2009 Upper Deck 20th Anniversary Retrospective #1296

Card Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Year: 2009
Card Set: Upper Deck 20th Anniversary Retrospective
Card Number: 1296
Card Type: Base Insert

At the end of Upper Deck's multisport licenses they were putting out huge sets.  I mean their 2009 baseball set was over 1000 cards.  They also put out a Yankee Stadium Legacy insert set that was 5000 cards, so this set falls right in the middle with 2500.

These 20th Anniversary cards were seeded though out all of Upper Deck's products in 2009.

The good news, Robin has 5 cards in the set, 1296-1300.  The bad news, all the card use that same photo and look exactly the same.  Sure each card focuses on a different aspect of Robin's career, but if you were to lay them out side by side there's almost no difference.  I guess that's how you can make a 2500 card set fast.  

We do get a nice crotch shot of Robin in a classic Brewers blue uniform and pinstripe pants.  The back is pretty simple with just about as much information on the front.
