Last week we spotlighted a football product. This week we are taking a look at a baseball product from 2007. 2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces Baseball has been a very popular seller over the last few years.
The cards look amazing in this set. Here is a picture of a Jeter Parallel:
The canvas/painting look is pretty sweet. With all the different parallels, there are a lot of set builders out there. So, that definitely helps. The jersey cards are on the same type of painted looking card too.
The autographs are my favorite part of the set. They are all signed on card and they look absolutely awesome. Here are a few from the set:
Now the one bad thing is that all the redemption cards are expired. And Upper Deck won’t help you in the least. They actually kind of mock people who try and redeem these expired redemption cards. Shame on them for being jerks about it. But, that’s a different topic for a different article. There aren’t a ton of redemption cards in this product. However, if you open 4-5 boxes, you have a decent shot at hitting one.
The good news is that the boxes are on sale for $38.99 right now. This product had an original factory cost of about $85. So, it’s dropped well more than 50% since its release. It has seemed to level off around $40 though, as it’s been there for about a year.
You also get a box-topper every box. These are 5×7 cards that are beautiful looking. If you’re an autograph hound, these cards are fantastic to try and get signed.
So, in every box you get 3 Jersey Cards, 1 Autograph Card, 1 Box Topper and several parallel cards. Not bad at all for the price.
At $40 it’s a fun and pretty cheap break. There aren’t any monster hits in this product, but it’s a super nice looking set with some potential for decent autographs. The 2007 Rookies were pretty solid with Tim Lincecum,Troy Tulowitzki and more. All-in-all, not a bad product to open a few boxes of for fun.
Here is a video break of a box to take a look at:
