2008 UD Spectrum Live Blaster Rip


Ok, live box break is coming up in less than a half an hour. You've got about 15 minutes to guess which pack the relic is in. Ten minutes before the break I'll post the first Trivia Question so you have time to Google around for the answer before the break. The next two questions will be during the rip itself. One prize per person so don't be a Mr. Know It All and try to answer everything.

Ok, time for the trivia to start. First up is the baseball question, first person to answer correctly in the comments wins a prize. One prize per person!

BASEBALL QUESTION:

Derek Jeter has an insert set in 2008 Spectrum. He has won the Rookie of the Year award but not the MVP award.

Name the player who came in second to Jeter for the Rookie of the Year in 1996, and the player who beat out Jeter for the MVP in 2006.
