Upper Deck has struck a deal with a custom card making app for iPhone. Rookies allows users to create custom baseball cards using their own photos and the card designs it offers. The agreement, according to this story on BizJournals.com, will put Upper Deck card designs in the mix.
The cost to create those cards on your iPhone (an Android version of the app is coming next year) is $12.99 plus shipping. For that you get 20 custom cards.
