Can Someone Please Explain 2008 Stadium Club Baseball to Me?

All right, so I'm slowly plugging away at my 2008 Stadium Club Baseball set but there seems to be way too many weird things going on. Can someone please correct me if I'm wrong and clarify the base set to me.

Here's what I know:

  • Cards divisible by 3 (3, 6, 9, 12, 45, 90, etc.) are #'d/999. Does this hold true for the RC's as well?
  • First Day Issue parallels of cards divisible by 3 (3, 6, 9, 12, 45, 90, etc.) are much easier to come by than the rest.
  • RCs (#101 - 150) have variations. Are they vertical and horizontal?
Seriously, this is the worst set up of a set I've ever seen. There should be no confusion building a simple base set. And who's stupid idea was it to shrot print every third card? It truly messes up the look when you try to put the cards in a binder.

Together with cost, the reason I quit set building. Well said! How many cases would it take to build that?! Or worse, how much money to get the Sps off ebay?


I can't explain it, but I have a couple on your want list. 102 FDI - Daric Barton, and 97 - Nolan Ryan.I also have #3 - Alfonso Soriano,but I need another #'d short print in trade for it because it's my sample card for the set.Any player would do if you have any duplicates.

I can explain the whole bit to you, but I need your email first. I have to warn you that retail, and hobby are two different monsters when it comes to the F.D.I's.

I did manage to complete the whole set. The retail version that is.

If the picture on the front of the R.C matches the back it is not a variation.
