I opened a new box of 2009 Upper Deck Series 2 today and I have to admit I was happy with what I got. I don't often like Upper Deck Series 1 and 2 but this year they seem to have gotten it right.
I received a Nolan Ryan Timeless Teams Buyback game used bat, a Stephen Strasburg USA autograph/jersey numbered to 225 and a 2009 Upper Deck 20th Anniversary jersey of Peyton Manning which is only found 1 per case.
I got 2 20th Anniversary Tiger Woods cards as well as a Mark Teixeira and Jay Bruce O-Pee-Chee cards.
The photography is excellent with lots of great action shots.
The price is in the $65 range and you will get a good deal if you purchase a box.
