2007 Upper Deck Series 1 Fat Pack


Hope everyone is doing well.  Today was my eldest son's first day of Kindergarten.  While it seems that an August 14 start date is a bit early, it doesn't take away from the fact that time certainly does fly by.

To honor the occasion, here's a pack from the year he was born.  It's a 2007 Upper Deck Series 1 Fat Pack!

I know what you're all thinking...great, another pack from the king of the baseball repack boxes.  There's already a Series 1 pack on the site.  Well, I agree you're pretty lucky if you get a repack box without a pack from this set, but common, this is a Fat Pack!  There's more cards!  There's exclusive inserts that you can see on the back so you know what insert you're getting!  It was $2.50 for 32 cards!  There', that's all I got.

I did not scan all the cards, just the highlights and the 2 exclusive inserts.  Here's the contents of the top pack:

#198 – Chris Snelling (Mariners)
#401 – Freddy Sanchez (Pirates)
#9 – Chris Stewart (White Sox RC)
#142 – Juan Rivera (Angels)
#250 – Chad Tracy (Diamondbacks)
#313 – Josh Fogg (Rockies)
#74 – Jonathan Papelbon (Red Sox)
#412 – Shane Youman (Pirates RC)
#276 – Ryan Theriot (Cubs)
#136 – Chone Figgins (Angels)
#388 – Chase Utley (Phillies)
#199 – Felix Hernandez (Mariners)
#213 – Scott Kazmir (Devil Rays)
#291 – Edwin Encarnacion (Reds)
#447 – Yadier Molina (Cardinals)
#SP-DJ – Derek Jeter (Yankees)

And here's the bottom pack:

#46 – Juan Salas (Devil Rays)
#308 – Matt Holliday (Rockies)
#391 – Jeff Conine (Phillies)
#154 – Michael Cuddyer (Twins)
#405 – Jason Bay (Pirates)
#343 – Brad Lidge (Astros)
#449 – Chris Duncan (Cardinals)
#180 – Dan Johnson (Athletics)
#457 – Ryan Zimmerman (Nationals)
#388 – Chase Utley (Phillies)
#199 – Felix Hernandex (Mariners)
#72 – Mark Loretta (Astros)
#129 – Mike Sweeney (Royals)
#494 – Carlos Beltran (Mets Team Checklist)
#51 – Brian Roberts (Orioles)
#SP-MT – Mark Teixeira (Rangers)

Pretty standard Upper Deck set.  Depending on the picture used, the player's name can be hard to read.  For some reason, I enjoyed the Dan Johnson shot.

As mentioned before, these Fat Packs came with insert cards, in this case, a set called Star Power.  They were facing out on the back of the pack, so you know who you're getting.  Jeter and Teixeira was not a bad combo to get back in 2007.  Here's the fronts and backs of the inserts:


Here's a checklist of the 50-card Star Power insert set for those inquiring minds.

Anyway, that's the pack.  Enjoy the rest of the week.  More later...thanks for reading!
