2009 Upper Deck Series 1


Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.  I'm too lazy to scan new packs in (I'm also too lazy to do much anything else), so I continue to clear out the scanned folder on my computer.  Here's a pack of 2009 Upper Deck Series 1!

Our regular readers will quickly realize that this set has been featured on this site already.  Our not-so-regular readers will roll their eyes at this repack staple.  Anyway, Madding beat me to the punch with this set, but I spent the time to scan it and type up the player list, so I might as well post it.  Here's what I got:

#50 – Julio Lugo
#15 – Adam Dunn
#78 – Nick Swisher
#153 – Lance Berkman
#132 – Marcus Thames
#195 – Matt Kemp

I like the design of the set, with the above-average Upper Deck photography.  However, with the Berkman, Thames, and Kemp cards back-to-back-to-back, we're approaching 2014 Topps redundancy territory.

#403 – Jonathon Niese (RC)
#457 – Team Leaders:  Dodgers
#157 – President of South Africa (Upper Deck 20th Anniversary)
Not Pictured –
#481 – Brandon Phillips (Checklist)
#265 – Johnny Damon
#250 – Johan Santana

Johan signed with Baltimore back in March.  I had no idea this happened, and I'd like to think I follow the game pretty closely.  It's sad to see injuries take it's toll on (at the time) one of the premiere pitchers in the game.

#267 – Hideki Matsui
#233 – Jason Kubel
#353 – Todd Wellemeyer
#387 – Alex Rios
#370 – Eric Hinske
#380 – Vicente Padilla (back)

Not a bad pack if it was 2009.  Anyway, that's all for now.  Thanks for reading!

Nice Mandela I really liked collecting those. Looking at these and Upper Deck's photography, man do I miss their MLB stuff.
