2008 Upper Deck First Edition Update

   Hello all. We continue through the repack box with an offering from Upper Deck from 08. First Edition was their answer to Topps Opening Day in the lower priced simple set and took it one step further by adding an update set.

2008 Upper Deck First Edition Update

#359 Edgar Renteria (Tigers)
#386 James Loney (Dodgers)
#397 Eric Gagne (Brewers)

#341 Aaron Harang (Reds)
#368 Miguel Tejada (Astros)
#473 Troy Glaus (Cardinals)

#339 Alexei Ramirez RC (White Sox)
#418 Ramon Castro (Mets)
#472 Skip Shumaker (Cardinals)

#SQ-60 Starquest (Common) Vladimir Guerrero (Angels)

The backs.

Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 9
Rookie Cards:
1 (Ramirez)
Sub Sets:
1 (Starquest, as promised)
Keepers for Me:
 2 (Vlad, Castro)

Front Design: 6.5 out of 10 Good pictures, all action shots, plain design, no foil,  no team logo.
Back Design:
 8.5 out of 10 Nice design, team logo, good player info and factoid, full career stats, player picture.
Player Selection:
7 out of 10
Good, all relevant players.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: Sacrifice  Fly Out  to center field.  Only 20% keepers and a plain front puts an out in the book but the great backs and Vlad insert moves the runner from second to third.

Don't forget to leave your rating below and feel free to comment your thoughts on the pack.

Thanks For Reading!

  1. Rameriz's did not get a rookie card in almost all of Topps brands in 2008.
