Unexpected Baseball Cards

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was fantastic! We had dinner at my Mother-in-law's house and then we went to my parents house for dessert. When we got to my parents house I noticed that they had decorations up. Upon further inspection, I noticed that they were baseball decorations. When we walked into the family room, everyone yelled congratulations! I finished my MBA last week, and my wife and family had planned a little something to celebrate as a surprise. There was a sign that read, Try to stump the Baseball MASTER. (MASTER, because I now have a Master's Degree.) They put together some baseball trivia and it was me against everyone else, first to 10 points won. I, of course won, and my prize was a 2009 Topps Updates & Highlights rack pack, 5 retail 2009 Topps Updates & Highlights packs, a 2009 Upper Deck Series 1 pack, and a 2009 Bowman Chrome hobby box. Geat prizes! It's late so I am only going to post the results of the packs. I will try to post the box break tomorrow. Here goes.
