Florida Marlins 2009 Upper Deck Team Set
2009 was the last year in which Upper Deck was allowed to produce baseball cards featuring MLB team names and logos.
And while I will not get into all of the reasons and stories that I have read about their demise in the baseball word of card making, I will say that they went out with a bang!!
The 2009 set is beautiful.
Here is the Florida Marlins team set from that issue:
I really like that UD used the image for the full size of the card. The pictures chosen show great action and the coloring is fantastic. And while the graphics are very subtle, I really like the combination of Gold, Silver, and Black that was chosen.
The inserts are great. And I am digging the card of Josh Willingham – what a great shot!!!
