Ultimate Checklist: 2008 UD Documentary

I mentioned these cards last week when I got a slew of them in the mail, so I'm not going to waste much more of your time. However, I have made it my duty to catalog all Granderson releases, and I won't betray that already.

To summarize, I do not like UD Documentary. I don't like that there are very few different pictures, that the pictures don't match up with the game description and that the players on the card don't necessarily depict the key players from the game in question. That said, I do really like the concept of UD Documentary. I like the idea that every major league game can be captured and preserved, creating a baseball card version of Sportscenter. Still, the execution of this set was quite poor and falls short of another infamously bad continuity set, Topps Moments & Milestones. Thankfully, there aren't a million parallels gumming this one up even more. Nope, there is the regular card and a "Gold" parallel that has "2008" embossed in big gold letters on the side. Granderson's checklist looks like this:

#103
#403
#703
#1003
#1303
#1603
#1903
#2203
#2503
#2803
#3033
#3123
#3213
#3303
#3393
#3483
#3573
#3663
#3753
#3843
#3933

Sorry for the uninspired post--Upper Deck did not give me much to work with.
