Upper Deck Confirms Retail Exclusive SPs in 2010 Upper Deck Baseball

Today Upper Deck confirmed that they've included a handful of short prints as retail exclusives for 2010 Upper Deck Baseball. Wal-Mart packs have a Sarah Palin and a Pete Rose card while Target packs have a "Shoeless" Joe Jackson and a Yankees tribute highlighting the handful of World Series victories shared by teammates Jorge Posada, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte.



Upper Deck's press release didn't offer specific odds, but did promise they were "super-rare." I'll hold back a snide remark but that doesn't mean I'm not thinking something. 
Seriously, though, what's with this obsession with Sarah Palin. At least when Obama shows up on a card, he's President. Palin's on some news station and gets mad at Family Guy. She seems more like a political version of Paris Hilton.

I don't like seeing any political figures in baseball card sets. We get too much of that stuff shoved down our throats every day. Baseball cards are supposed to be an escape.

As for Palin, she can't even explain why she believes what she believes. She is a complete twit of a human. A lightweight who talks in circles until people lose interest or interrupt.

If that 2012 card comes true, I'm moving to Canada!

Upper Deck gives us Palin, Yankees and two middle fingers to MLB properties, and Topps gives us Code Redeeming Madness.

UD is sooooo boned...

Regardless of what the cards are, it's cool that they give retail some perks, just like Topps is doing with the 1951s.

Since the Palin card is talking about winning in 2012, shouldn't it really be one of those stupid Celebrity Predictor cards instead?
