Below is the early autograph checklist for Upper Deck's apparent answer to Allen & Ginter, 2009 Goodwin Champions Baseball. I do have to admit, the possibility of getting a Michael Jordan autograph, even if it's super slim, is intriguing. Poker champs like Evelyn Ng - not so excited. But that's the A&G formula, so I'm not surprised in the least.
The design leaves good space for both the signature (on card!) and a nice picture. The clouded background of the Jordan looks super nice, although Jeter and James look a little too Photoshopped.
There's two things to remember when going through this checklist:
1) These early lists often change and often become much weaker. That being said, the main signers are Upper Deck spokesmen so the chances of the Jordan disappearing are unlikely.
2) The best signers are often the hardest to find.
Each box of 2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions will have one autograph.
