2007 Masterpieces Baseball Cases 5 and 6 - The Numbered Parallels

These are of course my main motivation for busting the 6 cases of masterpieces in the last 6 weeks.  Insanity?  Surely.  You get 2 serialed parallels per box.  There are 7 sets other than the 1/1's.  Serious Black /99, Black Linen /99, Pinot Red /75, Blue Linen /75, Rusted /50, Hades /50 and finally Blue Steel /50.

There has been much confusion over what version is which.  I actually researched paper color to find out the answer for sure.  As I have said before, Beckett has Ionised listed as an /50.  That is contrary to the Upper Deck Website.  In researching the paper colors I determined that the Rusted is actually Rusted Green Metallic, that makes a bit more sense, the blue steel is in fact brighter than the Hades although they are very very close and in the right, or wrong light if you prefer, they look almost identical.  Hades is supposed to be darker perhaps as Hades is associated with Black.  In some light, the hades does look very dark.

In better news, I am 3 away from the /75 Green Football and Baseball sets.
