Cards that will be in '09 UD.

This card will be randomly inserted into packs of 2009 Upper Deck Series One.



Yes, that is a card of a hockey game, in a baseball product.

But wait, there's also these...



And you thought UD wouldn't issue an Obama card?

It's all part of a ten-card, 1:6/pack, insert in Series One called "2008 Historic Firsts." They're also putting in that guy who wasted $15,000 to build a complete set of Yankee Tedium Lunacy, those two pitchers from India that signed with the Pirates, as well as "the first athlete to win eight gold medals at a single Olympiad." (Hmmmm, I wonder who that could be?)

Unfortunately that is not the first Winter Classic. Way to go UD.

While that game (Pens @ Sabres 1/1/08) wasn't the first outdoor NHL game, it was the first one tagged as the "Winter Classic" so technically, it's correct.

Pirates and Penguins are getting some love!

Strangely I'm ok with this insert set....

Same thing as the Heritage News Flashbacks set, just 2008 instead of 1959. The Indian pitchers is actually a pretty cool card.

Also, I don't know about you, but if I knew building a Yankee Lunacy set would get me my own card I would have been on that bitch.

Oh well...I for one can accept it if the base card set looks sweet as usual.

it is the first winter classic at wrigley, and wrigley is a baseball stadium, so it is sort of kind of right and on subject...right?
