I received a surprise phone call from Upper Deck this morning. The reason for the call was to thank the Wax Heaven readers for the great discussion on the possibility of 2010 Masterpieces.

This of course gave me a great idea for a contest and to help Upper Deck create the best products for baseball that they can in 2010. Last week I received loose packs of 2009-’10 SP Game-Used Edition and 2009-’10 SP Signature Basketball.

I am offering up to one lucky collector every single game-used card and certified autograph that came in those packs and all you have to do to be considered for this contest is answer the following hobby-related questions.

The Upper Deck Product Development team will be reading and your input just may help mold the baseball products for the 2010 calendar year. Plus, it’s FREE stuff so it’s all good.


1. What was your favorite Upper Deck baseball release of 2009?

2. What was your least favorite Upper Deck baseball release of 2009?

3. Which brand/insert/would you like to see return in 2010?

4. Will you be purchasing any Upper Deck baseball releases in 2010?

5. What is your biggest issue with U.D. as a card company?

(keep #5 honest but professional)
