I found myself in a blue parallel store after work the other night. Its very interesting who you see there at 11pm, but that's a different story.
I found myself on the card looking to scratch the pack busting itch. I didn't want to buy any 2014 base because even though I don't have either series complete, I'm at the point of diminishing returns. More dupes is not on the agenda.
Then I saw this:
My first thought was "$1.98? Sure, why not?"
My second thought was "2008? Have these been floating around the store for 6 years?"
If you'll notice the packs says "34 cards plus 2 Rookie Debut cards". That's not what I got. I got 33 base cards, 2 different inserts, and 1 card that I think is from a different UD product.
So let's see the highlights:
Ok, that's not fair.
These are the inserts I got instead of the Rookie Debut inserts. Is it possible the pack was searched a re-sealed? Eh..not the end of the world.
This card is apparently from 2008 Upper Deck Yankee Stadium Legacy, which as far as I know is separate from 2008 Upper Deck. Then again, I was long out of the hobby in 2008, so what do I know?
I guess that will get rid of the pack-busting itch. For a little while anyway.
