Upper Deck Ballpark Collection

10 09 2008

Upper Deck has the images up on their website for Ballpark Collection, and I was actually think about buying a box until I remembered that it’s $150 for 20 cards.  Too bad. I really like the look and feel of these cards. 

Champagne taste on a microbrew budget, I guess.  Here’s hoping for a blaster box or two.

And with a tear in my eye I note that the two Reds in the base set (Griffey and Dunn) have both been traded, which makes me wonder which Reds would have replaced them had the trades come sooner.  Since Cueto and Bruce are in the rookie short print set, I’m guessing Phillips and Votto, provided the Reds still get two spots.  I’d love to see a Votto card in this design.

Ballpark Collection is set for release Sept 17th.
