2008 Upper Deck SP Authentic: Pack 2 of 2

This pack is the world's sole example of the rare three-quarter inversion, prized by philatelists on every continent, including Antarctica.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
12 Joba Chamberlain (Joba's left leg is suffering from one of two conditions: Early-stage zombification or the wrath of Fat Abbott (the "Snatch his ass in a bear trap" part).)

YSL301 Tony Lazzeri (Yawn. Boo. Hiss.)

32 Russell Martin
23 Miguel Cabrera
14 Frank Thomas (In an A's uniform again? Man, that's just getting embarrassing. It's like Vince Lombardi coaching the Redskins. Williams and Reinsdorf just need to suck it up, show some class, and sign Thomas to the Sox, allowing him to retire where he was loved.)

Grade: D
The base cards are all immediately available for trade or sale.

So, wtf, these cards feature the player's uniform number on the front, printed in white just like the background?

Unknown said...

Yeah, the number is in white and is visible only when the card is held at a certain angle. Dumb.

You can't fool me, there are no philatelists in Antarctica! They're all numismatists down there.

And did you just boo Tony Lazzeri? Philistine!

Unknown said...

Boo the concept, not the man.

What can I send ya for the Joba?
