2009 Upper Deck Heroes Football Box 7 of 7

Box 7

Just an observation, UD cropped these photos nices. The player takes up the entire card without being overwhelming very much like the 84 Donruss set with one difference. The heroes set seems to be knee to waist up whereas the donruss set did have some full pics if I recall but most were similar in cropping to this set.

The Jerseys:
More Manning

and Rivers

The autos:
Percy Harvin - This is a terrible looking auto. It looks as bad as the pic and the auto is more like a scribble. Hey UD, Fire the guy or girl that nixed the white signing area from 2008.
Photobucket
Some Ucon guy - Darius Butler, nice sig man and I mean it.

Because these boxes are bought for the autos, I have to say that I am disappointed. The checklist is fine, but the autos are awful, terrible, horrible, sad, a waste. There are 5 more boxes of 2008 Heroes (just killed it, some really nice autos)that I have yet to post and 2 boxes of 2008 Masterpieces football.

Verdict of 2009 Heroes: B-, buy when they hit $50, and they will. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday within the next year.
