Q & A – 2008 UD Masterpieces Football Missing Card Numbers & Errors?

 Photobucket

Question:  I have been putting together the 2008 Upper Deck Masterpiece football set numbered 1-110.  I printed the check list off of Upper Deck’s web site and found that the set is skip numbered, but could not figure out a rhyme or reason that they did this.  I was curious if you knew why?  The numbers that they skipped are 45, 59, 70, and 100.  I have noticed that there are some errors on cards like just printing the artists name instead of “Artist: XXXX”( #84 Tom Brady) and that they capitalized Artist on the base cards but when it came to the time warps and SP Rookies they did not.  Then again maybe I am looking into things way too much or it was Upper Deck’s mistake in trying to get the cards to the public in haste after it was pushed back.  Any light you could shed on the subject would be appreciated.

Answer:  Those missing card numbers from the checklist indicate that those specific cards were never produced.  The word “Artist” being capitalized on some cards, and not on others is probably and error on Upper Deck’s part.  Upper Deck Masterpieces is a “set builders” product, meaning when you have a lot of cards with multiple parallels to produce, there are bound to be some mistakes made.  Sometimes these mistakes truly happen by accident, and other times I believe card manufacturers do it on purpose to create a buzz about their product.  Thanks for the question, and please keep reading Sports Card Info.
