My Heroes


I participated in the Group Case Break of 08 UD Heroes over at Jawdy's Basement on YouTube. This was my first time doing this with someone other than a blogger, but the results were outstanding. I traded with Jawdy (hmm, hmm, excuse me, Jordan) for the Indians, giving him the A's. It was a pretty even trade since both teams only had four players in the set. It ended up that we both got excellent pulls. I also had the Giants, which I kept in the hopes of getting a Vizquel, which I did, and a Lincecum, which I did not.

As you can see above, I got two relics, a Vizquel numbered 037/200, and a Hafner numbered 01/25. (A 1 of 1, right? Not.) Plus, the bonus tins of Sweet Spot that Jordan broke for the group break instead of keeping them for himself (they were bonuses for buying the case, I believe, and I would have had a hard time NOT keeping them to myself) yielded two more hits for me and a great hit for Jordan. Mine were the Martinez, above, numbered 435/850, and the redemption, shown below:



Sweet! No, Sweet Spot! Holy Sweet Spots, Batman! A dual-auto, red-stitch, blue-ink of Hafner and Martinez. As I said before, "SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!" And just to make sure that I didn't shaft Jordan too much for trading me the Indians, he got a signature glove part from the Sweet Spot of the A's Kurt Suzuki. I also sent him an auto of Geoff Jenkins, since he and his son, Number1Dragonoid, are big Phils Fanatics, as a Thank You.

Please check out his YouTube channel, as he is really good at this, and is very well-spoken, and it is quite humorous, especially when his son is chiming in!

thanks Dan...it was a great deal for both of us and I am thrilled that your Indians did you well! Lemme know how the redemption goes for you as I am waiting now 3 months or so for my Griffey auto from Ballpark Collection from UD.

Nice cards and great redemption. Jawdy runs an excellent break and we're looking forward to another soon.
