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.
— There will be two Season Biography cards per pack — cards that will show highlights of every day from the 2009 season.
