Here are the 1/1′s. If you recall I pulled the blue Nixon 1/1 out of my last case. I also pulled two 1/1 Ichiros out of my cases. The odds are beyond comprehension to do so randomly, thus the collation gremlins have struck. Although not a high dollar card per se, this picture does no justice to the Delgado, it is quite possibly one of the most striking cards I have ever seen in person. Even more so than the Iconic Pee Wee Reese Bowman. You may laugh, but I am serious
Want to hear something awesome? The Nixon and Biggio were in the same pack, 7th to last pack, in the last box.
I got 3 expired redemptions of note. Cal Ripken Topper, Jeter Topper and Jeter Strokes of Genius. Ouch Upper Deck, ouch. People would ask why I am upset about this knowing there are expired redemptions? Try pulling $1k of expired redemptions and see how you feel. UD has these in stock but won’t give them to me. The reson why I am really upset is because in 10 cases I have pulled 3 expired griffey toppers, 3 expired Jeter toppers, 1 Ripken Expired Topper and 1 Jeter Strokes of Genius. That means that Upper Deck put out a severly half baked product. To be fair, I pulled two hard signed toppers out of these cases. Another Jared Weaver and another Andy Laroche.
and I had a few more that I didn’t include in the pic. The sad thing is that every once in a while you will pull a redemption for Perkins, Baker, and Owings. To the argument that not every auto can be a winner. Remember, this was a $80 – $100 msrp box.
Separate post will have the parallels. Two more cases tomorrow.
