Discount Blaster: '08 Masterpieces

As I desperately try to complete the 90-card base of 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces, I found a discounted blaster at Wal-Mart to see if I could knock a couple of cards off of my want list. Unfortunately, I did not get a single one of those cards, but I did get a Warren Spahn SP, as well as a Kosuke Fukudome rookie. I also pulled a jersey card of Jonathan Papelbon. Like what Topps does with its Allen & Ginter relics, I love how Upper Deck went a little extra with these. Instead of cutting a hole in a base issue card (like Panini tends to do) they added a frame around it to give it that extra special look. Even though relics are no longer that big of a deal in the hobby, I like that Upper Deck, at least for this release, treated them like one.

Anyway, I now have a few extra cards from this set, so if anyone is looking for any, let me know.


  1. Hey Matt. I'm trying to build the base set as well and have ended up w/ a few extras. Check my trade bait section on my blog for a list of what I have (and need!). Perhaps we can help each other out.

  2. Just went through my doubles. Sorry that I can't help you.
