Show & Tell: Numero Dos
I have a large part of my collection that has never been “showed off” and thought that a show & tell series would help fix that problem.
Back in 2009, I attempted to build the entire ’09 Upper Deck base set solely off of busting packs. All 1,007 cards. That was a terrrible idea, but we don’t speak about that anymore. In the series 2 hobby boxes, there was a one card “buy back” pack commemorating Upper Deck’s 20th anniversary. These things weren’t that bad of a deal.. I heard of some pretty cool cards coming out of these. Actual letterman from the back of jerseys, not that manufactured crap.
I bought two hobby boxes of series 2. The first box’s buy back pack contained the Rickie Weeks rookie autograph I gave away in my contest a couple weeks ago. The second box contained the sweet Griffey Jr./Sosa dual at the top of the page. I was pretty excited about this, being the Reds fan that I am. Pieces of bat from two members of the 600 home run club? I’ll take that any day.
