Worst Set of 2008...
For a while I was convinced UD X was going to win that award, but I was wrong. This highly coveted award definitely goes to 2008 UD Documentary. By far the most useless waste of money this year. I just opened my blaster, and I got air. I lie, I got 2 Pujols, 1 Cano, 1 Jorge, 1 Nady, and 1 Tulo. But really, that isn't that great.
My biggest problem with this set is that there are cards stamped with the "Rookie Card" logo, yet give no indication of who that player is on the back, and some of them you can't see a uniform number or the back of them to know who you got. What is the point of that? The bigger rookies I know their faces, like Longoria for example. But other guys, they might as well have put Chewbacca on them because they would be worth the same to me.
Much like Sooz, I will be putting together a list of these to get rid of. However, I want to throw this out there: I am looking for all Pujols from this set, as well as Yankees. Even if you have one for a bunch of these, I don't care. I am only interesting in completing the Yankees and Pujols.
For $20 I got to waste like 10 minutes of my life on this blaster, and feel like I got a bunch of new stuff.
Has anyone opened some of these packs? More importantly, what do you think of this set and the idea of one card per game per team? Most importantly, do you have any Pujols or Yankees? =) Let us know, and feel free to complain about this set- we like cranky people.
