Red, white and blue-clad future baseball stars are packed into a popular annual issue.
Upper Deck has once again partnered with USA Baseball to produce a 2009 USA Baseball Team boxed set. The annual issue includes players from the 2009 US National Team, the 18U National Team and the 16U National Team.
Every 70-card set includes seven total autographs in every box, including five on-card, hard-signed autographs. Collectors will also discover three game-used jersey cards in each box, including rare, autographed game-used patch cards in many instances.
“We are pleased to once again partner with Upper Deck to produce the 2009 USA Baseball Box Set,” said David Perkins, Chief Operating Officer of USA Baseball. “By featuring the first baseball cards of some of the game’s top rising stars in the box set, we hope to provide collectors and fans of USA Baseball with a product they will appreciate and value.”
“The USA Baseball National Teams’ box sets are extremely popular every year, but it was important to us to make them highly collectible by offering cards of some of the best youngsters in baseball,” added Gabriel Garcia, Upper Deck’s Baseball brand manager. “To have a collection that features the likes of backstop extraordinaire Bryce Harper, pitching phenoms Jameson Taillon, Karsten Whitson and Drew Pomeranz, and up-and-comers like Christian Colon and Bryce Brentz will appeal to any baseball fan, young or old, male or female.”
