Fanfest Flashback: 2007 Redemption Sets

Here are the images of the redemption sets obtained at the 2007 Fanfest in San Francisco. It took a lot of wrappers of sets I didn't necessarily collect plus some time on ebay (because I only attended one day of the Fanfest) to obtain these.

Here is the Topps 7 card set (during 07/07 no less) plus an extra A-Rod for no particular reason. The set checklist is Tim Lincecum, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, David Wright, Ryan Howard, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Mickey Mantle.

Here is the Upper Deck 12 card set; I was only able to obtain the first 6 during that day. The "veteran" pack checklist is Derek Jeter, Ken Griffey, Jr, Cal Ripken, Jr, Albert Pujols, Barry Zito, and Ichiro. The "rookie" pack checklist is Daisuke Matsuzaka, Kei Igawa, Akinori Iwamura, Josh Hamilton, Phil Hughes, and Tim Lincecum. The Upper Deck packs also had randomly inserted Grand Slam inserts, of which I received none.

For those who went or are going to the Fanfest, these are the type of exclusive cards to expect. Some are worthwhile, but they are definitely unique. Try not to go too pack crazy while trying to complete them.
