The repack that was featured in my last post came with four packs of cards. Two of them were from 2008 Upper Deck, one was from the First Edition and the other was an Update to the First Edition. Why the second pack isn't called a Second Edition is beyond me.
No matter. We have our second Pack Wars here on my humble little blog and this one will pit card versus card!
In the pictures below, the First edition card will be on the left and the Update will be on the right. Also, for further clarification I have noticed the First Edition actually says "First Edition" directly beneath the player's name on each card.
Leading off in today's match up is Hank Blalock vs. Rafael Furcal.
First Edition 0, Update 1.
First Edition 0, Update 2.
First Edition 1, Update 2.
First Edition 2, Update 2.
First Edition 2, Update 3.
Grit every time.
First Edition 3, Update 3.
We have a barn burner here, folks! Four cards to go!
First Edition 3, Update 4.
First Edition 4, Update 4.
It's all knotted up with two more battles to go.
First Edition 4, Update 5.
Update has a one card advantage going into the last card of the packs. How will the contest unfold?
Final score: First Edition 4.5, Update 5.5.
Update maintains their one card margin of a lead and holds on for the win!
What do you think? Agree or disagree? Feel free to let the judges have it in the comment section below.
Oh, and as always, all cards featured in today's Pack Wars are up for trade. Just let me know!
Wait, what about the other two packs the repack guaranteed?
Well, one of them was a jumbo pack of 1989 Topps. I have about 1,500 repeats of 1989 Topps. I'm not terribly enthused about opening a JUMBO pack of the stuff. Yawn.
The other was a five card pack of 2007 Fleer Ultra, which I'll save for another edition of Pack Wars on a rainy/snowy day. Good stuff.
