Breakin Wax:2013 Upper Deck USA Football Hobby Box Part 2

I have said this before, Upper Deck USA Football is one of the most underrated products out on the market. It's like the Bowman baseball of football cards.

All of the guys featured in the product are 18-19 years old and have yet to hit potential. So call this a pre-draft product. Heck, in 2012 USA football it featured two of this years tops players in the draft in Todd Gurley and Jameis Winston. I am glad to have bought some of that when I found it cheap. After the draft, it may not be.

Anyways, I busted another hobby box of 2013 and pulled a bonus hit. Five hits were mentioned, but six were found.

First, are the jersey cards I pulled.

I always like pulling key offensive positions in this product. That's where the true gold mine could lay.

Then autographs

A RB, sweet!

I really like the triple autographs. It's like getting extra hits!

Then each box is always topped off with a sweet auto/patch card. Another thing I like about these patch and jersey cards is the fact they are game used. You don't see much of that anymore.
Overall, another good break. The prices on these boxes are cheap and there is so much variety in them. As I have stated before, if you prospect at all, this is the way to prospect for football. Even if you don't, give it a try anyways. There are some nice looking cards to find especially the memorabilia ones.


  1. Very cool. Just curious... did the game used memorabilia come from a game between Team USA vs. Team Canada?

    1. That's a great question. I will have to dig those out again and check the backs. I don't think they specified but I could be wrong.
