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.
#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.
#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!
