Case Break: 2009-10 UD Basketball Draft Edition: Box 10

Draft25This might turn out to be a decent card if Harden, Rubio and Curry collectors all start battling each other in the bidding for it.  I have no clue what kind of interest there is for something like this.  It’s got a very low serial number though so there should be some interest.  There are a lot of collectors out there who chase all of the different parallels out there so hopefully this one will garner some interest.

I’ve got to say that I really like this color that Upper Deck chose for the /25 parallels.  The colored parallels of the draft cards look sharp where the plain grey ones just look blah.  If all of the cards had colors like this to them then I would have liked the set a whole lot more.

AutosThis was another weird box for autographs and so I decided to scan them all together again.

Robert Vaden /999 – See previous post

Jeff Pendergraph /199 – Here’s another example of a base auto that is numbered lower than the first level of auto parallels.  Strange.  You have to wonder if sheets of autograph labels got destroyed or something.  This card was pretty damaged on the top right corner.  Maybe it happened when Pendergraph suffered a season ending injury before this season.  I wonder, if I send this card to Upper Deck for replacement, if I will have the new card back before Pendergraph is able to play again next season.

Korvotney Barber /249 – Looks to be playing for FIBA Europe.

Josh Heytvelt /249 – Went undrafted, played for the Washington Wizards 2009 Summer League team and is now playing for Lottomatica Roma.

This box also contained a Jordan Collection redemption card.  This time I’m getting Demar Derozan.

That red/maroon? parallel outshines the autos.

It definitely does. It is by far the sharpest looking card in the box. It's too bad that the whole set didn't look like that. The regular set isn't terrible either, but they did do a great job on that one parallel.
