Fairfield Authentic Memorabilia repack

You've seen these in the big box stores.

Sometimes I just have to buy one. First, the memorabilia card.

I'm not a big fan of the 2010 Upper Deck jersey cards but this one features Chase Utley and has a stripe so I already feel like I got my money's worth.

The three packs were 2008 Upper Deck X, 2007 Fleer and 2007 Topps. Not among my favorite sets.

There were 8 base cards in the Fleer pack with two inserts. I had most of the cards already but I didn't have this one.

I'm happy with this since I collect Vlad.

The Topps pack was pretty much a waste of time. I did get this card which I didn't have.

Thorman was the Braves #1 draft pick in 2000 and I have his 2000 Bowman Draft Picks Autograph card, which, the last time I looked (several years ago) was booking at $80. Thorman hasn't played a game at the major league level since 2007 and has been on 5 different teams since then. If anyone wants to offer me $80 for the autograph card it's yours.

Then there was this.

A-Rod had something like 464 home runs heading into the 2007 season. That means there were 464 of these cards, one for each home run. There were only a handful of different photos used. I already had 214 and 215 which have the same photo as 213. Is this an insert set that anyone seriously chased?

I saved the 2nd best for last. This came out of the Upper Deck X pack.

Xponential 4! I had samples of 1, 2, and 3 (the only 3 I have is Ryan Howard). If I'm only going to have one of the 4s (and I don't expect to see another one) it might as well be Albert.

Wow, I'd say all-in-all, you scored pretty well with that one! I have debated about buying one myself. I am almost tempted after seeing this. Haha, I'd probably get rooked.
