2009 UD Piece of History Box Break Review Part 1

2009 Upper Deck A Piece of History Baseball Hobby Box - Click Image to Close

Hey guys, Drew back here, I'm going to do a little more work on the blog today but first, part 1 of my Piece of History Christmas break! This box was a bit of a downer, but you have good boxes and bad boxes. I did get 1 card I really wanted though so I'm happy. I'm still debating if I should collect the set or not, because I still need quite a few from 2008. Hopefully that changes a week from yesterday! Anyway, here is my break of Piece of History, but first, the product information:

- 16 Packs Per Box
- 7 Cards Per Pack
- 112 Cards Per Box
- 1 MLB game used, 1 Rookie Autograph, and 1 Hollywood Memorabilia card per box!

The base set is 200 cards, the 1st 100 devoted to today's MLB stars, the next 50 for 2009 rookies, and the last 50 for Historical Moments in our world. There are many numbered parallels inserted in the box, but there are also a ton of 20th Anniversary insert garbos. The part that makes this set unique is the Hollywood Memorabilia card. You will be able to possibly obtain memorabilia from stars like Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, and many more. Here is what I pulled in my box:

Well, overall this box was a bit of a downer, everything except the Josh Hamilton, Adam Sandler, and Yanks are for trade. I really like the design of the Hamilton, so I think I'm gonna hang on to it right now, maybe for future TTM. The Sandler was an awesome pull, because he is my favorite actor and I would've bought or traded for it soon anyway, so it's nice to pull it. It's got some dinged corners, which kinda sucks but the design sucks anyway so it's no biggie. I have had great luck with the movie memorabilia cards from 2008 and 2009 though, I had 4 from last year but traded 2, still have my Superman cape and my Brad Pitt shirt, and of course the Sandler is the next one in that club. Alright, check out the video highlights below to see pictures of the cards, but for now, See Ya!
