    Newbie break... LMK what you think

    Hi all! I've been trying to get my BF into collecting and he is a baseball fan so I bought him a box of 08 UD Series 2 1/2 off at Kmart-- just something small to spark his interest. He asked me to post it up and tell him how he did, so here are his hits:

    UD Jersey David Ortiz (books for $10 but not such a great season :( )

    RCs:
    Brian Bocock
    Alex Romero
    Matt Tupman
    Denard Span

    Season Highlights:
    Kevin Youkilis
    Johan Santana
    Jake Peavy
    CC Sabathia
    Jose Reyes
    John Lackey

    Superstar Scrapbooks:
    A Rod
    Chase Utley

    USA Baseball 2007 Junior Team Tyler Hibbs

    Yankee Stadium Legacy:
    Yogi Berra YSL 2945
    Tony Kubek YSL 2970

    Starquest:
    Commons- Randy Johnson, Russell Martin, Felix Hernandez, Jeff Francoeur, Cole Hamels

    Uncommons: Vernon Wells, Derrek Lee

    Rare: Derrek Lee

    Super Rare: Felix Hernandez

    Ultra Rare: Ken Griffey Jr. (there is a scratch off thing on the back-- what are these cards for? And are they worth anything?)

    So there it is :)

    Can you guys help him out and let him know how he did? I believe he will trade these, thanks guys!

    Heather

    Well it wasn't a GREAT box, but thats what you have to expect from retail. Not terrible as no matter how bad Papi plays, he is a Sox, and the nation will have some interests in it. Span in my opinion is a good rookie to get. I think he'll have some big years in Minnesota. The Berra Stadium Legacy is a good one since they pretty much made every yankee in those cards, so the bigger the name the better. You gotta take him to the card store, show him all the singles and the things you can pull, then he'll probably get into it haha. UD series are pretty much loaded with base, but its a good place to start.

    Thanks for the feedback :) from what I can tell, he is definitely more into just getting nice base than the inserts, etc. But that is as of right now, who knows after we go to the LCS

    Thanks,

    Heather

    BTW, do you know what the deal is with the Starquest cards?

    I think they are codes that you can enter into the website. I'm not really sure what you can get for it to be honest haha, never really looked. But from what I am looking at now, it might be some game you can play on upper deck kids website

    Would have been good for me...

    I would have loved this box if I busted it. Just for the Papi GU. If you want to trade anything out of this stuff, I would be interested in these two...

    UD Jersey David Ortiz
    Season Highlights: Kevin Youkilis

    Send me a PM if you have any interest and LMK what you might need in return.

    I collect Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and UNH Hockey and Football Players (Base/Inserts/GU/AU)
    My PC NFT is exactly that, Not For Trade! It is for show only. So, please don't ask!
    I unfortunately can no longer afford to trade outside of the US. Even Canada rates are way too high!
