The final SPx Mystery Autograph Redemptions were revealed today, which brings to an end the long wait collectors have had to make. RR5 & RR7 belong to Max Scherzer, of the Arizona DIamondbacks and Alexei Ramirez, of the Chicago White Sox. Unlike the Topps Finest redemptions, these SPx cards received little to no fanfare despite carrying some of the biggest names in the hobby.
As far as the card with the most potential in the set, right now it has to be Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays, who will soon make his American League Championship Series debut, while the way over-hyped Jay Bruce is wondering where all the hobby attention went.
I have a Clayton Kershaw RR6 on the way so if anyone is interested, you know who I collect. Unfortunately, it still shows that the card has yet to be signed by the athlete on Upper Deck’s site. It might take a little while but damn it if I don’t get a good Andrew Miller in a trade!
