303 Evan Longoria. Kinda cool looking subset. I thought they had one for each team, but it looks like more of a highlight set.
339 Joey Votto
It's looking like a retrospective of Upper Deck sets from the past. Alright. But I'm not to fond of this set though.
333 Clayton Kershaw
I've never liked this set. Never. Nothing good to say about it.
192 Jay Bruce Silver Prospects. Die cut... but why?
379 Clayton Kershaw Gold Prospects and shiny. Again, die cut. Meh.
Now this is more like it. I like the dimensional effect of the picture over the white background.
I'm not thrilled with the balck and white, but it's Mad Dog... what ya gonna do?
another black and white, but with a gold emblem stuck on it. Another parallel?
7 Smoltzie (the only Brave in the damn box)
34 Nick Markakialphabetgreekuzofettakis
I love the colours on these cards. Team oriented, cool design, and the backs have a different picture on them. If you're going to put a picture on the back, it better be different than the one on the front. Am I right?
I got a few of these too... a gold parallel again???
I also pulled my very first YSLBSwasteofspace cards. My first ones. Ever. Hopefully my last ones. Ever.
Now, onto the two autos.
and David Murphy
Overall I give the box an A. I love the cards, and the checklist looks good. The only player out of all the prospects and rookies I pulled that I did not know right away, was my auto of Cha Seung Baek. Figures.
I thought about trading with others to try and complete this sucker, but I did not receive any duplicates out of the box. I think that's the firstUpper Deck product I've ever seen that had no duplicates.
My big pet peeve? Other than the obvious SP's.... people like me bust boxes for the fun of it. I could buy this set on the bay for probably $8.... but I bust wax because of the fun, the chase. Putting together the set. So when you advertise two autos per box, don't give them to me in the very two first packs of the box. Mix things up a little...
