Here I was on a Saturday afternoon getting ready to post about 2009 Upper Deck Sweet Spot when I came upon the greatest discovery of the year. It appears that Upper Deck included Jose Canseco into their checklist of this year’s Sweet Spot.
The first card, an insane bat barrel nameplate numbered to five copies has hit eBay and with four days left in the auction, it just might hit $500 dollars or more as soon as the big money Canseco collectors find it. It gives me hope for 2010 as there has not been much of anything for me to collect this year.
As for 2009 Sweet Spot, so far so good. I like the look of the sweet spot and regular autographs but the relics sure could use some work. As for the pulls so far, there seems to be quite a few duds mixed in with the occasional big name. It will be interesting to see what other surprises Upper Deck has in store.
