Armour For Sale

Armour For Sale, I hadn't bought any new product in a while but I was standing in line at Walmart and I noticed something a little different on the shelf. The Blaster that leaped off the shelf was a 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes box. Upon further review I saw the Ginter's, Armour results, Chromes, Armour used for, Upper Decks ect that I am accustomed to seeing. But what made me zero in on a product I had no interest in?


 


I have an interest in marketing partly because of my day job and also because of my hobbies on the internet, online buy Armour without a prescription. Part of a good marketing plan is the packaging of the product. The packaging and the price point are why I bought this blaster box of 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes, Armour For Sale. Herbal Armour, First of all the colors were bright, but the thing that drew me in was the left front corners of the box. The left corner was rounded and I thought at first that all of the boxes were bent, kjøpe Armour på nett, köpa Armour online. I got to looking and several of the Upper Deck products had this same rounded corner touting the “Bonus Packs” inside. Armour class, I never really consider these so called Bonus Packs as actual Bonuses, I just look at them the same as I would a 24 or 36 pack hobby box, I get X number of packs with X number of cards in them for X dollars, Armour australia, uk, us, usa. The last thing that made me pick up this box over the Ginter was it was priced differently at $14.99 instead of the usual $9.99 or $19.99.


 


Armour For Sale, Okay, enough about marketing lets rip some packs:


 


Pack One


 



  • Prince Fielder




  • Pat Burrell




  • Dontrelle Willis




  • Johnny Bench/Ivan Rodriguez




  • Don Mattingly




Alright, a Pudge and a Mattingly in the same pack. It seems like I have pulled more Pat Burrell cards in my life than any other player out of a pack. Buy Armour from canada, I'm sure thats not correct but I just get tired of getting this guy.


 


Pack Two


 



  • Ben Sheets




  • Ian Kennedy Rookie




  • Griffey Jr., Clemente, Vlad and Joe D




  • Jacoby Ellsbury




  • Jeff Francoeur




I wish the multiple player cards used bigger photos, smaller logos and type, Armour maximum dosage. It makes that card of Clement, Armour schedule, Jr, Vlad and DiMaggio look like an advertising card. The back of the card says a Quartet of Dazzling Outfield Defenders, Armour alternatives, when I think defensive outfielders I don't think about Vladimir Guerrero. When I think of Vlad I just think about how he pummels my Rangers.


 


Pack Three


 



  • Joba Chamberlain




  • Roy Oswalt




  • Felix Hernandez




  • Jeff Francis




  • Andrew Miller




A whole pack of Pitchers, huh, Armour For Sale. Order Armour online c.o.d,


 


Pack Four


 



  • Mike Schmidt




  • Robin Yount




  • Derek Jeter/Jose Reyes




  • Yogi Berra YSL 1879




  • Vernon Wells




This was a pretty nice pack. Canada, mexico, india, I wish they had used a pic of Scmidt in the powder blues though. Yount is one of my All Time Favorites.


 


Pack Five


 



  • Scott Rolen




  • Ryan Braun




  • Al Kaline




  • Jimmy Rollins




  • Don Mattingly/Wade Boggs




The Mattingly/Boggs card is as it should be with Boggs in a Red Sox uniform.


 


Pack Six


 



  • Victor Martinez




  • Carlos Lee




  • Mike Schmidt/Ernie Banks/Frank Robinson




  • B.J. Upton




  • Alfonso Soriano




Here we go with the little head shots again, this time you can barely see the powder blue on the Schmidt. Armour For Sale, I love that old Orioles logo. The chest protector that Victor Martinez is wearing looks like a life vest.


 


Pack Seven


 



  • Matt Cain




  • Mattingly/Boggs Dual Jersey Relic 082/125




  • Jermaine Dye




Only three cards in this one but what a sweet pull on the Mattingly/Boggs Dual Jersey. Rx free Armour, The Mattingly features the famous Yankee Pinstripe. The boggs is from the road gray jersey. Do you have to touch your Jersey Swatches when you pull them, Armour pics, I do.


 


Pack Eight


 



  • Chris Carpenter




  • Daisuke Matsuzaka




  • Carlos Zambrano




  • Allie Reynolds YSL 1904




  • Greg Maddux




Back to reality with this pack. But still some nice cards nonetheless, Armour For Sale.


 


Pack Nine


 



  • Lance Berkman




  • Chad Billingsley




  • Brian Roberts




  • Magglio Ordonez 145/299




  • John Maine




 


What a great box this turned out to be. I got some of my All Time Favorite Players and a dual jersey relic of Don Mattingly and Wade Boggs. If it would have been Mattingly and Nettles for example I would have to take off work and go get the rest of the blasters. But hey, Boggs was a great player I just didn't have a connection with him.


