Flashback Friday! Getting More than Lucky?

I'm dipping into my (almost empty) pack stash for another Flashback Friday.  This time around, it's a lone pack of 2006 Upper Deck Baseball (Series 2).  I don't recall buying any Upper Deck stuff back in 2006 so the cards should be all new to me.

According to the pack wrapper, I should expect 8 cards in the pack.  There's also a chance to "get more than lucky" which sounds way creepier than I'm guessing Upper Deck intended.

986.  Mike Napoli (RC)

Alright, so the first card out of the pack is numbered in the 900s which tells me a lot about the size of the 2006 Upper Deck set!!  A Napoli rookie card is a decent start to the pack at least.

962.  Brandon Watson (RC)
576.  Matt Belisle

Look, I pulled a Reds' card out of a pack!

520.  Wilson Betemit
769.  Brian Sweeney
811.  John Rodriguez
Player Highlights: PH-25.  Brian Roberts

This insert set feels like it's actually a Topps Total card to me for reasons that I can't totally explain.

Diamond Debut:  DD-66.  Ben Johnson

Two inserts out of eight cards for a set that has at least 986 cards in it?  No thanks says the set collector in me.  The design of the base set isn't bad but I'll be passing on any sort of attempt at collecting this set.  I don't think I missed much by sitting this one out back in 2006.  Still, always fun to rip a pack of cards that's over a decade old!


  1. Nice pack, I actually built that set buying boxes and packs and singles. It was 3 series totalling 1250 cards and the last 30 were SPs - it was a beast!

    1. 1250 cards? Wowza. That's a 2 binder project.

  2. True story, I'm one of the people who have benefited from Dr. Ogbeifun Love Spell. Dr. Ogbeifun appeared in the middle of my life when all hope was lost. I gave up on life and thought the best way to care for my broken heart. I have several experiences with my husband who have been working with me for many years. I made up my mind to continue with my suicide before a strange spirit. Afterwards, Dr. Ogbeifun Temple, I reluctantly looked for and found testimonials and recommendations for him via his email. He answered and asked me to go away and take my life; he said that my case is solvable after consulting his Oracle. Well, here I am today thanking Dr. Ogbeifun for saving my life and bringing back my Husband. We are so happy today and happier than we have ever been. He also helped me stop my cardiac arrest problem. I am grateful for being among the people sharing this testimony.
