STRETCHIN' that Budget

A massive haul all for 20.90 shipped:

i love blue
the gold and chrome refractor were also new to me
love the AS documentary card
talks all about Evans AS experience
and the photo really captures it
not sure if its actually him at the AS game or not
(but it feels like it)
the ALCS card, i like but it says Longo & Pena hit back2back jacks
and shows him running off the field
just not the same
the rest are just blahh because of the generic image for each
but that's my whole grip with the set
UD great idea - unfortunately horrible execution
on the seven Longo cards i received
Evan is only mention once

an AWESOME black border masterpiece
2 t206, the mini i was missing
some four panel, at least one is blue

the last nine
are lots of shiny foil
the spectrum although not blue are very nice
i polished off the starquest cards that i didn't have
and never really cared about
but having them now i like the super rare and turquoise
the other two i still feel the same for
i really like the last three
the SP T206 is sweet great contrast in the background
i like everything about the stars of the game card
the pose is solid and the design and colors are fitting
and the baseball heroes card is AWESOME

Not that i am becoming a Price collector or anything but i do like Mr. Price and to add some rookie logos to my collection of him was very nice

i was super excited to score such goodies
44 cards for 20.90
.48 per card
very cool

Thanks for reading TWIC and as always have an awesome cardboarding week :)

Excellent haul for just over $20! The All-Star Game card with the logo front in center is one of my favorites. I agree, UD had a great idea, but dropped the ball when it came to the execution. I would have thought that they would have used a picture from those specific games. I've never seen the 4-panel cards before; I kinda like it. I really like the green Longo card. I haven't seen the "First Edition" UD like the David Price you have, good find.
