Manny Ramirez will bleed Dodger Blue in Upper Deck Update (and elsewhere)

The November Beckett Sports Card Monthly cover star — Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez — hasn’t yet appeared on an official widely produced MLB trading card in a Dodgers uniform.

(He did have an eTopps card not long after the Red Sox traded him, but it was limited to only 699 copies.)

But don’t worry Dodgers fans — he will undoubtedly have several update set appearances in his new threads. Here’s what his card in the upcoming Upper Deck Update boxed set (arriving in hobby shops on Nov. 11) will look like.

If the Dodgers own some extra bling-bling at that time (they’re down 0-1 in the NLCS right now), this card could get pretty hot — at least for a standard card.

    Actually, it was never made as that set was canceled last fall.
