The cards feature a postage stamp design. It was fine, I suppose. But they also have a variety of color shades; not fine. Ever wonder what Derrek Lee would look like if he played for the Reds?
Here you go.
What about Geovany Soto on the Rockies?
Would have looked like this.
There were six other active Cubs in the set.
The Cubs got gypped on the legends list, with only two. For the only time in the brand's run, Ernie Banks was left out. The short-printed legends were numbered to 550 (which is an unusual number).
The set in this form ended when Upper Deck lost it's MLB license after the 2009 season. It has come back as a high-priced set . The cards have no picture but a large cut signature. Who wants to drop $175 for a one card box? Not me.
So I guess I'm done with SP Legendary Cuts.
