  • 2008 Upper Deck

    I just saw on ESPN that UD will include presidential candidates portrayed as baseball players in this years set. They mentioned Fred Thompson will be portrayed as the Babe. Anyone know anything else about this?

    Sorry if that already been posted... nothing came up in the search..

      From Upper Deck's website:
      Upper Deck has included a very unique “Presidential Predictor” card set. The illustrated parodies show several of the top candidates from this year’s Presidential race in rare form by tying each one of them to a pivotal moment or personality from baseball’s rich history.

      The cards can be seen on the Upper Deck website. Curiously, Hillary Clinton is not in the set; presumably, she was supposed to be included because the set as listed on the website is missing card PP-7, which I'm guessing would have been hers.

          He's got a Chisox uniform so more like Frank Thomas or their manager
          Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

            Interesting. They broke the rookies into a seperate checklist "block" (rather than numbering them with their teams as they've done the past couple years). True RC's (off the top of my head)...
            -Jonathan Albaladejo
            -Willie Collazo
            -Ian Kennedy
            -Jonathan Meloan
            -Carlos Muniz

            EDIT: Mets fans, take note! Mike Pelfrey's first MLB autographed card appears in this set as part of the one auto per box thing, too (So does Jorge Sosa, but who'd you rather have an autograph of? Our long reliever or our best pitching prospect?).
