I opened the buy back. Boring.
So I got to ripping. Here are the highlights from that box:
20th Anniversary Buybacks
UD 20th Anniversary
Cal Ripken Jr.
Ken Griffey Jr.
"I Love You" email virus
Opening Day in Japan
Matt Den Dekker
Derek Dietrich USA Baseball
At this point, since I need to go to work, I don't have time to open the other box. I figure let me just look at the buyback because I have no patience. I open the other box and see there is no buy back and got annoyed. I think I got hosed.
I go to work and I'm reading card blog (because that's what people do at work) and I read a comment on Wax Heaven that you'd know a hot box by the buy back. There wasn't more specification than that, but I think I got one box with a buyback and one without. I wonder if that's the difference.
About three days go by before I remembered about the Upper Deck box again.
Last night, after I got home from work after midnight, I remembered the other box.
Sure enough, it was a hot box. It wasn't great, but it is what I asked for.

That's the break of the two boxes. While the cards weren't overly impressive. I still had a lot of fun opening this break.
And, really, isn't that the point of all this.
