1999 Upper Deck

Description

1999 Upper Deck is a 525 card set released in two series of 255 and 270 cards, respectively. Series One was released in December, 1998; while Series Two in May, 1999. With this set, Upper Deck celebrated their 10th Anniversary, and many of the inserts are based around this event.

Between the two series, there is a gap of ten cards; meaning, that Series Two begins with card #266 and cards #256-#265 do not exist.

It is believed -- but never confirmed by Upper Deck -- that the subset cards may have been slightly short-printed.

Distribution

Hobby/Retail: 24 packs per box, 10 cards per pack (MSRP: $2.99).

NOTE: Series One Hobby boxes contain 23 packs plus one 1989 Upper Deck Hi-Series pack.

Autographs & Game-Used

Ken Griffey, Jr. 1989 Autographed Buyback

Upper Deck had Ken Griffey, Jr. autograph 100 copies of his landmark 1989 Upper Deck card, and inserted them into Series One packs. To differentiate this card from an ordinary 89 UD card (and to confirm the authenticity of Griffey's autograph), each card contained an additional hologram.

10th Anniversary Sweepstakes

Randomly inserted into Series One packs were exchange cards good for various Upper Deck 10th Anniversary prizes. The Grand Prize being a one-on-one personal batting lesson from Ken Griffey, Jr. All cards have long since expired.

Upper Deck accidentally inserted three batting lesson cards, as opposed to only one. All three winners were able to meet Griffey, but none received the batting lesson.
