18 packs, 4 cards per pack
Set completion: 57 out of 90 (63%)

With the cards I had from this set prior to purchasing the box, I now stand at 67 out of 90 (74%) base cards. That’s not a huge success rate as far as set building!

I ended up with three GU and one AU, rather than the advertised odds of one GU and three AU. Works for me; I’d rather have the GU cards anyway. Getting a Dice-K GU was a bonus too.

Parallels

The Wright parallel looked nice, but I really find myself frustrated more often than not when it comes to parallels. I don’t want them, and they’re taking up space in my packs that could be used for base cards that I want.

I still love the look of these cards, and I’m just a trade away from completing the set. Kudos to Upper Deck for doing such a small, manageable, easier to collect set. It’s a shame that they had to go and ruin this year’s Masterpieces by adding 30 pointless short-prints to it.
