2009 Upper Deck Series 2 Starquest Box, 75 ct.
I did not want to lose this item on Listia since I'm collecting this set, and it's a high number series which I most lacking. Thought it would be a good opportunity to pick up a bunch of cards I needed.
It went for 15,605 which might be the most credits I've ever used to win something.
But I wanted it, I wanted it real bad.
Let's tear in to the 3-card Starquest pack first.
Meh, nothing I'm interested in and no uncommon or rare cards, all turquose common.
As a daughter read off the card numbers from the 75-card block, I give a woo-hoo when we came across one I needed and then she'd know to set those aside.
Of the 75 cards, I ended up with 14 that I needed.
Had hoped for more, but not too shabby.
These 3 Angels cards were in the dupes pile.
But I also pulled two 20th Anniversary cards.
These are numbered 1453 and 1378. Yikes!
What's this set numbered to? 5000?
Anyone crazy enough to collect this set?
Here now, is the best part of this box.
This card made the 15,605 credits worth it:
2009 Upper Deck USA National Team USAB-MG
These USA Baseball cards are a TOUGH pull and will probably be what keeps me from completing this set for a long time come.
But, all-in-all I'm happy.
