No East Coast Bias? Yea Right!

You know I love a discounted blaster. Sometimes I even buy stuff I don't really want or need if it's discounted. Maybe I need a 12 step program.

Over the last week, I picked up two discounted blasters of 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes. They were priced at an irresistable $8.98 each! These nine pack blasters actually have cards with real, authentic MLB logos and everything!

I didn't hit any major UD mojo, but I did get a couple of colorful parallels. Here is where the East Coast bias comes in to play.

I pulled a green Phil Hughes parallel, #258/499. Is anyone surprised I pulled a Yankee? Anyone? I didn't think so.

The other blaster gave up this tan(?) Mike Lowell #99/149. That's a better number I guess, but still...East Coast!

Each pack also had the 1 per pack charcoal parallels. They are not numbered of course.

At this point, I'll probably see how far I am from completing the set, but if anyone is interested in any cards from this set, just let me know!


  1. Please let me know if you have: 7 8 17 77 101 109 115 118 119 120 135 138 139 188 189

  2. Those green UD Heroes cards are fantastic. I've got to make a run on those on COMC!
