Et tu, Upper Deck?



And to think, I thought Upper Deck was above the fake error card gimmick. I guess I was wrong.

Where the heck have you been? When the two big boys in the baseball card blog world don't update for weeks you start to wonder----

Welcome back!

It's called "Tahnksgiving Break." Or, as I like to call it, "The End of the Last Semester of Undergrad, Get-that-Term-Paper-Finished Rush."

If I may quote River City Ransom...

Wow! That just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I, too, thought Upper Deck was beyond the Topps fake error BS.

On a brighter note, welcome back!

Welcome back, hope the paper turned out well! :-) I'm curious how Topps and UD profit from 'fake' errors... I mean, if they were getting cuts of the sales, maybe, but once some doofus sells and re-sells it, the "profit" the card companies se is long gone....

Looking forward to your next post so I don't have to keep seeing A-Rod everytime I came back here....

Just a hypothesis here. Maybe UD believed that Arod would not be back as a Yankee, therefore an Ex Yankee,
ex Rod. I think the cards with the team logos would all be teams that would have had the money to sign him