 


Armour For Sale, The 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes design is nothing to write home about. I didn't really like the design when they were introduced in the nineties either. They really should have worked on the multi player cards more though, way to much dead area and attention to things that matter less than the pictures. The player selection in my box was great. Of the 43 cards that were in my box I ended up with 8 cards that I will keep. The rest of the cards will go up for sale on Sportlots or in trade to someone.


 


By the way I kind of ignored the color variations for the Parallels.

    Nice break! I still haven’t found any of these blasters but will try to get 2-3 when I see them!

  2. Andy Says:

    We want bigger scans on your blog…especially of Mattingly cards!

  3. Chris Says:

    To see Mattingly and Boggs pulled from packs brings me back to my collecting heyday. Wow! That Allie Reynolds card would intrigue me. As a Yankee fan this box would have been a great thing, Mattingly, Boggs, Joba, Ian, Allie Reynolds and Joe DiMaggio! You’re making me wish I could rip into some packs right now. Great find.

  4. tribecards Says:

    And I thought I was the only one that felt the swatches on the cards… Glad to know I am not alone!

  5. jv Says:

    Do these come with a guaranteed relic per box? It seems that most all of UDs stuff this year has had one definite relic in each one.

    Just curious…

  6. Joey Says:

    Hey David, thanks for letting me know I am not the only oddball that has to touch the swatch. At least now we know there are two of us out there.

    JV, I don’t think there is a guaranteed relic per box of UD Heroes. There was no mention of it on the packaging, nor were there any odds posted of any kind. I think I just beat the odds on that box.

  7. Joey Says:

    Mario, yep I was pleased with this box. I hope you find some down in Florida.

    Andy, I’ll see what I can do about the scans. I am looking for a new blog theme so I may wait till I find one before I enlarge the scans. Thanks for the input.

    Chris, That was a Yankee hot box, I didn’t really realize just how dominate the Yanks were in the box until you pointed it out.

  8. Spiff Says:

    Always touch the swatches, when I am lucky enough to pull a game-used. I would have liked to get a blaster of these cards. I got the Josh Hamilton beige version as a single and liked it. Your review just made me want a blaster more.

  9. Cliff Walk Says:

    I just picked up a blaster of these this morning. I wish I had bought two. The boxes are only $15 each. I didn’t get a game used but I’d have touched the swatch if I had.

  10. Chris Says:

    Thanks to this post I have been scouring Wal-Marts, Targets, and K-Marts in two states for this type of box and can’t find any. I did come across a Football Heroes box in a 7-11 in NJ but I passed on it as I was more interested in getting my cherry slurpee and going back to watch some College Football at my girlfriends house. Besides, baseball jerseys seem to have a much better texture and feel for the cards.

  11. dayf Says:

    Wow, your box was much better than mine. This is nice stuff though, great Mattingly hit!

  12. Joey Says:

    Spiff, glad to have you in the club.

    Cliff, welcome to the touch the swatch club.

    Chris, I agree with you on the jersey textures. I can’t remember the last time I had a Slurpee, I liked the Coke flavored best.

    Dayf, I wish now I had bought the other boxes. But that is the same mentality the Casinos count on.

  13. Cliff Walk Says:

    My daughter went over to WalMart this afternoon so I had her buy me another box. She did good, there was a jersey in the box. I got Angel’s pitcher John Lackey. I don’t have the inserts scoped out on this yet. I know there are different colored cards and some of them are serial numbered. The jersey card is numbered to 200.

  14. Joey Says:

    Cliff, does that make two blasters now that you have bought? I am still trying to get an idea of the insertion rates for the retail product.

  15. Lonestarr Says:

    I had a lot of Yankees in my blaster too. I counted 7 (Jeter black, A-Rod/Jeter/Cano black, Willie Randolph YSL, Don Baylor YSL, Clemens regular, A-Rod regular, and Yogi/Reggie/Joe D/Jeter regular), and the black parallel in the single pack from the day before was a Yogi.

  16. Joey Says:

    Hey Lonestarr, thanks for stopping by. Someone suggested to me that I should get more Yankees because they print a lot of Yankee cards especially in issues that are loaded with retired players. What do you think about that statement?

  17. Chris Says:

    I recently plucked a few individual cards from some e-stores. I was almost hoping for that old school Upper Deck card, circa 1991 or 1992 when they first introduced the heroes collection. This gloss seems to be layered on pretty good. I am not a fan of glossy cards because I like to send a lot them out to get autographed through the mail. However, they are great cards and I couldn’t resist gobbling up a few Yankees. Man, they ARE all over this set. I guess it is because Yankees sell, and they have a lot of history and great players. I know I still get some goose bumps when Joe DiMaggio or Lou Gehrig or Babe Ruth are part of a pack pull.

    [...] bought a box of Baseball Heroes when it came out and ended up with a nice pull. I was really happy with that box, hopefully I will [...]
