1. 2008 Upper Deck USA Baseball Factory Sets
These sets are a big hit every year and this being Upper Deck’s first crack at producing the product hasn’t slowed them down. Each set produces 7 auto’s and 2 game used on average of players from the 2007 USA National Baseball Teams. Collectors can’t go wrong with these sets delivering the amount of hits they do.
2. 2008 Playoff Prestige Football Hobby Box
Playoff Prestige Football stays hot as collectors are really enjoying this product. The usual rookie suspects are leading this product – Darren McFadden, Matt Ryan, and Rashard Mendenhall among others.
3. 2008 Upper Deck SP Legendary Cuts Baseball Hobby Box
This product doesn’t release until next week and it is already generating a lot of buzz. Each 16 box case contains (2) 8 count inner cases…each containing 1 cut signature card. There is also 1 Mystery Cut Card in Each 16 box case, bringing the total to 3 cut signatures per case.
4. 2008 Just Minors Mystery Jersey Baseball
They’ve had bats, they’ve had balls…. now Just Minors knocks one out of the park with Mystery Jersey Baseball. Each box produces 1 autograph jersey with a game-used auto jersey falling 1 in 60 boxes. This product is sold out direct from Just Minors so availability is limited.
With the Penguins still alive in the Stanley Cup (Entering Game 6 Tonight in Pittsburgh) Sidney Crosby cards are sizzling. This playoff run has really heated up 2005/06 Hockey Products containing Sid the Kid rookie cards. It certainly doesn’t hurt that these products also contain Alexander Ovechkin rookies which jumped in price towards the end of the regular season.

I enjoy all the SP Authentic series in football, hockey and basketball. That’s a great product. I like it when you guys do that for a boxbreak. Especially since I can possibly win them! lol
