4 Boxes 2011 Upper Deck Texas - ricky williams 34 - 12-30-2011 11:12 PM

So I bought 4 more boxes for my Christmas present to self. Wink The best boxes were the first and the last, but I'll show them both last here. I'm now about halfway finished with the Icons set (they come 2/box).

<b>Box 1: Not fabulous, but not horrible. Went old school with the auto more than a few times today. Wink

Box 2: Same...not fab, not horrible. Lots of guys named Bill went to UT! I got a gold parallel, they're inserted about a rate of 1:3.5 boxes based on some info from a friend who opened a case.

Box 3: My first box opened. Could have stopped here and been extremely happy. If he didn't special order them for me, I might have!!

Don't hate just 'cuz there won't ever be a Mizzou set. It's cool.

Special order my friend. Wink That's what I have to do...he won't just stock them 'cause he's in Wyoming. LOL

Roosevelt, Applewhite, and COLT!!! Damn that's awesome...loving these cards. Wish I had a die-hard college team but sadly I mostly follow players. Very sweet looking set RW

The old school is actually very fun. It's great to see some of these guys get cards! The Icons inserts aren't die-cut, but they sure look like it. Just a different type of texture...smoother on the sides and the "cut".

Had to take all 4. Couldn't special order and leave my LCS guy hanging!! Besides, he's much bigger than I am and don't want to risk what might happen! Wink

My LCS is stocking both the Texas and OU boxes, not selling though LOL!
The McCoy makes me want to drink until I can't feel feelings anymore LMBAO! Congrats on the Applewhite, he should have started over Simms. Greatest name for a quarterback ever BTW.
