Earlier this year, Upper Deck included the above card in its 2009 Baseball set as one of nine Historic Firsts Predictors insert cards.
And if the prediction comes true and the International Olympic Committee selects Chicago as the host city for the 2016 Summer Games on Friday, Upper Deck will be coughing up some cardboard.
As in a free pack of baseball cards to fans across the country.
Chicago, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo are in the running for the Games.
Details will be announced on the company’s website, UpperDeck.com, if Chicago wins.
