Upper Deck released details on its 2009 Spectrum Baseball set earlier this week, but the details of the latest rendition of the foil- and color-enhanced release are not what caught my eye.
Back for 2009 will be the Spectrum of Stars autographs — and the preliminary checklist looks pretty interesting.
Last year’s set was heavy on hair metal and had quite the selection of names on the initial checklist, so, yes, this year’s set could change before now and February when it’s released.
Right now, it’s heavy on science fiction — Star Trek, Heroes, Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers to name a few— and jam-packed with Kardashians. (While the sci-fi stars have a good amount of certified autographs to choose from, there will still be interest in those cards — if produced.)
Check out the tentative checklist after the jump.
