Description

1994 Upper Deck is a 550-card was issued in two series of 280 and 270 cards, respectively. There are number of topical subsets including Star Rookies (1-30), Fantasy Team (31-40), The Future is Now (41-55), Home Field Advantage (267-294), Upper Deck Classic Alumni (295-299), Diamond Debuts (511-522) and Top Prospects (523-550). The design of 1994 Upper Deck Baseball was originally intended for 1994 SP, but Upper Deck decided to released it under the "Upper Deck" name and issue SP under a new design.

The Hobby edition of 1994 Upper Deck was regionally distributed, with three different versions (East, Central, and West) of the Diamond Collection (Series One) and 1994 SP Previews (Series Two). Where Hobby dealers and distributors were located, dictated which inserts were available. For example, collectors in the middle of the country got packs where it was possible to pull a valuable Michael Jordan Diamond Collection insert; but collectors along the East Coast were stuck with Cliff Floyd and Lenny Dykstra. The regional distribution scheme was not popular with collectors or dealers, and was discontinued after this year.

Rookie Cards include Michael Jordan (as an baseball player), Chan Ho Park, Alex Rodriguez and Billy Wagner.

Many cards have been found with a significant variation on the back. The player's name, the horizontal bar containing the biographical information and the vertical bar containing the stats header are normally printed in copper-gold color. On the variation cards, these areas are printed in silver. It is not known exactly how many of the 550 cards have silver versions, nor has any premium been established for them. Also, all of the American League Home Field Advantage subset cards (numbers 281-294) are minor uncorrected errors because the Upper Deck logos on the front are missing the year "1994".

Ken Griffey, Jr. Jumbo Checklists

Measuring 4 7/8" by 6 13/16", these four Ken Griffey, Jr. cards serve as checklists for first series Upper Deck issues. They were issued one per first series Hobby box. Card fronts have a full color photo with a small Griffey hologram. The first three cards provide a numerical, alphabetical and team organized checklist for the basic set. The fourth card is a checklist of inserts. Each card was printed in different quantities with CL1 the most plentiful and CL4 the more scarce. The backs are numbered with a CL prefix.

  • CL1 Ken Griffey, Jr. Num CL
  • CL2 Ken Griffey, Jr. Alpha CL
  • CL3 Ken Griffey, Jr. Team CL

Autographs & Game-Used

Retail Autographs

These four cards were randomly inserted into retail packs. Upper Deck produced 3000 copies of a Ken Griffey, Jr./Mickey Mantle card, had each player sign 2000 copies (1000 individually and 1000 with the other), then randomly seeded them in Series One retail packs. The Griffey/Mantle dual autograph is considered by many to be one of the greatest autographed baseball cards of the 1990s. For the second series, UD had Alex Rodriguez sign a limited number of his "Upper Deck Classic Alumni" base card. Production of the A-Rod card was never disclosed by Upper Deck.
