When Upper Deck deals you lemons, try and cure cancer.

A group of smart collectors may have found a purpose for Upper Deck's Yankee Stadium "world-record-that-really-isn't-a-world-record" mirror insert: Fighting cancer. The folks behind the card trading site "The Bench" are asking collectors to donate their Yankee Stadium Legacy cards.

The plan to is to build the entire 6500+ card set, auction the completed set on eBay, and then donate 100% of the proceeds to The V Foundation.

For more information on the project, check out this website, and this facebook group.
