Hero Cardboarding

Welcome to TWIC!!! I found some blasters i was actually interested in at the local Wally World and the best part is that they were 40% off, not as great as 50%, but good enough for me. I decided to go with an 08 UD Baseball Hereos Blaster for nine bucks. These are the first packs i have ripped of the product but i am a little familiar with the cards since i have received some of the cards via trades. On to the break:

Pack 1

Stan the Man
UD is letting us know they are MVPs
ummm... DUH!!

Pack 2

Wade "claims 5th Batting Title"
Wright "Climbs into 30-30 Club"
Trio of Young Pitching Stars
Alex Gordon "Connects for First Homer"
really UD what is heroic about that?

Pack 3

Peavy "Captures NL Triple Crown"
remember when Peavy was a super stud
Bench "Wins Second Straight WS Title"
Buchholz "Throws No Hitter"
i remember that

Pack 4

McCann "Homers in Fifth Straight Game"
really a fielding photo, maybe a hitting would have made a little more sense
Yount serial numbered and odd color background
my hit

Pack 5

great photo
why are two homers Hereo worthy?
a new Reggie for my collection
Carlton 3000Ks
love the history

Pack 6

Mags "Bangs Out AL Batting Title"
and helped me win my NFBC Fantasy League
an Ichiro
wish the photo was a little larger
Pack 7

Bill Hall "Makes Mother's Day Special"
to bad UD couldn't make the card special
and actually use a photo of Bill with a PINK bat

Robinson MVP
vintage photo, great
Upton "Nearly Swings for Cycle"
what? seriously?
Pack 8

Gibson "Earns MVP and CY"

Pack 9

I really like these cards, i find the facts a nice touch, its just when UD reaches to include someone, they should have realized that maybe they shouldn't be in the set. The cards are thick and the pictures are sharp along with a classic design, very fun blaster.

Thanks for checking out TWIC.
