Jim Rice 1989 Upper Deck
When Upper Deck made its debut in 1989 with their first baseball card set, it took the hobby by storm. The set offered up a new kind of card stock, a high-gloss finish, superb images, and unique card backs.
Upper Deck built and executed the perfect recipe in 1989.
And now, almost 25 years later, the ’89 cards still stand out.
Have a look at this card of Jim Rice from the set:
The action captured here is perfect. And the colors work extremely well. Best of all the now-famous first base line that runs vertically down the right border of the card does not take away from any of the action while still supplying a fantastic baseball scene.
I LOVE IT!!!
