2007 Sweet Spot baseball is a continuation of the famous Sweet Spot brand. Rather than distributing the cards across 24 packs, Upper Deck made 2007 Sweet Spot into a 'loaded pack', with all the hits in one pack. The cards come in an attractive tin, and the pack in nicely packaged in a holder inside. Each pack contains two jersey cards, one rookie autograph, two base cards and one sweet spot signature. Redemptions are also inserted in the product, but as of this writing, they have expired. Buyer Beware! The two jersey cards were of stars Craig Biggio and Tim Hudson. I did not like how the jerseys were plain white, a product of this caliber needs to have color. My rookie helmet autograph was Alex Gordon, who is a fairly good prospect. I really liked the plastic embedded helmet, but the checklist is weak other than Lincecum or Matsuzaka. My two base cards were Kenji Johjima and Ken Griffey Jr. I personally think that base cards in a product like this is unnecessary. The cards are not attractive, and overall provide no addition to the box whatsoever. Finally, my sweet spot autograph was Darrell Rasner of the Yankees, on a regular ball. The huge negative was that the autograph was extremely faded and unreadable. The card was nothing special. 2007 Sweet Spot baseball is really a hit or miss product now. It has been confirmed that the autos on balls fade over time, and pulling any other material such as a glove or bat is rare. The redemptions are expired now, and some big cards are lost forever. Overall, 2007 Sweet Spot Baseball is a product that is fun to open, and can produce some great hits, but the negatives far outweigh the positives.
