There has been a rumor going around for months about just who is funding Brian Gray’s Razor trading card company. For a long time it was believed that none other than Upper Deck was in charge but none of the higher ups in the online community would accept or even acknowledge the hearsay.

I recently received an anonymous letter with a memo from the Major League Baseball Player’s Association regarding Razor & Upper Deck. In the memo, dated just a couple of days ago, it speaks on how Upper Deck’s C.E.O., Richard McWilliam, has admitted to funding and controlling Razor.

If you recall, Razor has an exclusive contract to produce trading cards of #1 draft pick, Tim Beckham. Ironically, 2008 Bowman Chrome was considered to have a less than stellar checklist according to many serious prospectors. Like them or not, Razor made a serious dent in the prospect card market in 2008.

The information in this memo has not been verified by anyone.
