Cheap Wax Wednesday Box Breaks – 2008 Upper Deck Draft Edition Football
Since the World Series has ended (Congratulations to all you Nationals fans! I was actually rooting for the Nats to win.), we have switched over to football breaks through the end of the NFL playoffs. Baseball breaks will be back after the Super Bowl.
We’re kicking off football with 2008 Upper Deck Draft Edition Football, a product that mixes college and NFL uniforms.

Finally, the Matt Ryan card back. As you can see, “Matty Ice” wasn’t always the stud QB at Boston College.
Back in 2008 this box would have been pretty hot! Looking at the autographs now, though, they don’t look all that impressive. There are some big names to be found in this product though, including Matt Ryan, Matt Forte and Joe Flacco, to name a few. It’s certainly worth a shot.
