Repack Resurrection: 2009 Upper Deck X

Up next, the visible pack that partially made up my mind to take this beast home: 2009 Upper Deck X.

Really?

Oh yeah. X is still one of the sets I'm trying to complete, and I figured I had at least an outside chance of snagging one of the die-cut parallels I still need. Let's see how this goes.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:

90 Ian Kinsler

10 Jonathan Papelbon

39 Carlos Lee Die-Cut
Rats, already have that one! But at least I fulfilled Night Owl's unspoken axiom that at least one out of every three packs contains a Carlos Lee parallel or insert. I'm 2 for 2 so far.

X-LB Lance Berkman Xponential
This is a good one. I'm not officially collecting the Xponentials, but this will go in the '09 X binder with the others for aesthetic reasons.

8 Kevin Youkilis

59 Mark Teixeira

Well, I didn't get the die-cut I wanted, but at least I raised awareness about my quest to stamp out empty spots in my binder. As of this moment, I still need these:
3 4 5 6 8 9 10 13 14 17 21 23 24 27 30 31 34 38 40 42 43 44 48 51 52 56 57 58 59 60 63 65 72 73 75 79 80 81 84 86 90 93 96 97

If you have any of these to trade, hit me up. I'll be passing out the lapel ribbons late next week.

I can offer 4 of the die cuts from your list: 21, 27, 31, 75. Let me know what you think.
