1991 Upper Deck Football Box

Finally decided to go for UD's first football set. Was on Steel City Collectibles for I think 15. 36 packs and 12 cards per.

Star Rookies

Found on average just about 1 rookie per pack.

Eric Bieniemy, Jarrod Bunch, Rob Carpenter, Aaron Craver x3, Mike Croel, Mike Dumas, Favre! x2, Alvin Harper x2, Greg Lewis x2, Lyght x2, Marinovich x2, Maryland, Dan McGwire, H. Moore, Browning Nagle, Bruce Pickens, Mike Pritchard, Stanley Richard, Eric Swann, E. Turner x2, Watters, Chuck Webb x2, Harvey Williams, Chris Zorich

Need 4 more, nobody big.

Inserts

Team MVP

Got 30 of these, just fewer than the rookies. Some of the notables: T. Thomas x2, Emmitt, Marino, Woodson, Rice, Rison x3

Football Heroes

All featuring Montana. Pulled 5 in total, 2 doubles

Holograms

I pulled 7. All of them, Thurman. LOL

There's also some Season Leaders, found 3 of the 6.

Not bad. It's odd to find holos of all the same guy, considering UD was already in year 3 after already having 2 baseball releases and a hockey. I'd expect collation issues like that for 89. I think I'm gonna open a high series box instead of getting a set. Might be picking that up soon. And we'll see what I report on next.

Was pretty enjoyable. I will have another that should be even more enjoyable coming up in the future. Funny how couple times I got the same Moments cards back-to-back. Thinking if I will pursue the set, got more dubs than I thought and series 2 is bit more pricey. Good looking rookie design. Have to see which football will be next.

Oh those stadium club yes! Thin bricks. Even had the hardest time ever pulling 2 cards apart, no joke. No problem with the 91s though.

1991 Upper Deck Football High Series Box

Attempt to knock out some high cards and needs from the other break. At least I get a box bottom. 36 packs and 12 cards per. Before I begin, found something interesting. Usually when I open boxes, I don't just open one stack and move on to the next. I just take one from one stack, one from another etc. This time I decided to open them by the stack, went counterclockwise. I don't know if this was typical of products back then but I noticed a pattern by the 2nd pack. So from the 1st pack, this was the layout of the cards: card 1 was number 1-100, the 2nd was 101-200 and so on for the first 7 cards. The rest of the cards followed a consecutive number sequence, either in ascending or descending order. 2-126-250-397-436-594-627-53-52-51-50-49. In the rest of the packs of the stack, the first 7 cards went in ascending or descending order from the last. In my case: down, up, up, down, up, down, down. And everytime except once, those final 5 cards in every 3 packs in a stack followed this pattern: #1-100, 400s, 400s. Couple times in a stack you were shorted a card and also you may have had an extra one, the ones with the hologram. The final pack of the first stack didn't follow suit. It seemed like the bottom pack should've been on top. The pattern didn't carry on from one stack to another. After the first stack, there were a few inconsistencies here and there. Like the top pack was out of pattern from the rest underneath. But still you can sense a pattern throughout for the most part. It was interesting to go through this. So from doing a high series break from their first basketball and hockey, I was expecting to get maybe 4 high series in each pack. This would be just 2.

Star Rookies

I was able to find all of them. Most likely a guarantee for a high series box. Fewer doubles, for rookies at least lol. The 4 I needed were Charles McRae, Wesley Carroll, Randal Hill & Nick Bell. Found doubles of Eric Bieniemy, Carroll, Mike Dumas & Lyght

Rookie Force

Exclusive to high series, around 50 of them. Dan McGwire, James Joseph x2, Harvey Williams, Browning Nagle, Alfred Williams, Leonard Russell, John Flannery, Nick Bell, William Thomas, Wesley Carroll, Darren Lewis, Bruce Pickens, Lyght, Favre!, Jake Reed

Found other rookie cards but only couple worth mentioning: Bryce Paup & Jeff Feagles

Inserts

Team MVP

Had most of them from last break. Now have them all. With the last cards in the pack being mostly 400s, you'll get quite a few of these. There was only one not found in this box - Dennis Byrd. I did find doubles of mostly good ones - Rison, Thurman, Emmitt, Neal Anderson, Esiason, Metcalf, Sterling Sharpe, DeBerg, Albert Bentley

Football Heroes

Namath is the subject for the high series. I only pulled 2, and they were the same. FH10
At least the box bottom was different.

Arch Rivals

Exclusive to high series. Vencie Glenn/Deion Sanders, Robert Delpino/Tim McDonald

Holograms

Hooray. None were Thurman! M. Allen, James Brooks x2, Earnest Byner x2

Found more Season Leaders this time, 5 of the 6. Now have them all.

I'll end up getting the high series set sometime but I liked this break. It was interesting. And I also found out how the high series cards and some of the low ones have a different hologram sticker from the low series packs lol. Coming up next will be more football or hockey.

1989 Topps Football Box

36 packs and 15 cards per. 1000 Yard Club insert and one gum stained card back in each pack. Been sooo long since I've opened packs with gum in them. Felt kinda good. Would I hit any good rookies with that dreaded gum?

Rookies

Super Rookie

Irvin x2, Thurman, Blades, Spielman, Ickey Woods, John Stephens, Erik McMillan x2, Hasty, Aundray Bruce, Mark Rypien, Jamie Morris, Jarvis Williams, Chip Lohmiller

Other notable rookies - Tim Brown x2, Bruce Matthews x2, Eric Allen, Woodson, Heyward x2, Carrier x2, Beuerlein x3, Sterling Sharpe, Chris Chandler, Jumbo Elliott

Inserts

1000 Yard Club

Got them all. Notables - Rice, Dickerson, Herschel, Toon x2

Nice little....I mean big....break. Not familiar with some of the RB and WR from that era that were expendable or had their moments but it was wholesome. I would've rather busted the Score but this will do. Hopefully I'll find the traded set soon and cheap. Even without Aikman and Sanders, the box can be worth it. Up next, maybe hockey finally.
