2009 Upper Deck 2 Pack Highlights
I bought myself 2 packs for Valentines Day as I mentioned earlier. There wasn't any "mojo" in them, but some cards I would like for my PC so it's cool. I'm always happy to add Yankees to my binder, especially Mr. Cano. I scanned those and some of the insert cards in case anyone is interested in those. Although there were no Pujols cards in either pack, I did get an e-mail from Tricia at the Hamiltonian that she had the Pujols base card, and the Pujols CL card if I needed them. Sweet!! Now I am done with Upper Deck because I am sure someone will come up with the other card in the set of him for me, or I will pick it up on eBay. Stop by the Hamiltonian and check out her blog, she just posted a pack break one.
I only opened 4 packs of the 2009 Upper Deck so I don't think I could make a fair judgment for a review. The one thing I will say is that the cards are pretty much the same as last year, with a different bottom and the back are virtually the same as well.
I decided that it's a joy and a pain that Target has not had any blasters. My credit card and wallet are thanking Target, while I curse them. Though my wallet is obviously smarter, I can't help but wonder what might be lurking in one of the blasters that seem to not exist. Last year at this time there were UD packs and blasters EVERYWHERE, as well as Topps. It's scarce around here except my job, which has hobby packs/boxes. My next mission is to find all Pujols Starquest cards (and while were at it, I don't think I ever got all of last years).
