2009 Upper Deck Series 2 Blaster Results

with 3 comments

Okay so yesterday I had a post about 2009 UD series 2.  Well on my way home from work today I stopped by Target, and for those of you know me you know my golden rule…if you stop at Target for something you must pick up cardboard while you are there.  Thus, I picked up a blaster to see if I can knock off some of those cards on my want list.  Just an FYI, I also ordered a series 1 hobby box online yesterday, so you’ll see that review sometime soon.

I only needed about a third of the base cards that I pulled from the blaster, so I’ve updated my want list for those, and also added the doubles that I now have.  As for the rest:

UD4

Above we have a Jay Bruce ‘Emerald Super Rare’ (again, can someone tell me just how rare some of the Starquest parallels are?), a Michael Jordan Goodwin preview (I love, love, love this card.  I used to be a HUGE MJ collector back in the day…more to come on this in a future post), another Kyle Gibson jersey (this time gray instead of navy), and a 20th ann. Mike Schmidt.  As I did yesterday, here are the Starquest cards for those chasing them:

Silver Common:  Lincecum, Phillips, Wang, Pedroia, B.J. Upton

Blue Uncommon:  Hamels, Kinsler, Youkilis

Gold Rare: B.J. Upton

Emerald Super Rare:  Bruce

By the way, has anyone heard of this Zistle site yet?  Check out my Ginter Code partner’s blog for a post about it…I think I might give it a try.  Looks as if the more collectors the better, so I urge all you readers to check it out, it’s free!  I’ll put a post up about my experience when I get a chance.

2009 Upper Deck Series 2 Box Break (and updated want list)!

leave a comment »

Okay, first I have to say that I’m sorry to the readers out there for my lack of posts.  I’ve been in and out of town the past couple weeks and work has been pretty hectic.  I’ve been reading all the hobby blogs out there, I just haven’t had time to sit down and write a post (I know I know, I need to get my priorities straight!).  By the way, I went to the Braves/Phillies game on Friday night, and I must say that I was impressed.  It was my first time going to a Braves game, and the stadium atmosphere puts my Great American Ballpark to shame (maybe if the Reds would actually field a team in the second half of a season I would think otherwise, but that’s neither here nor there).  I remember watching the ’95 World Series as a kid with my dad and watching them do the Tomahawk chop…watching it (and doing it) in person was amazing.  If you’ve never been I highly recommend it.

On to my box break!  Okay, so I bought a hobby box of UD series 2 a couple weeks back and I’m just now getting to making a post about it.  I bought it for something like $75 or $80 from my local hobby shop that has since closed down.  I won’t bother to bore you much with the base cards other than to say my want list is now updated.  I didn’t get any doubles which is good, but I’m still about 20% (100 cards or so) away from finishing the set.  I think I will probably go ahead and finish series 1 as well, but all I’ve bought so far is a blaster so I will probably pick up another hobby box and post my want list for series 1 after that.

Anyways, on to the non-base cards:

UD1

First we have two Goodwin Champions preview cards (Ichiro and Bill Rodgers).  I wasn’t planning on starting a brand new set in 2009 as I wanted to work on organizing everything I do have and getting all my want lists up, but I’ll admit, these cards do look pretty nice.  Once I figure out how many cards are in the set, and how much the boxes cost, I make have to make a run at building this set.

I also received an O-Pee-Chee preview Beckett which I’ll probably send off to some Red Sox lover.  I was happy with the Kyle Gibson USA Baseball jersey card.  This guy should end up a stud for the Twins in a few years so we will see.  Lastly, there is a gold parallel of Brad Ziegler that is numbered to 99.

UD2

Next up is the 20th anniversary cards, which I turned away pretty happy with.  You can’t complain about 2 Tiger’s (even though he choked this weekend, although I have to give credit to Yang with that eagle) and a Jr. Griffey.  Does anyone know of anyone actually trying to complete this set?  I have a bunch of these from Goudey as well.

UD3

Lastly we have our Starquest cards.  I just showed a few of my favorites because I think these are seeded one per pack.  Anyone know someone trying to complete this set either?  Shown above we’ve got a ‘Silver Common’ Bruce (my 2nd favorite player on my favorite team) and Longoria (future HOF’er).  There’s also a ‘Gold Rare’ Lincecum and a ‘Black Ultra Rare’ Morneau.  If anyone can tell me just how Rare and Ultra Rare these cards are let me know.  For those of you chasing the Starquest cards, here is the full list, and pretty much all can be had:

Silver Common:  Webb, McCann, Crawford, Beltran, Hamels, Longoria, Liriano, Kinsler, Bruce, Papelbon, Morneau, Youkilis

Blue Uncommon: B.J. Upton, Granderson, D. Price, Pedroia, Markakis, Lincecum

Gold Rare:  B.J. Upton, Pedroia, Lincecum

Emerald Super Rare:  McCann, Liriano

Black Ultra Rare:  Morneau

Be sure to check out my updated want list…any of the non-base cards you see above aren’t on there yet, but consider them available!

2009 Topps Magic Football Pack Break

with 2 comments

I stopped by my local Target today to grab a few things, and had to abide by my golden rule:  when inside a Target, thou must purchase cardboard.

I’ve bought a ton of baseball the past few months, and a little bit of basketball, but haven’t bought much football at all, even though it is arguably my favorite sport.  I don’t know much about the current football products so I grabbed Topps Magic, as the retail box boasted of one auto per box.

You can see the scans below (for some reason there looks to be a lot of faint horizontal lines through the cards, not sure what is going on with my scanner but those aren’t really on the cards).  If you have an interest in any of these cards let me know, I’m not really a fan of any of these players because none of them are wearing a Bengals uniform (WHO DEY!).
