2009 UD SPx Buybacks

From Upper Deck:

North Las Vegas, NV (March 26, 2009) – Upper Deck’s 2009 SPx Baseball debuted this week and collectors have been buzzing over game-used and autograph buyback packs added to the product. Collectors can find one of these packs in each box along with four jersey cards and one autograph card, on average. With nine 20th Anniversary cards and four Joe DiMaggio “Career Highlights” cards per box, 2009 SPx Baseball is loaded.


The game-used and autographed buyback cards have been purchased from hobby outlets over the last several months. Upper Deck pulled out all the stops and had Professional Sports Authenticators (PSA) slab 10 of the most limited cards in the buyback packs and they are now being offered as exchange cards. Some of those cards include the 1992 Upper Deck Ted Williams autograph card, the 2001 SP Legendary Cuts Joe DiMaggio Cut Signature card and the 2001 SPx Baseball Albert Pujols autograph rookie card, to name a few.


“Adding meaningful content like this is a great way for us to highlight many of the unique cards that helped make Upper Deck the leader in the sports card industry,” said Gabriel Garcia, Upper Deck’s associate brand manager for Baseball. “Collectors will also find tremendous value with each box already with the four memorabilia cards and one autograph card on average.”


Another addition to 2009 SPx Baseball is the return of mystery rookie autograph exchange cards. Collectors who pull these cards can find out which card they will receive by registering the cards online. Upper Deck will announce which players those cards are good for throughout the season. The first card (RR1) will be exchanged for pitcher Koji Uehara of the Baltimore Orioles, a former Rookie of the Year in Japan and two-time Sawamura Award winner for being the top starter in Japan. Uehara signed 25 of these cards in Japanese as well which should create some additional chase.


Start the season off right with 2009 SPx Baseball available in stores now.
