UDlogo

Upper Deck released basic preview information for its 2010 Baseball set on Monday — but not card images — as collectors anticipate the unveiling of its first baseball line to be published without MLB team names and logos.

The basics for the product, scheduled to arrive on Feb. 3:

— It’s a 600-card base set consisting of veterans and rookies.

— There will be two memorabilia cards as well as one autograph card per 16-pack hobby box.

Exquisite Collection base cards will fall one per 12-box case.

— Also included will be Joe DiMaggio cut signature cards as well as 20th Anniversary Heroes art cards commemorating the first certified autograph, the 1990 Reggie Jackson Heroes card.

— There will be 20th Anniversary signed buyback cards from the 1990 Upper Deck set.

I take it this will be a 600-card, single-series release?

Nice to see UD bring the “Heroes” concept back, with Joe DiMaggio.

A 600 unlicensed card set should be ~mighty~ interesting to look at.

Wait, so UD is re-releasing some 1990 UD buybacks with autos? I can’t wait to get my copy of Ben McDonald and Kevin Maas. Woo HOO!

I had a gut feeling there’d be buybacks for some reason (with logos, of course).

Not entirely sure why the 1990 set needs to be celebrated, either. (However, for its time the set really does still stand out.)

Yes, let’s celebrate a set where you can find unopened boxes for $5 20 years later. This would be like Topps celebrating it’s run of garbage was from 87-91. Maybe UD can honor every one of its past sets with buybacks so we can recall when UD could still do logos on cards.

The 20th anniversary of the first modern pre-autographed insert, is worth celebrating. The rest of the set… not so much.
