Card of the Day: George Washington 2008 Upper Deck SP Legendary Cuts Hair Cut Signatures


Card of the Day: George Washington 2007 Allen & Ginter Hair Relic


You just pulled a 1/1 hair cut signature card………

And now you have to wait.  This past week Upper Deck released their 2008 UD SP Legendary Cuts baseball product.  It didn’t take long for a collector in California to pull the George Washington 1/1 DNA Relic Cut Signature card.  That sounds great doesn’t it?  After reading about the pull on the Beckett Message Boards I found out something interesting.  Upper Deck’s new hair cut signature 1/1 cards of famous Americans are inserted as redemption cards.  I was so surprised when I saw this.  What?  George Washington didn’t have time to sign the card?  Is Babe Ruth too busy shooting his new Nike commercial to sign?  When looking at Upper Deck’s press release it doesn’t say anything about being inserted as a redemption card.  Who knows how long people will have to wait for these?  If I were to pull one of these out, I would sell that redemption so fast.  They look like awesome cards, but I didn’t know there was a little catch.  The only reasonable excuse I can see Upper Deck doing it this way is that maybe they wanted to protect these cards.  But in the past Upper Deck has inserted high end cards in their products that weren’t redemptions.

Things are starting to get hairy

Upper Deck annouced today that they have made 10 authentic 1/1 cut signatures with pieces of hair in them.  The people that are included are Babe Ruth, Andrew Jackson, George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and many other famous historic figures.  Looks like they are starting to copy Topps……. just a little.
