These damn UD Masterpieces cards...they are an evil weakness.
I've been a sucker for the "art" cards for a long time now. My displaying the Killebrew card that finished the 2002 Topps Gallery set for me should have been a dead giveaway. Oh yea, I posted it twice.
Well, during a fit of boredom on the weekend, I typed in the search box on eBay "2008 UD Masterpieces Jersey". A very nice list of cards flashed on the screen in front of me. My cheapness always gets the better of me, so I had to scroll for a while until I found this card:
|Texas Rangers helmet, but plays for the Braves!!|
It's an illness, I swear it to you.
This is the 5th one that I have. There's 84 more to complete the set.
With all the damn old sets I've started over the years, why have I all of a sudden become addicted to these cards! If I could find a bunch of them at 99 cents apiece, yea I would go for this set. But with names like Ryan (twice), Pujols, Rodriguez, Gwynn, Berra to name a few, the 99 cent price is just a dream.
For a guy who doesn't collect insert/jersey "sets", these cards have me all messed up.
