A couple weeks ago I showed off the results of four 2015 UD football value packs, and now I'm back to report that for about the price of a couple more of those I've completed the 145-card base set, including the veterans (1-45) and non-SPed Star Rookies (46-145). I found the 12 rookies I needed from one Sportlots seller and grabbed a veterans set on eBay to close this one out. While the rookies I picked up include a few interesting names, such as controversial LSU OL La'el Collins, I didn't consider them worth showing off. However, the vets are a nice multiple of nine which means they were screaming to be posted. Here they are:
I like that Upper Deck mixed things up a bit this year with the player selection (despite the lack of Wolverine subjects), and my only real complaint is the inclusion of Saban. Of course I also laughed at guys like Tim Couch and Joey Harrington because of how they turned out in the NFL, but as a college-themed set they certainly belong.
And that's another excellent UD football set in the books. Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
