2008 UD Piece of History 5-Box Break (Pulled my 1st Jersey Button!)
I can't believe I'm saying this but Upper Deck did a very nice job making this product. I had a lot of fun busting Piece Of History. The memorabilia cards are creative and the addition of multiple insert sets and parallel cards (at a ratio of 1 per pack) put some added value in it. The only real flaw that I noticed was that the Hollywood memorabilia cards lack photos of the actual stars. But for only $65/box that ain't all that bad.
I Pulled my first game-used button jersey (#d/5) and 3 out of the 5 boxes had '5 hits'. Only one box lacked a case hit and I highlighted them. Here are the results...
