Anyway - here are the results from box 1 - i'll show off box 2 tomorrow and also get my want list up. This first group of cards is for all my fellow bloggers - I know I haven't seen as much Upper Deck on the blog scene as Topps, which I feel is okay, since I really like the Topps product better this year (and last year i got totally hard for UD) -so if you haven't seen your favorite players yet - here you go. We've got Granderson for Grand Cards, Martin For the Night Owl, Miller for Mario, Chipper for Dayf and Captain Canuck, Mauer for Gelman, and a few "Linceys" for Bailey.
Next up were my favorite cards from the box, which of course are Met-centric. Of course Wright and Reyes - the centerpieces of this franchise - we have a great photo of L- Millz, My ROY preseason pick Travis Snider, and a few local Binghamton Mets who grew up last year, Nick Evans and Bobby Parnell.
Next up are just a few of the inserts received. No one cares about YSL, no one cares about documentary. I don't care about the Upper Deck Legacy, and I really don't care about these - as far as the insert card goes, Topps totally busted a good one all up on upper decks proverbial face. The OPCs are nice - I'm glad I got Wright, but really - don't care. The Stars of the Game are nice - Glad I got Wright, but really, who cares - and the rivals.. whatever. All but the Wrights are available - I will be pursuing all the Mets from these however, so if you also don't care, keep me in mind for those.
Brandon Phillips 2 swatch 134/149 - Trade Block
Troy tulowitzki game used swatch and auto 44/99
So, the Tulo I Might hang onto for a while seeing as this is my only card with both a GU and Auto on it - but I am sure eventually if I see a Met I need and someone comes calling for old Troy here, I wont shed a tear to see him go.
