This box came cheaply, and was fun to bust. I can't really say much for the base set, as it's pretty bland; certainly not as nice as the 2008 base set. In my opinion, Sweet Spot is on the lower end of the mid-range product scale, and should have a base set that at least feels somewhat special. I know this product isn't really about the base cards, but the '08 version spoiled me with it's baseball stitch embossing, and gold foil. I have a whole stack of base cards, so if you're looking for a particular player, gimme a shout and I'll see what I've got.
The actual box has been thrown out, so I can't look at it to be positive, but I think it was 5 cards per pack, 12 packs per box.
Anyhoo, here's some cards:
It was tough to pick a favorite base cared, so I decided to just pick Ichiro. They're all action shots, and they're all basically the same. He was the only guy with just one name, so I figured "why not".
I was pretty psyched about this one. When I opened the pack, this card was on the bottom, and I happened to see that it was a Phillie, before flipping the cards over to thumb through the pack. All the while I was hoping for Howard, but I'm not disappointed by who I ended up with.
All in all, a nice break. The Chutley auto is a good pull for me. It might not be low numbered, and his signature may be illegible, but at least it's of a star player. I'm normally not that lucky.
