2007 Upper Deck Series 1 & 2 Combo Pack


Hope everyone is doing well.  I am (unfortunately) wrapping up my week off (use those PTO days or lose them) and of course, all the things I had planned to do haven't been done yet.  For example, this post...wanted to put something up at the beginning of the week, and here I am doing it today.  Geez.  Not only that, but these scans have been sitting in the Scan folder the longest!  Talk about lazy!  AND, it's from a set we've seen 5 times on the site.  Go ahead, look it up on the right.  Such a disappointment.  Oh well, it's a 2007 Upper Deck Series 1 & 2 Combo Pack!

So Upper Deck had this great idea of sticking 30 cards from the two series into a fat pack.  After all, they had over 1000 cards to choose from.  A THOUSAND CARDS!!!!!!!  And as for a gimmick, all UD had to do is create an exclusive insert set.  Well, it was enough for me to get a pack off the clearance rack at some point.

I didn't scan all the cards since we've all seen them before (and if you haven't, you have 4 other chances on this site alone), so here's what I got:

Top Pack
#20 – Jose Diaz (Royals RC)
#44 – Shawn Riggans (Devil Rays RC)
#32 – Sean Henn (Yankees RC)
#82 – Rob Mackowiak (White Sox)

#270 – John Smoltz (Braves)
#390 – Chris Coste (Phillies)
#121 – Mark Teahen (Royals)
#254 – Carlos Quentin (Diamondbacks)
#451 – Chris Carpenter (Cardinals)
#325 – Dontrelle Willis (Marlins)
#264 – Willy Aybar (Braves)
#207 – Ty Wigginton (Devil Rays)
#129 – Mike Sweeney (Royals)
#494 – Carlos Beltran (Mets Team Checklist)
#TP-KG – Ken Griffey, Jr. (Reds)

Bottom Pack
#719 – Roy Oswalt (Astros)
#639 – Jeff Conine (Reds)
#575 – Hideki Okajima (Red Sox RC)
#860 – Adam Melhuse (Athletics)
#710 – Lee Gardner (Marlins RC)

#1016 – Christian Guzman (Nationals)
#604 – Cliff Floyd (Cubs)
#851 – Jason Giambi (Yankees Team Checklist)
#TP-GS – Grady Sizemore (Indians)

Here are some of the cards and a back for you:


And here's the Triple Play inserts.  You could see the card on the back of the pack, so yes, I got this pack for the Griffey:

Anyway, that's the pack.  Enjoy the weekend, and thanks for reading!
