I was surprised to see a pack of this at Target tonight, so one made its way into my basket. I know I'll be in the minority here, but I found the '08 Masterpieces baseball checklist inferior to last year's, so I've held off on buying any. The football debut, however, should have a full complement of iconic moments to choose from without having been picked over the year before.
Let's tear in.
Top to Bottom:
56 Kevin Smith (I saw Zack and Miri Make a Porno last week, and now I'm surprised a Detroit Lion was capable of making something that funny.)
12 Earl Bennett
32 Joe Flacco
1 Donnie Avery
Grade: F+ (Only the Avery picture saves this pack.)
This pack was terrible. Is the whole set draft picks? Maybe it's my fault for not reading up on a product before purchasing it, but I feel duped. How are these guys Masterpieces? Which of them has produced a genuine Masterpiece Moment? I see Peyton Manning on the wrapper, I think I'm getting stars. I've got a free bit of advertising advice for the boys down at Absolut Vodka: Absolute Fail. Take a picture of this pack next to a bottle of the stuff. Run with it, Swedes, and run away from this product, everyone else. If this was a baseball pack, I'd have felt Bipped, but since it's football, I think I've been Bubby'd (as in Brister). Maximum suck.
