Who is the one guy that you get a g/u card of in a box break that disappoints you the most?

For me, it's Carlos Delgado. It seems like every 3 or 4th box that I break, a Carlos Delgado g/u appears.

I'll take the Delgado GU cards out of your hands if you can find GU cards to trade for in my bucket.

I have gotten three in the past few years and haven't been able to move any of them.

Chien-Ming Wang... It seems like I got him 99% of the time when pulling any parallels, inserts or GU straight from the pack over the past few years.

Seems like when I was busting a lot of wax I always pulled Lance Berkman but I do remember pulling a Corey Patterson auto...ugh.

The same can be said for autos...any player who is an untested prospect (and obviously never makes it). How many 100s or 1000s of signed cards are floating around out there now that not even dedicated team collectors want (unless they are dirt cheap!)?

Unlike autos, which PACK products with no-name prospects who never make it, GU cards seem to stick with the more seasoned players though. So you usually get someone who played a little while or was maybe even an all-star a season or two.

Armando Benitez bat! Yes, I SAID BAT!!!! When does a relief pitcher who spent most of his career in the AL use a bat??????? I'll bet he never had more than 1. He probably used someone elses. I've always been skeptical about these GU'ed items. This didn't help!
