2006 Upper Deck Update


I did not want to interrupt the flurry of posts these last couple of weeks, so I have been laying low.  And after my run of non-sports packs, it's about time to get back to the old Target discount bin.  Here's a pack of 2006 Upper Deck Update!

As madding alluded to in his Series 2 post, this Update set pushes the set to 1250 cards!  1250 cards (insert Don West voice here)!!!!!  Let's see what we got:

#1022 - Jim Johnson (RC)
#1197 - Matt Stairs
#1160 - Rajai Davis (RC)

Rookie cards a-plenty here in this set, including cards for Dustrin Pedroia, Carlos Marmol, Adam Jones, Stephen Drew, and Chad Billingsley.  For some reason, the Pat Neshek rookie card is pretty valuable, at least to those who follow Beckett.

#1134 - Melky Cabrera (RC)
#1094 - Jeff Mathis (RC)
#1070 - Bob Wickman (back)

#SA-JH - Star Attractions:  Jeremy Hermida
#1239 - Derek Jeter (Checklist)

The Jeter's a short print (anyone know why?), so it's a pretty high-priced card in the Beckett.  Close enough to a hit for me!

Anyway, that's the pack.  Thanks for reading!

I remember putting this set together. It was tough with all of the shortprints. The Jeter is a shortprint along with all of the team checklists. Neshek is a shortprint (I think) along with Adam Jones are also shortprints among others. BTW, Pedroia's rookie card was in 2004 Donruss Elite Extra Edition.

I'm still putting this set together. Need a handful of the sp's, have a few to trade for them. My site
