2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars - Hobby

This pack ended up being a total waste. The most interesting aspect of the pack is that it is a Hobby pack, but it was available at my local Wawa (Philadelphia area convenience chain). The pack went for $3.17 including PA Sales Tax.

The wrapper which clearly states these cards are not authorized by MLB etc etc.

It strikes me as odd that the rookies nearly include the workd "Topps" in their name. I am not sure whether these are an insert or merely the extension of the base set. I posted the flip side of one of the cards, which looks pretty similar to the generic mailed in UD backs on many of their cards.

Nothing really to see here - I am sure these will be in bargain bins by the fall, and still will not be worth $1.49.
