Upper Deck Masterpieces Aren't Dead Yet

It might not be around as a full-fledged baseball set this year, but it looks like the Upper Deck Masterpieces line isn't gone entirely. The beautiful piece of artwork shown above is an insert that'll be found in 2009-10 Upper Deck Basketball.

The early checklist shows a total of 35 cards in the set, although I couldn't dig up the insertion rates. I haven't picked up any basketball cards since Kobe was considered a youngster and the Grizzlies were still in Vancouver. That will likely change once these are released. 2009-10 Upper Deck Basketball is scheduled to hit shelves in September.

And, yes, I was under the impression 2008-09 was it for Upper Deck and basketball too.

I've wanted that card since the first second I saw it.

Speaking of Masterpieces, I have the better part of your 08 wantlist set aside for you - can you send me your address again please?

That looks different than the typical Masterpieces. That looks like a photo. Maybe tinkered with, but still a photo.
