One of my all-time favorite products is available as part of Dave and Adams Bracket Buster Sale!

2007/08 Upper Deck Be a Player Portraits.

Each box contains 6 packs, with each pack containing 4 cards including one jersey card. In addition, each pack also contains one Autographed 8x10 card.

That's 6 auto 8x10s and 6 jersey cards per box. My experience has been that each box contains one dual signed 8x10, but that's not guaranteed.

The boxes are currently going for $64.95 each, until Monday.

I bought 3 boxes, and they are expected to be here Thursday.

I'll post what I get on this thread.

Steve, I think you are right, I got multiples of some of the same players on the boxes of that I bought years ago, still I think there were some nice autos in those, but they were hard to hit. Either way, good luck Brian.

My experience with Portraits has been different. While most of the players are minor, I haven's seen a lot of dupes.

As for regular Be A Player boxes and rack packs, I totally agree. Lots of duplicates there.

We'll see how these boxes go.

Good luck, Brian! I've never seen this product, so I'm curious to see how you do.

I received and busted my 3 boxes.

I was not disappointed. While there were a few dupes, they were not from the same box.

Also, in one box, I actually got 7 packs instead of 6.

The First Exposure jersey cards I got were:

Andre Kostitsyn
Brad Winchester
Brandon Bochenski
Peter Budaj
Wojtek Wolski
Johan Franzen
Cam Barker
Eric Nystrom
Ryan Suter
Jeff Tambellini
Rostislav Olez x 2
Dion Phaneuf
Daniel Paille
Mike Richards
Alexander Steen
Milan Jurcina
Alexander Perezhogin

and...



Sydney Crosby!
