Bob Gibson 2005 Upper Deck Classics

Bob Gibson 2005 Upper Deck Classics

Easily one of my favorite modern-era issues, the 2005 Upper Deck classics set is superb.

The design is rather basic, but the different elements that Upper Deck used work very well together.

The team logo and banner that contains the player name and position are well done, and carrying the team’s colors into the banner helps tie it all together.

And I like the 3-D effect that UD used by placing Gibson’s image on top of the picture’s frame.  That small move gives the card life as I feel like ‘Hoot’ is going to fire a 97-mile fastball in my direction.

Great job by Upper Deck on this one!!!

  1. The color red really “pops” on these cards.
