Here’s the first box break video from the 2007 Masterpieces case. The format for these posts will be the video and then scans of the hits. Hopefully you enjoy the videos. They were fun to do and I think they should be fun to watch as well.
I liked Jason Bay during the short stint he spent with the Red Sox, but letting him go looks like another smart move on the part of Theo Epstein. He didn’t fare well in New York at all. Two years later and we’ve got an outfield of Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury and J.D. Drew. No one is missing Bay at this point. I’m hoping he can rebound in New York since Mets fans need at least one thing to go right for them.
Green Linen/Windsor: Richard Nixon, Roger Clemens, Travis Hafner, Albert Pujols and Yogi Berra/Jackie Robinson
Michael Jordan Serious Black /99 and Justin Morneau Blue Steel /50
Jered Weaver, Dice-K Matsuzaka and Hank Blalock
This was not a fun way to start off the case at all. This is an expired redemption card for a Micah Owings Stroke of Genius autographed card. I have contacted Upper Deck and they asked for all of my expired redemption codes. They let me know that each expired redemption is dealt with on a case by case basis and that they couldn’t guarantee that I would get anything, but this is better than nothing. At this rate, I’ll be getting mystery packages from Upper Deck every couple of months.
There you go, I think the Dice-K will be staying in my collection. The Jordan was already been sold, but everything else is available for sale. Let me know if there’s something that you’re interested in and I’ll send you an offer.
