I haven’t busted any wax in over a month (since M & M) and today we went to our “card shop” only to find that 2008 Upper Deck Spectrum was selling at just under $150. When we called our only other shop in the area (about an hour away), they were selling it for $145. Is it just me or is this year’s Spectrum incredibly overpriced? I have seen over 20 different box breaks of this product and with the exception of Wax Breaker who scored a “hot box” with 11 “hits”, it’s all been filled with junk game-used relic cards and below average autographs. I just don’t see how I will bust out $150 for a sub-par baseball release that didn’t exactly impress me last year.
As of now, the only guaranteed buys for me will be Finest and Co-Signers because I am sick of these average releases being so freakin’ expensive.
