2008 UD Masterpieces Box Break Part 1

2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces Baseball Hobby Box - Click Image to Close

Hey guys, Drew back here. For my birthday, I decided to pick out 3 boxes to break. I ended up with 4, but I'll get to that eventually. The cheapest one was 2008 UD Masterpieces, so I'll share that with you now. But first, the product info...

12 Packs Per Box
6 Cards Per Pack
72 Cards Per Box
4 Yankee Stadium Legacies
6 Short Prints Per Box
1 Game Used Jersey Card Per Box
1 On Card Autograph Per Box

Let's get rippin!


Base Set: 56/90 (1 double: Ryne Sandberg)

- The base from Masterpieces are truly Masterpieces, the canvas feel makes the cards one of the best sets, in my opinion, ever. EVER. I think 2007 got it beat a little on the player selection but 2008 is awesome too.

Short Prints: 6/30 (Sandberg, Griffey Jr, DiMaggio, Berra, Schmidt, Musial)

- Great cards of awesome players. I don't know if I'm gonna attempt this set though after my troubles with Goudey.

Yankee Stadium Legacies: 4/7,000,000,000,000,000,000

- Very boring set at this point, even as a Yankee fan. But I do like the Yogi and the WWII one.

Black Parallels: 4/120 (Pence, Howard, Harden, N. Ryan SP)

- These are so nice, even nicer than the base cards I must say. We pulled a Short Print Black Border of Nolan Ryan also, and it looks amazing. The Harden and Pence are definitely for trade, make me a good offer if you want the others.

Red Parallel: 1 (Jake Peavy)
Blue Parallel /125: Max Scherzer RC (003/125)

- More true greatness, the blue kinda looks really similar to the black unless you look close. The red, well, what do you think, it sticks out a ton, and looks pretty nice!

Game Used: #CC-EC Eric Chavez

- So, I have a funny story to tell ya. So I was opening this box of 2008 Masterpieces, and it was all nice and stuff, until I opened a pack up to find this piece of material, that Eric Chavez wore in an MLB game. Last time I checked this could be anything, maybe, ya know, couch worn pajamas while wearing a full body cast watching baseball on the sidelines? Ok, my rant is done. Point is, this hit is DEFINITELY FOR TRADE! Moving on.

Autograph: #SG-XN Xavier Nady

- We conclude this box break with an autograph signed by former Yankee Xavier Nady. Not an awesome hit but I'll certainly take it for the Yankees collection! He has a really cool auto, and the card is very nice.

The grades are being worked on now, and they will be posted tomorrow! See Ya!


  1. Hey Drew- need that Pence for my collection. Shoot me an email, I'll find you something cool of the Yanks variety.

  2. Couch worn pajamas = priceless. Great post buddy.

  3. I have a ton of doubles from both the 07 and 08 set. If you want them you can have them.i'll send a care package. From one Robinson Cano collector to another
