B-List Celebrities Galore Sign for 2007 Upper Deck Spectrum Baseball

Although the concept of putting celebrity autographs in sports products isn't a new one, Upper Deck has taken it to a new level with "Spectrum of Stars" found in 2007 Upper Deck Spectrum Baseball. Here's a list of the (mostly B-list, but cool nonetheless) signers:

  • Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch)
  • Todd Bridges (Diff'rent Strokes)
  • Corey Feldman (The Goonies, Stand By Me, License to Drive)
  • Lou Gossett, Jr.
  • Josh Duhamel
  • Fergie (Redemption)
  • Leif Garret
  • Kristy McNichol
  • Lori Petty
  • Jeff Conway
  • Catherine Bach (The Dukes of Hazzard)
  • Ed O'Neill (Married With Children) (Redemption)
  • Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters)
  • Michael Anthony Hall (The Breakfast Club)
  • Tony Burton
  • Mia St. John
  • Tiffany (80s singer)
  • Linda Blair (The Exorcist)
Some autographs will also be inscribed, much like several celebrities did in Donruss' cross-brand "Fans of the Game" set from a couple of years back.

Let's hope that few are redemptions and those that are are already in-house, unlike the mess that Upper Deck ran into inserting Jamie Foxx redemptions around the same time he won his Oscar. Collectors are either still waiting or have been given lame replacements.
