I was just informed by Upper Deck that Jose Canseco has signed a non-exclusive autograph deal with former Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player, and the first man to accomplish the “40-40”, Jose Canseco.

Upper Deck surprised many collectors (including me) by adding Jose Canseco to their 2009 Sweet Spot checklist. The card, a game-used bat barrel numbered to five copies, recently sold for over $300 dollars.

The deal will be for the upcoming 2010 baseball release calendar and since the ink has barely dried on the Upper Deck contract, no additional information is available at this time.

Happy days are here again …

Jose is coming back!
