Default UD USA Baseball 5-box case

Here are the top hits, I won't list all the autos and patches:
Steve Strasberg auto'd 175
Strasberg jersey 149

Tseng auto patch to 55
Chen auto patch to 55

Wes Hatton cut auto to 20
Blake Smith cut auto jersey to 25
Nolan Fontana cut auto " "

Ryan Lipkin "K" The Letters 4/6

Micah Gibbs auto green 2/2

I also got wayyyy too many duplicates for 35 autos/jerseys but not of Strasberg of course. Some of the regular jerseys were like 40% dupes. So be warned.

Not a great case but I guess overall it was solid.

Funny enough, I bought a box of USA Baseball, I'm missing card #26 from the set

That is a pretty solid case. The Gibbs Green is a nice hit although he is one of the worst prospects in the set IMO. Hitting a Letter is never a bad thing and the Strasburgs are on fire right now. If you throw everything on the bay, you'll probably come out behind but you could have done much worse.

Gah, worst prospect? I never, ever get lucky on a UD case, not once. Thanks for letting me know though. I was hoping for someone like Chris Hernandez.

I forgot to put up the auto'd questions to 20, I get 2 of Andrew Oliver
fave park - Fenway
fave team - Indians
I think I did get a Hernandez here, not sure.
and a few more.

WTF are the odds of getting 2 of the 20 Olivers in 1 case? Weird.

Gibbs seems to have a following so you won't get killed if you sell it, but he is a catcher (a position that rarely produces good prospects), he doesn't have much power (he hit 2 HRs last year I believe), and his BA has dropped off from around .333 last year to around .260 this year. Those numbers are college numbers with metal bats. Unimpressive to say the least. However, at least he isn't a relief pitcher.

Other than Strasburg, those #/20 parallels don't bring in much money for some reason. Make sure you check your patch autos for any Bryce Harpers. He is the other mega prospect in the set other than Strasburg. Also, Donavan Tate is doing pretty well right now in terms of recent selling prices.

Q&A to 20
Kyle Gibson
Dave Nick
C. Hernandez
Matt den Dekker

Jersey of Donovan Tate /179.

No Bryce Harpers at all from 65 cards and 11 doubles? Angry.
And about 3 other Gibbs cards, got 3 USA patches and 2 were the same lolz.

Thanks for the info.

I called UD to ask about the 3-4 patches I was shorted, they were very helpful so I sent in the receipt and UPC code, see what happens, I have low expectations so maybe they beat them, lolz.
