Rookie Autographs

Each card is serial-numbered to the production figures listed below. Please note that all exchange cards expired September 18th, 2010.

NOTE: Cards #113 (Clayton Kershaw), #124 (Carlos Gonzalez), and #147 (Max Scherzer) all packed out as exchange cards that were never fulfilled by Upper Deck. It is believed that Upper Deck never got around to fulfilling these redemptions before losing their MLB Properties license in 2010.
