2010 Upper Deck retail pack break #3

2010 Upper Deck retail [$1.50 each / $4 for three packs from a booth at a card show] - you can't see his face, the front of his uniform or the logo on the cap he is wearing, but Aaron Rowand's card [#427] is a pretty damn good looking card. 

The ball looks like it is going to sail into one of the gloves reaching for it from the stands, but it shows Rowand at his finest - going all out, regardless of the result.

Pack three
290 Jody Gerut

444 Franklin Gutierrez - he isn't an all-star yet, but the player referred to as 'Death to Flying Things' has quietly developed into one of the top outfielders in the American League.

539 Mike MacDougal
277 James Loney

44 Augie Ojeda
305 Todd Coffey
78 Lou Montanez

391 Delwyn Young
SB-21 Dave Bush / April 23rd

CP-15/CP-16 Kristen Stewart / Robert Pattinson - Celebrity Predictor insert / I don't know what to make of this card or the insert set. It isn't like middle age baseball card collectors are buying flagship Upper Deck for 'pop culture' insert cards, nor are tweens/teenyboppers looking to bust baseball card packs to find cards like the Celebrity Predictor inserts.
381 Jack Taschner

287 Hong-Chih Kuo
386 Carlos Ruiz
112 Bobby Scales
427 Aaron Rowand

599 Toronto team checklist - featuring Roy Halladay and Aaron Hill
275 Randy Wolf
544 Ballparks - the one in Boston, Massachusetts where the Big Papi lurks.
