2009 SP Authentic Baseball Preview

Posted by houstoncollector on July 2, 2009

Although I’ve already done a preview of 2009 SP Authentic baseball, today, the folks at Upper Deck have put some new card images up on their Facebook page, and I want to pass the love on to you!

While I like how the player images pop from the card, with the faded background, I’m less of a fan of the white border, although I realize that it’s been a trademark of SP Authentic for years.   While on some of the card images, notably Cole Hamels and Dustin Pedroia, the white text of the player name fades into the white of their uniform, making it hard to read at least from these scans, I’m told that the final cards will, of course, have foil for the names, making this less of an issue.    I’m also not entirely sure I’m too hooked on the fading of the colors on the left corners, for that matter.  Hopefully we’ll have more information on this product before its September launch date.
