2008 Upper Deck Artifacts Baseball

This pack was purchased because I'll try anything once.
Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
167 Eiffel Tower

139 Eugenio Velez (RC)

46 Torii Hunter (Come on, Upper Deck, get with the funny faces already!)

16 Dustin Pedroia
191 Nobel Prize Slightly Lighter (?) Parallel (This card stands out as the reason not to buy any more of this set. I looked it up, and up this very this moment, a total of 797 Nobel Prizes have been awarded. That means there are 797 of these medals out there. Would be nice to get to see what one looks like up close, right? But we get drawing of one. Great. To me this drawing in merely of sticker book quality. I'm talking about the ones that you can buy at a drug store, they're about 20 pages long, with two pages of punch-out stickers that a child uses to complete various pictures. Cheap.)

Verdict: Garbage.
