1999 Upper Deck Ricky Martin Cards

Okay, I'll take your Cindi Lauper cards, and raise you a pack of Ricky Martin cards. These were put out by Upper Deck in 1999 and at the time they were believed to be the cause of the Y2K problem.



Along with never playing poker with a woman with visible tattoos or trusting a guy with two first names, there has to be a rule about a man with no armpit hair who is not an Olympic swimmer.





This is one of the "La Vida Loca" Rainbow Foil insert that came in one in every four packs. When you're lucky, you're lucky.

Oh boy! We can look for "sequentially numbered facsimile signature cards!"

Holy crap. I don't even know how to comment on this craptacular pack of cards. You're right - there is the Y2K scare right there.

This one should be in the hall.... the hall of shame... one reason: it exists at all.

Now, it could go hall of fame based on the fact you had the guts to open it in the first place. You got real spunk, kid.

Wow! I had no idea such a product existed and frankly, it seems odd that UD of all people produced this.

I saw a ton of packs of these in the 3 for $1 bin at my card store... it might have actually been 5 for $1, or 3 for 50 cents... still didn't seem worth it.

If I were Konami or MLB Properties, as part of recent legal settlements against Upper Deck, I would fight to mandate that they must reprint this set in vast quantities as punishment. I herd you liek repritning counturfiet cards...
