Brewers Fortune Telling

For my second pack from the Prime Paks box (You can read the rationale here.), I'm choosing the other one that was visible from the outside of the box (not to mention adhering to the inner box cardboard via some sort of illegal-strength bonding agent), 2006 UD Special F/X. Does this pack practice the "deadly art of illusion?" You'll know the answer to that if I pull a Brian Dennehey insert.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
721 Mike Myers Parallel (60/99)
No, not that one.

Not him either.

There you go.

457 Gary Matthews
210 Dan Wheeler

PH-9 Player Highlights: Varitek Shines as All-Star

Score: Neutral
Grade: C
Upper Deck tried to recreate Topps Chrome, but it just doesn't work. The wrapper touts "a 1,000 card plus regular set." That's a bad idea. Best-case scenario: You open 250 packs and don't pull any doubles. A quick search of Serillusion found that the trademark owner is a Wisconsin printing company. Too bad, the effect went over worse than Smell-O-Vision.
