2005 Origins Materials Completed

With the acquisition of this Nolan Ryan SP, I have completed the 42 card 2005 Upper Deck Origins Materials set.
When I first laid eyes on this set, I knew I had to build it. The bright colored border, the diamond shaped swatch window, and the great checklist, all made for a very appealing set.

  1. Impressive! That is a very nice set to put together... I'm jealous!
