Christmas Pack: 2010 Upper Deck Hobby

Anyone who has ordered anything from Dave and Adam's Card World for more than $75, knows what this pack means.  When you order that much from them, they include bonus packs or boxes.  Since my Father-in-law got me two hobby boxes for Christmas, I got a bonus 2010 Upper Deck pack.  That means this is the last post before I start posting my big Christmas presents: Hobby Boxes of 2008 UD Masterpieces and 2009 UD A Piece of History.  I only opened one other pack of 2010 Upper Deck, so I was excited to see what the hobby pack had to offer.

Base: Ryan Franklin, David Ortiz, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Ervin Santana, Glen Perkins, Chris Iannetta, JP Howell, Mitch Stetter, Adam Kennedy, Koji Uehara, Zach Duke, Taylor Teagarden, Clay Buchholz, Luis Perdomo, David DeJesus
>>> Nothing special to talk about here. 

Yankee Stadium Ballparks
>>> I like the ballparks set in 2010 UD, it never gets old paying tribute to the great buildings of baseball.

Carlos Zambrano Portrait
>>> The portraits cards seem really bland to me.  I could live without a bad picture of an angry man.

Ryan Howard Biography
>>> The Biography inserts are a good way for UD to add substance to the set without a license.  Ryan Howard lit up Shairon Martis in this episode.

Adrian Gonzalez Biography
>>> Adrian Gonzalez goes 6 for 6.  That's ridicutardedly good. 

Hanley Ramirez Baseball Heroes 20th Anniversary
>>> These are great looking cards.  The layout begs for an autograph, though.


































I have to say I think 2010 UD turned out pretty good for an unlicensed set.  But, who am I to judge card designs.  After all, I'm just a collector. 

Well, that does it for the random Christmas packs.  Next up is the hobby boxes, so be on the lookout.  Don't forget to vote on the sidebar for the random packs you most want to see in the future.

How can I vote on the right? You didn't include more Bieber packs!!
On a more serious note, three years back, I had the opportunity to see two ballparks (at least from the outside) on my way north.
The Brewers Stadium is an awesome sight when you pass it on the highway. And the architecture of Lambeu Field is out of this world.
And you are correct, that Howard card just sceams out for an auto.
