2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects

I think this is the last of my old cheapie packs.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
BDP12 Chris Carter
BDP27 Evan Longoria

BDPP92 Jake Arrieta
BDPP82 Wellington Castillo
BDPP83 Mat Camel Chrome

BDP16 Nick Evans Chrome Refractor

BDP21 Micah Hoffpauir Gold

That was a pack with a little bit of everything, ain'a? A Gamel I didn't have yet, a refractor, and a superstar. I still like the '07 iteration of this product a little more, but this wasn't too shabby.

2009 Upper Deck Icons (Retail)

Another one of those packs that's been sitting around for almost four years.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
36 Edinson Volquez (Camo is not a good look for the Cincinnati Reds organization.)

99 Vernon Wells

1630 20th Anniversary Retrospective New England Patriots (Every time I clicked on Yahoo to check my email this week, there was a headline suggesting that I feel sorry for Tom Brady, Wes Welker, whoever will be replacing Wes Welker, and anyone living within 500 miles of Boston. What's up with that?)

97 Tim Lincecum

7 Alfonso Soriano

Grade: B-
