2x 2010 Upper Deck Blasters...

Well, Thanx to Some Dropped Frames, And An Off Brand DV Tape, The Video Was, For Lack Of A Better Term, A Bust... So, Instead of Accepting Defeat, Scanned All The Inserts, And Compiled Them Into Video Form. Oh, And I Got A Lot of The Base Cards I Need For The Set.

So, here they are...

2011 Allen & Ginter Blaster

This Was Another Purchase Made When I Went For Top Loaders. There Were About 10 Fresh Blasters, So I picked one up.

2009 SP Blaster

Pretty Self Explanatory. I Stopped by The Card Aisle To pick up Some Top Loaders, And Ended up Spending 10X The Amount I Intended on Spending... Why? Because This Was Twelve bucks, And They Had A Fresh Stock Of Ginter Blasters As Well...More Videos To Come.

Card Company Cameo

While Sitting Around, Watching The Cardinals Game (Cards Won 2-0), I Decided To Sort Through Some Stacks Of Card That I Have Been Meaning To Get Around To For A While. While Going Through A Stack Of Recently Opened 2009 Upper Deck Jumbos That A Friend Gave Me, I Came Across A Card Of Michael Cuddyer, Signing Autographs.
It's Fairly Common To See A Card With A Player Doing Something Besides Playing Baseball, But This one Caught my Attention For Another Reason.


On This Particular Card, Michael Cuddyer Is Seen Handing Back A Card To A Fan. I know What you're Thinking, "A Baseball Player Signing A Baseball Card, What's the Big Deal?" And That's What I Thought Too, Until i Took A Closer look.


That Doesn't look Like An Upper Deck Card. And In Fact, it's not. After A little research, i Managed to Find A picture of the card in the card, No, I'm not Talking About Rip Cards Here.

I hit up Check Out My Cards And Started Searching , by year, For All Micheal Cuddyer Cards. (Thank God there Wasn't Too Many!) And ended up finding this...


That's Right. It's A 2004 Topps Card, On A 2009 Upper Deck Card. Hence The Name of the post, "Card Company Cameo." Just Thought this Was interesting. I've Heard Stories of Athletes not Being Able To Sign A Certain companies product, Because they Have A Deal Of Some Sort With A Rival Company.
it Makes you Wonder if Topps would Let A picture Of An upper Deck Card Make it into Their product? i Don't Think So. But, i highly Doubt That they Would go through the trouble to figure out if it was their card or not. They Would Just Superimpose A Mantle Card in his hand, and super short print it.

1999 Upper Deck Powerdeck.

For Those Of You Who Have Never Seen Any Of These, Here Is What The 1999 Upper Deck Powerdeck CD "Cards" Contain. I Didn't Manage To Get All Of The Audio, And To Be honest With You, I Didn't Try To Hard. Just Wanted To Give People A Quality Example Of What This Crap Was All About.

The CD Content Was Made With Macromedia, So you Could Probably Pull It Into MX2004 Or Some Other Flash Program, And "Update"It, And While That Sounds Fun, I Don't Care That Much...

I Still Need A Few of These To Finish the Cd-Rom Set. So If you Got Some, And Want To Work Something out, Just Let me know.
