A few weeks ago I was having a good work day and on an impulse I picked up a couple of boxes from Blowout Cards one of which was UD 2009 X. I just got around to opening the box and was mildly surprised how much I enjoyed it thus alleviating any buyer's remorse.
Well how did we do?
The box yielded 90% of the set-or 90 of the 100 base cards and no doubles. I received 24 die cut parallels, or one per pack each of which contained 6 cards. The box also yielded 8 of the Xponential basic insert, 6 of X2, 4 X3, 3 X4, 2 X5, and 1 X6. The "hit" I received was a Vlad jersey card. Since I already had the Redbird base cards I was hoping to pull a King Albert X6. Alas, no luck. This was a Randy Johnson hot box as it gave me X2, X4, and X6 inserts.
Overall this was an enjoyable $20 or so-I will certainly pick up the 10 missing base cards and any inserts I can get in dime boxes. Here are the highlights. Of course we will start off with the Birds.
The die cuts, Redbird Holliday, Miggy-just watched Miggy hit his 400th homer off of the Redbird pitcher Lyons. I love Miggy but I wouldn't be sad if it was rained out, Jake Peavy, and Randy Johnson.
The Xponential X inserts St. Louis native Ryan Howard, and King Felix.
Xponential X3, more Lance love, Junior, and more Miggy.
