A True “Mystery” Cut

If the card gods asked me what cut signature would make a good addition to my collection, I’d have to say Connie Mack.  I’ve been watching a lot of Mack cut autos pop-up for sale, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet on any of them.  Tonight I came across this 2008 Upper Deck SP Mystery Cuts Mack auto which features the partial signature of someone else.  Upper Deck doesn’t mention who the other person is, but I’m guessing they had to be important if they signed the photo too.  On the other hand, that person could’ve just been a fan and wanted to put their signature next to Mack’s.

So who is this mystery person on the right?

In Upper Deck’s attempt to compete against Topps, they have created a “Mystery Redemption” program kinda like how the Topps Finest redemption cards work.  Upper Deck put these mystery cards in their 2008 SPx product.  Today Upper Deck annouced that card number one in this rookie redemption set is Jay Bruce, which is autographed.  Looks pretty cool.
