65 - Troy Percival (At this point, I guess I should stop and make a comment. Of the first four players pulled in this pack, which one is actually still in the league? If your answer is "Kevin Millwood", you would be correct!)
53 - Yovani Gallardo (Gallardo will be dueling Chris Carpenter in Game 3 of the NLCS tomorrow night. Exciting stuff!)
167 - Hanley Ramirez (We'll see if Hanley can rebound from his freefall and actually put some people in the seats at the new Fish stadium.)
328 - Luis Mendoza (This is a confusing card because Mendoza actually appeared 6 times with the Rangers before 2008 and yet Upper Deck did not have a current photo of him. That seems like more of a Topps thing.)
356 - Prince Fielder Team Checklist (As long as Prince keeps hitting his home runs at the wrong end of a 9-run drubbing, things will be alright in my book.)
YSL2230 - Joe DiMaggio Yankee Stadium Legacy (I've heard that next season, Upper Deck is planning a Sun Life Stadium/Pro Player Stadium/Dolphins Stadium/Land Shark Stadium/Joe Robbie Stadium Legacy insert set to be discovered in all of their terrible, unlicensed products. True fact. Confirmed.)
I thought the drill was:
Upper Deck-uses old photos for cards.
Just a hunch.
