It's now less than a month until February 3 - the launch of Upper Deck Baseball 2.0 (or 0.5, depending on how you look at it) where Upper Deck is set to release its flagship 2010 Upper Deck Baseball Series One. It's just three weeks until the scheduled release date of 2009 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection Baseball. But no pictures for either.
Upper Deck has done a solid job at providing the content for both sets but without knowing what they're going to look like, there's no way I can decide whether to go for it or not. If this were a regular year, that'd be fine. But it's not. Without the Major League license logos and such are out of the question. So do we get Players Association jerseys, air-brushed action shots, studio portraits or some homo-erotic artsy thing like this:
I also find it interesting that there's been little info released about any of Upper Deck's additional 2010 plans other than the cross-brand Exquisite cards and the fact that Shoeless Joe is going to appear in 2010 Upper Deck Goudey.
All I'm asking for is a little nibble, perhaps something minor like say a base card design to get me excited. What do you say?
