2008 Upper Deck A Piece of History

After reading a couple of posts on this stuff I had no intention of picking any up, but somehow I left the card shop with a pack of it in my bag. Might as well open it...

49 - Andruw Jones - Man is this guy having an absolutely terrible year. One decision that I'm sure the Dodgers are sorry they made.
75 - Chase Utley
10 - Chipper Jones - I can't put my finger on it, but for some reason the design for this set just isn't doing it for me.
SS4 - Stadium Scenes - Turner Field - Chipper Jones - #576/699 - OK, this pack was officially meant to be opened by dayf.
172 - USS Enterprise - I think the historical moment cards are probably the reason I picked up a pack of this stuff, but this is not one of the ones I was hoping for...
130 - Ian Kennedy - This has already been mentioned, but the way ROOKIE is written down both sides of each card just makes for an awful looking piece of cardboard.
177 - Boston Tea Party - No Red Sox cards in this pack, but at least I pulled the Boston Tea Party. Hopefully those are boxes of Earl Grey going over the side of the ship. Earl Grey is a horrible tea.
102 - Bill Murphy

I don't know what I was thinking purchasing this pack, and I got pretty much what I expected. I won't be buying any more of these, if anyone needs them they're all available for trade (except for the Boston Tea Party).

Who/what do you collect? I'll trade you something for the Ian Kennedy.

Hi slette,

I collect pretty much anything. I've always followed the local teams, which would be the Boston Red Sox and Hartford Whalers. You don't have to give me anything for the Kennedy though, I'd be happy to send it your way. Just send me an email at shanediaz82@yahoo.com with your address and I'll send it off.
