Card of the Day: Wayne Gretzky ’99-’00 UD MVP Draw Your Own Card

Upper Deck had a good idea with this set.  Collectors could send in their own artwork, and the winners had their drawing placed on a card.

Happy Birthday Bob Uecker & Wayne Gretzky!

Did you know that Bob Uecker and Wayne Gretzky share the same birthday today?  Thats what you call an odd couple.  The only reason I know this is because today is my mom’s birthday too.

Gretzky is probably one of the most popular hockey player’s in history, and even if you don’t follow sports, I bet you’ve heard his name.  He has thousands of cards, tons containing autographs and relics.  Uecker on the other hand has very few cards, 20 at the most.  His rookie can be found in 1962 Topps.  As far as I know, he has no certified autographs or cards containing relics.  Uecker is one player I think collectors would love to see autographs and relics of.  Judging by the sale of his cards, he seems to be very popular.

Card of the Day: Wayne Gretzky ’08/’09 UD Ultimate Collection Auto/Jersey

Many consider Gretzky to be the Babe Ruth of hockey.  Many baseball collectors know him as the one time part owner of the most famous baseball card in the world.  Either way you look at it, hockey fans would love to pull a Gretzky autograph from one of their packs.
