2006 Upper Deck Series 1 Fat Pack


Hope everyone is doing well.  April 23rd was the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field, but I totally spaced out on that and didn't write up a post to celebrate the occasion.  That's alright, I guess; the Cubs didn't start playing there until 1916.  So, barring a post from one of my associates (I don't like posting on APTBNL when someone else posted that day), I'll mark the 100th anniversary of the Cubs' start at Wrigley with some sort of post on 4/23/2016.  Stick around!

Anyway, time to remove some scans from the computer.  It's a 2006 Upper Deck Series 1 Fat Pack!


Oh yes, this is the 5th 2006 Upper Deck pack posted on the site.  These guys pulled out all the stops that year.  I only scanned a few cards, including the Team Upper Deck Inserts.  Here's what I got:

Top Half

#291 – Anderson Hernandez (RC)
#6 – Dallas McPherson
#234 – Terrence Long
#251 – Hong-Chih Kuo (RC)
#460 – Josh Rupe (RC)
#175 – Dmitri Young
#264 – Prince Fielder
#381 – Robert Rick
#96 – Mark Prior
#404 – Felix Hernandez
#119 – Scott Podsednik
#252 – Oscar Robles
#12 – John Lackey
#468 – Aaron Hill
#183 – Placido Polanco
#UD-4 – Alex Rodriguez (All Upper Deck Team)
#UD-38 – Manny Ramirez (All Upper Deck Team)

The McPherson and Long cards are very cool.  If Upper Deck still had a license, would they be providing excellent photography on their cards like they did then, or would they follow the existing image route Topps does?

Bottom Half

#196 – Juan Pierre
#405 – Gil Meche
#120 – Tadahito Iguchi
#180 – Mark Woodyard (RC)
#308 – Gary Sheffield
#23 – Claudio Vargas
#226 – Jimmy Gobble
#378 – Khalil Greene
#93 – Jeromy Burnitz
#24 – Conor Jackson
#480 – Roy Halladay
#195 – Juan Encarnacion
#430 – Matt Morris
#145 – Grady Sizemore
#297 – Robert Andino (RC)
#UD-13 – Hideki Matsui (All Upper Deck Team)

Hey Jeromy, don't leave Juan hanging!  Or, um, hey Juan, don't leave Jeromy hanging!

Here are the Team Upper Deck Inserts that came in the Fat Packs.  Note that I got an extra for me!

Which of these things is not like the other?

Anyway, that's the pack.  Everyone have a great week...thanks for reading!
