Sometimes it's really hard to say "I'm content with the box I just broke." Usually box breaks go either two ways, you got one really awesome hit and the rest is kinda meh or it's just all crap and you feel like you blew your money.
I'm here to say, I'm content and very pleased with my break. I can't remember the last time I broke a box and was just happy with everything I got from the box. I think the part that helps is the fact that I only paid $39.95 for this box of 2008 Masterpieces.
I knew this would be a pretty good box when the first Yankee Stadium Legacy card I pull is non other than Don Mattingly.
Here is what I ended up with:
4 base cards I needed - Joba, Fukudome, Mauer, Tulowitzki
4 short print cards I needed - Eddie Murray, Derek Jeter, Al Kaline, Albert Pujols
2 short print doubles - Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench
4 Yankee Stadium Legacy cards (including Don Mattingly game #5171)

Stroke of Genius Auto: Joe Nathan
I think I made out the best with the border cards
Black: Magglio Ordonez, Freddy Sanchez, Ryne Sandberg, Tony Gwynn
Red Border: Greg Maddux
And the highlight of my box break:
Cal Ripken Jr numbered 30 of 125
Can't beat that for 39.95. I really enjoyed opening this box, there seemed to be something in every pack and that's always a plus. I'm down to 14 cards I need to complete the set. I doubt I'll buy another box but if I can find one for $40 (the price of 2 blasters), I'll be very tempted to get another.
