The Platter busted a very sweet box of 2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces. This was one of the better boxes that I have ever broke. The quality of the base cards and the classy beauty of the framed parallels. This set is pure class. Opening packs of these cards makes you a little sad that Upper Deck is out of the baseball business. The price that this box cost was a key selling point in picking up this box. Masterpieces is such high quality that for the price that I got it for, I may buy another.
When you open a box and even the base cards are impressive, then you know you have some gold. The base set only has 90 cards. But, the set has a good mix of stars and legends. The framed parallel cards are divided up by colors. Some of the framed cards are numbered.
Baseball Card Pedia. Is this Schilling the color called Hedes? How about Ionized? I don't remember these colors in a Crayola box.
The detail that went into making each card is amazing. The colors look great and the selection of which photos to paint is very well done. Each card is cool to look at. Please come back Masterpieces!!!
As far as what I consider to be "my generation" of ball players, I consider the years to be 90s to current. Also, with the huge steroid cloud hanging over a lot of the sluggers that I grew up watching and enjoying. Griffey is probably the MVP hitter of my generation. So, in order to fully rep my great years, then I should try and pick up a Griffey auto.
I can not stop raving about how kick ass this box was. This is just the beginning my friends. My next post will show even more of the joys from this box. All the cards that are pictured above are for trade. Please comment or email me if your interested.
