Arrow Exquisite Ben Simmons Autograph/99 Rookie

Didnít even know his existed...

https://m.ebay.com/itm/2016-17-Upper...h/272885294814

I have to admit for Upper Deck not being licensed this card is pretty dang sweet.

What you think 25/99 is worth?

I'm not big on simmons as a player, but this is one of this biggest boom or bust cards ever.

His only other rookie autos look like turds.

definitely wish he was in basketball gear at least. Dunking or shooting or something... Instead the photo is in a hall way basically and looks like a super fan snapped a shot lol

It's pretty much the only reason to buy a box of the new Goodwin Champions boxes, everything else in it is awful.

I didn't know these cards existed until the other day. I actually like the look of the card and know they couldn't use a basketball photo but you can't go wrong with the 03-04 Exquisite design. I just didn't know whether to consider it a rookie auto since it's in the 2017 Goodwin Champions.

I'll jump in on it too. That card looks like a homemade custom card. Horrible picture. He's your exclusive and you can't get a decent picture?

Terrible photo. Why not atleast a draft night photo in his suit? Can UD not do that?

This card is terrible. Recycled design, terrible photo. I'm glad Upper Deck doesn't have a license anymore.

Why does every card set have to have a white background? Why do we always get the same holofoil treatment? Why can’t we get in action shots? Why can’t these companies get the player to sign nicer? Why can’t we get a unique design?

Why can’t we even find new complaints????? MAYBE ITS NOT THE MANUFACTURERS

Non licensed garbage.

As someone who tries to collect key Simmons stuff, this doesn't even register as anything legit to collect.

Overrated design to begin with, it’s been used in 03-04 (where it belongs), 09-10, 13-14, and now again this year.

I’d love if they could make 05/06 exquisite RaP again.

Yup. Still think it has the potential to be a monster card too...

I'm ok with that photo as long as it's Upper Deck Exquisite.

How much better would this look? Took 2 minutes in Adobe but I would prefer this image to the one they used.

I thought it was a fake at first b/c I couldn't find any information about any 2016-17 Exquisite Basketball set, but apparently it's in 2017 Goodwin... That's interesting. When I first thought it was fake, something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ben-Simmons-...AAAOSw28pZxprW, I thought there's no way anyone can trust any card anywhere, considering how real it looked
