Yesterday, I talked about my recent Check Out My Cards purchase and I showed off the first card (out of the 24 total cards that I ordered). That card happened to be from the 2008 UD Timelines set - a set that I'm still working on.
Today, I'm pleased to show off two more cards from a set from 2008, though this time they are the final two cards that I needed! The set in question? None other than the gorgeous 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces.
My final two cards that I needed to complete my set were both short prints (because of course they were). The first was Joe DiMaggio.
That's a pretty nice action shot of DiMaggio - and despite this set quickly approaching being a decade old, I think I like it as much now as I did back in '08 when I decided to collect the entire thing. That's kind of amazing because I often find my love a set wanes fairly quickly if the set sits on my want list for too long!
The last card that I needed ended up being one of my favorites in the set - a Roberto Clemente short print.
There's something about the black and yellow jersey that looks good to me here (maybe it's because I'm a Steelers fan). Or, perhaps it's because this is it - I'm done with 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces once and for all!
That's now 3 of the 24 cards that I've shown off...I'll have more from my purchase soon. And yes, I know I'm dragging things out a bit here - but frankly I think each set deserves its own chance to shine!
