Mets baseball card of the week: 2001 Upper Deck Legends Yogi Berra

Yogi-Berra

Here’s another Yogi Berra Mets baseball card that my friend Greg found for me. It’s from the 2001 Upper Deck Legends set, a product that contained a mix of retired legends and current stars.

Unlike most relic cards, which at least give the impression that they contain fabric swatches from a player’s jersey, this one clearly notes that it contains “an authentic piece of a pair of pants used by Yogi Berra during an official Major League Baseball game.”

While this is a very neat baseball card, I still have mixed feelings about destroying pieces of baseball’s past to make new baseball cards.

  1. I never really liked the cloth cards because they are awkward and I question the authenticity. I am almost positive that 99 percent are fake.
