"How about these?" he said... "I never knew what to do with 'em..." handing me three packs. "Take 'em"
What I was given was some 2008 Upper Deck Hobby Preview packs... 3 cards per pack. I was going to rip two.. and I put one in the mail pile to send out. When my wife got home, she looked at the cards.... and ripped the third pack. (Sorry dayf)
TONY ROMO-JO!!!!! - Cowboys NFL
sweet! The best player from the best team. I like this stuff already.
Mark Messier - Rangers NHL (apparently, this is a multi-sport set)
Evgeni Malkin - Penguins NHL
Not a Bears fan at all... but this is Walter Payton. A winning pack already.
Three Hall of Famers in one pack. I never have really liked basketball... but if you were going to have two cards, these would be two good places to start...
Pack Three: (once again, sorry dayf)
He's in the wrong damn uniform, so you get the back of the card...
Alex Rodriguez - Yankees MLB
Evgeni Malkin - Penguins NHL - a double... crap.
So it looks like you get two cards of one sport in each pack... but I could be way off too.
Upper Deck seems to have the right players in this set (current and retired) but the photos aren't as crisp and sharp as I've come to expect... and the gold foil on the front is a bit much.
Finally, to those of you I have trades ongoing with... I've got a few packages going out tomorrow... to others, I'll get back to you soon... email problems. (as in, too darn many... lost track of some, sorry)
