To blow some of my Christmas money I bought a Hobby Box of 2008 Upper Deck Sweet Spot [from Three Star Sportscards in the Twin Cities] and a Retail Sweet Spot tin from Target. And believe it or not, the products worked out exactly as they should [in my opinion].
The Hobby version is $20.00 and contains eight cards of which one of them is either an autograph or relic card. The Retail version runs at $29.99 and contains three packs of eight cards of which one card is an auto or relic. The Hobby version comes in a box while the Retail version comes in a tin.
Here's some shots of the base cards:
Each pack also contains one Yankee Stadium Legacy card:
And finally, what we all came to see:

The Retail pack gives me an unnumbered single color patch of a future Hall of Famer while the Hobby version gives me a numbered [6/25] card with each patch being two-colored and part of the numbers of the three best catchers in the league. This is how it's supposed to work.
