Random Pack Break: 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Series One & 2012-13 Panini Absolute Basketball

I was doing some holiday shopping and this rack pack of 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Series One Rookie Edition and this rack pack of 2012-13 Panini Absolute Basketball were on sale for $2.99 so I’m in and here we are.

I think I needed the Chin-Lung Hu Rookie Debut insert (which may be a rack pack exclusive) from the pack of 2008 UD Baseball but other than that, I didn’t really get much. But wow 2008 seems like a lifetime ago with players like Orlando Hernandez on the Mets.

The cards from the Panini rack pack look a lot more interesting than the “simpler is better” Upper Deck design. The Karl Marlone All-Stars inserts is definitely a rack pack exclusive. I also pulled a nice shiny Carmelo Anthony card and the player the Knicks gave up to acquire him, Danilo Gallinari but not much else for my collection.
