UDx thoughts

I know many collectors are completely against the 2009 Upper Deck X, but I could not help myself and picked up a hobby box of the stuff. For about $1.13 per pack (I paid $27 per box), not too bad. A little over the cost of a retail blaster box. And you are guaranteed one jersey card per box.

The set size is small (100 cards) so it’s not too hard or expensive to finish a set. I will say that this set is definitely not for people who are trying to make money off the cards. I do not think that the large X on every card is needed, but that has been addressed by most bloggers already.

Breakdown of box contents:
Regular Cards: 89/100 (Just missing 1, 13, 22, 47, 51, 54, 66, 71, 78, 85, 100)
Die-cut Parallel Cards: 24/100

Something with this card does not seem to sit right with me. He just passed away and you are trying to capitalize on his death. Also if you are going to make a card, use a photo not an image like this. I think everyone deserves respect.

I was very surprised to get NO doubles in the entire box, including the inserts. It was a nice cheap box.

    Any interest in trading the Josh Hamilton X4?

    I like these. I’m almost positive this will be the next box I purchase online – this or 08 Heroes (retail, of course!) At $20 for a box with one relic, it’s kinda the same thing.
