2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces

The first pack from Dayf. A product which I thought was brilliant in 2007 and 2008. But will it still be around in 2009?
The set consists of 120 base cards, of which 30 were short prints.
There were many parallels included: the Black and Red were not serial numbered. The other colours were: Navy (/125), Brown (/100), Green (/75), Blue (/50), Silver (/25), Gold (/10), Light Blue (/5) and Red (1/1).
There were inserts: Stokes of Genius, Captured on Canvas-jersey, patch, patch+autograph and jersey+autograph (seriously a set collectors dream!)
There are 4 cards per pack.

The pack:

#18 Alfonso Soriano Cubs
#26 Grady Sizemore Indians
#47 Prince Fielder Brewers
#81 Ichiro Mariners
No Red Sox, but still a really nice set. Excellent choice of pack Dayf.

I don't usually splurge on high end packs, but I did buy one pack of 2008 masterpiece and came up with a silver frame Wade Boggs #12 07/25. Can't find a value on it due to scarcity though. Any knowledge of it?
