I don’t really celebrate but it’s always nice to bust wax any day of the year. I received a blaster of ’08 Upper Deck w/the guaranteed hit, the Target $9.99 two packs plus a game-used, and 4 packs of Hidden Treasures, which was full of nothing but hidden garbage. All in all, it was pretty fun. Here are the results.
2008 Upper Deck
This was an awesome blaster! I don’t normally get any game-used of anyone worth a damn but I pulled an Andy Petitte and although today he is the equivalent of pulling a Miguel Tejada, it is still a nice card. I got even more Starquest but two stuck out of the pack. The Ichiro has a shine to it. I’d tell you the color but I am color blind so I will tell you it says Ultra-Rare on the back and it has a scratch off. I am too lazy to find out what that’s about. The Carlos Lee also has a cool shine and after turning the card over I see that it is a Super Rare. Of course, it’s just Carlos Lee but it is still a nice card. I also got the Rudy Guiliani/Steve Bartman card which is two months too late. Besides, no one was going to vote for a guy with serious mafia ties (Bernard Kerik).
Target $9.99 pack
This thing was absolutely atrocious. It contained a fat pack of 2006 Upper Deck and out of 32 cards, there was only 1 star, David Ortiz. The game-used is of a player I have never heard of but I am sure some might have. It’s got a great design but something tells me it’s a common hit. Also, for some reason the 2006 Upper Deck look very familiar. I can’t seem to put my fingers on it, though.
Wow, talk about a scam. Good thing we actually won these four packs at Dave & Busters otherwise I’d be a little upset. Is it just me or does Bob Walk look like a guy you’d see on ‘To Catch A Predator’? If anyone needs a 1984 checklist, I am your man. I’d say the Sierra is the nicest-looking card out of the four packs, followed by the Strawberry, and the Eckersley.
