I've been away almost a week and things seem to be pretty quiet on the card front. The big news of the day is Upper Deck and the MLB Players Association coming to terms (links are everywhere, I'm in a busy cafe with limited time). My automatic thought shifts towards why this wasn't a joint announcement with both MLB and the MLBPA. Sure, with their renewal Upper Deck has the players but without the MLB on board we could be looking at a return to Airbrush City.
I'm only speculating here and could easily be wrong, but if Upper Deck and MLB were close to an agreement, doesn't it make sense to hold off any announcements until then? Again, just thinking sort of out loud here with little knowledge - inside or business-side.
All right, back to vacationing.
