When you hear words like sticker dump and non- license associated with UD World of Sports, most collectors would be wary of such a product. But curiosity got the best of me and in fact I may be the only blogger to have bought a box and lucky I did (cue the foreshadow!!).
The World of Sports is a whole hodgepodge of athletes ranging from lacrosse, to figure skating to basketball to of course MMA. I honestly don’t know maybe 70% of the people on the checklist and it would really suck if I pulled a bunch of no name prospects or a bunch of lacrosse guys. Basically, it is a coin flip to get something you want. Also I think this type of product might work better during the Olympics where a huge array of sports are being showcased but hey that is just me.
Here is some of people I actually recognize
and here is a bunch of base to show you the range of the sports represented.
Each box is guaranteed 2 autographs, 1 memorabilia card and 1 Clear Competitors card but from the box breaks I seen, more hits seem to be the norm. My hits kind of sucked up until second to the last pack (again cue the foreshadow).
Stanley Robinson Autograph. Robinson to my knowledge has not play a single NBA game yet.
Mat Hoffman Autograph. No idea who he is but my friend said he a pretty big deal in the extreme sports world.
Russell Westbrook Mem Card. There are a ton so lacrosse mem cards and I am so glad I didn’t pull one.
Jim Boeheim Clear Competitor 286/550
and with the second to last pack of the box I pulled a freakin’ LeBron James and Michael Jordan dual autograph!!!! Like OMG!!!
I am literally still jumping up and down as I write this (making it kind of hard to type). I was going to write a full review but all I can think of is the LeBron James and Michael Jordan dual autograph!!!!
(BTW the Ray in this post on the Blowout Cards Forums is me!)
Oh, one thing before I go. Don’t forget to send in the box tops to Upper Deck for a chance at a Michael Jordan & Tiger Woods dual autograph. Wouldn’t be insane if I won that too!!! Also I have been saving the wrappers just in case Upper Deck decides to do a wrapper redemption. I have been burned way too many times in the past. Actually I going to make it common practice to just save all my wrappers for a year or so just in case.
