Flashback Friday: An Unopened Pack of Goudey!

When I was cleaning out some stuff in my man cave, I stumbled upon an unopened pack of 2008 Goudey.  I set the pack aside (since I'm still working on the set) and then promptly forgot about the pack again...

...flash forward about a year and I uncovered the pack for a second time - and this time I'm going to rip it open.  Who knows, I might even get a card I need out of it!

The pack wrapper says to look for Sports Royalty autographs.  Wouldn't it be cool if this long lost pack actually held something amazing?  Only one way to find out!

2008 Upper Deck Goudey:

20.  Jeremy Guthrie
61.  Victor Martinez
72.  Magglio Ordonez
87.  Luke Hochevar
98.  Andruw Jones
113.  Glen Perkins
150.  Ralph Kiner
165.  Ichiro

*sigh*  It was a long shot to get a short print or insert that I needed, but I couldn't help but be hopeful!  Oh well, on the bright side I now have eight more cards to use as trade bait...and ripping a pack of baseball cards is never a bad thing (even if they are all duplicates)!

As long as no one else speaks up for them I'll take them all (except for the Victor Martinez).

I LOVE 08 Goudey. I need to grab a box of this to rip.

Nice. One of the last good UD baseball sets.
