TTM Success - Garrett Atkins
Upper Deck X is probably one of the least popular products in the hobby. It was a lower price-point product that was geared more toward kids and retail. Still, some nice cards did come out of the product, and if I was going to have somethig represented from that set, the above XPonential insert of Atkins was a nice one to go with.
I also love the foil UD Spectrum, which came from 2009, as well. I think of all of the three Atkins cards that came back, that one looks the best. I also sent a 2009 UD Baseball Heroes, but Atkins kept that card.
Atkins (b. 1979) played in the majors from 2003 to 2010 for the Rockies and Orioles. He had 835 hits, 99 home runs and a .285 batting average. He finished 15th in the NL MVP voting in 2006 when he batted .329 with 29 home runs and batted in 120 runners for Colorado.
I mailed to Atkins on March 6 and got the cards back on March 20, for a 14-day TAT.
