Product Highlight: 2007 Upper Deck Holiday Inn Baseball

The 2007 Upper Deck Holiday Inn Baseball set is nothing earth shattering, but an interesting promotion.  For those members of the Holiday Inn Priority Club that stayed at a participating Holiday Inn hotel between May 31, 2007 and July 30, 2007 received a special pack of Upper Deck baseball cards.  You received a pack for each night stayed.  Inside each pack there are (4) cards – (3) base, and (1) Cal Ripken, Jr. insert.  There are (5) Ripken inserts, and the entire base set consists of (60) cards. Its possible to find those Ripken inserts with a code on the back. The codes were meant to be used in the Priority Club Rewards Program.

You won’t find any rookies, relics, autographs, or parallels.  Adding at least one of those elements would have drastically increased people’s interest in this set.

In my opinion, Upper Deck’s idea of printing cards on hotel room keys for promotional purposes makes for a more unique souvenir.
