Euroleague Epack Insanity

2016-17 Upper Deck Euroleague Joe Alexander

While searching for some obscure former WVU players I came across this EuroLeague Joe Alexander card.  The price was right so I threw it in my cart and made the purchase.  It wasn't until I had the card in hand that I researched the set a little more.  It is a tad bit confusing.

This was the first year the EuroLeague set moved exclusively to ePack.  You're probably thinking how in the hell do you have a physical card.  Well, UD added a physical component, but it was kind of a pain in the ass.  The base set is 100 cards in which they are only digital.  If you collect 10 base cards of any one player you could earn a physical rainbow parallel.  The redemptions are made through COMC, thus explaining how I purchased this Alexander on there.  So while I initially thought I was overpaying for a base card it turned out to be a little more involved.  Either way I'm happy to have a new Joe Alexander card.  

Happy Friday! 


  1. Welp, I suppose I'm keeping the second one of these that I picked up for you!

    1. I'll happily trade you for another copy of it, but they are pretty scarce so you might be able to make a buck.

  2. I wdon't ndered what happened to Alexander. Loved him in college

  3. This is kinda off topic... but after seeing Alexander's name in this post... I was taken back to 2008/2009 when I was building the Topps Signature set. Alexander was one of the short prints in the autograph set. He super difficult to track down and was one of the final cards I picked up.
