1998-99 Upper Deck Choice Double Box Break Part 2


Here's the second box of 98-99 Upper Deck Choice that I opened a couple weeks ago, still holding hope for a StarQuest gold parallel.  I've omitted scans of cards that I've already pulled from the last box break.

Box break results under the cut.

Pack 1


SQ29 - Mark Messier / StarQuest / Red.  Nice start to a second box break of this stuff.

81 - Curtis Joseph.  A nice in the game landscape shot of Cujo.  I think it would have been nicer if it was more focused on Joseph - on the other hand an action shot is an action shot.

Pack 2

SQ11 - Joe Sakic / StarQuest / Green.  Always welcomed!

Pack 3
BH6 - John Leclair / Mini-Bobble Head.

51 - Tony Amonte.  After the third pack break I finally pull a base card that I don't already have.

Pack 5


168 - Jaromir Jagr.  I've been waiting to pull this Jagr base card.

225 - Wayne Gretzky / GM's Choice (Patrick Roy).

In total (including the few cards from this set that I already had) this is the breakdown of the set that I managed to complete.

StarQuest Blue 30/30
StarQuest Green 11/30
StarQuest Red 07/30

Mini-Bobbling Heads 16/30

Base Set  203/310

$16 well spent just tearing into the 72 packs and reliving the nostalgica from the cards.  I have a ton of doubles (especially StarQuest cards) from this box so if anyone is looking for something, let me know.

  1. Ripped open a half dozen of those cases recently on sale at walmart for 8 bucks a box with 36 packs per...got roughly what u did, but maybe a bit better in the fact that i got over 6 full sets of the base star quest, a full set of the greens and missing four including the gretzky for the red set...no golds or prime choice reserves, but pulled a fat stack of over 20 different gretzkys including some Choice reserve ones...not lookin to make money, prefer trades, but in anyone else wants some, post on here and ill get ahold of u or post back here again..cheers.
