2000 Upper Deck Legends Baseball
The game-used phenomenon is starting to get out of control. Products have been released with one game-used card per box (and more are on the way). At least one set has been scheduled with one memorabilia card per pack! The problem with most of these sets are their checklists (few of the game-worn cards are from star players). Such is not the problem with 2000 Upper Deck Legends Baseball. This set is loaded with autographs and memorabilia cards and few of them would be considered a disappointment.
With at least one autograph per box and a game-used card in every other box it would be hard to not enjoy opening a box. Packs are selling quickly between $5 and $6, but I'd expect them to go up as the product's popularity grows. Beyond the big chase inserts, this set isn't half bad. You'll find a unique mix of rookies, stars, retired stars, and Hall of Famers in both the base set as well as the other insert series. Upper Deck tried to give the Game Jersey (or Pants) cards an old look with a sienna coloring that I'm not wild about, but if you grab yourself a piece of Lou Gehrig or Mickey Mantle you probably won't care about the color.
