2009 Upper Deck First Edition Football


Hope everyone is doing well.  It's football time, so fans everywhere are getting hyped for Week 1 and their fantasy teams...well, except here in Chicago.  That wasn't fun at all.

Anyway, I'm off work tonight so I might as well post the only other football pack I picked up at The National:

I'm not sure if this is a hobby or retail pack, or even if there was such an option for stripped-down Upper Deck.  10 cards in a pack, so let's see what I got:

#95 - Lance Moore
#85 - Jared Allen

The design for 2009 Upper Deck Football matched the Baseball release.  It's passable, but not great. Too blocky, especially with that First Edition bar on the side.

#164 - Chase Coffman
#112 - Asante Samuel

Illini cameo on that Coffman card.  Chase was in the league for 6 years (playing for 4 teams) and retired after the 2016 season. 

#42 -  DeMarcus Ware
#CT-16 - Adrian Wilson (Crunch Time)

No odds listed on the pack for that Crunch Time insert, although the pack does say there's one insert per pack.

#73 - Justin Durant
#51 - Kevin Smith

There's 200 cards in the set.  Here's the checklist for the curious.
#136 - Donnie Avery
#152 - Andre Brown

I wonder why Andre got the UD photographer session while Chase above did not?  Anyway, he played for 3 teams in 3 years, calling it quits after the 2013 season.

Here's some backs because football:

Anyway, that's the pack.  Light on the stars so that was disappointing, but oh well.  Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for reading!

Not the sexiest pull but fun nonetheless. Good post. You don't see this set much.
