card autos. That's why I prefer Exquisite.
