Flashback Product of the Week: 2001 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Baseball

I’m about 99.999999999% positive that Upper Deck got the idea for Sweet Spot from 2000 Fleer Showcase Sweet Sigs.  Maybe its just me, but I think they look a lot alike.  Anyway, back in 2001 Upper Deck released one of their most popular brands – Sweet Spot.  The biggest thing about this product are the autographs that are signed on the actual sweet spot of a baseball.  Each box contains 18 packs with 4 cards per pack.  There is 1 jeresey, 1 bat, 1 Sweet Spot Signature or Dual/Triple base relic, and 1 Joe DiMaggio Pinstripe Exclusive Bonus pack in each box.  Out of all the relics in the hobby, I really don’t like cards containing pieces of base.  It just seems so generic.  Boxes are a little pricey (about $200.00+) because they could contain rookies of Ichiro, Pujols, and Teixeira.
