A Cardboard Problem a while back and it's a good thing, because these proved to be yet more cards we couldn't live without. Upper Deck Masterpieces provided a little dash of difference to the same old same old cardiness of baseball cards. Not vintage. Not shiny. A little pale, a little dark. The texture of vintage linen postcards. And yet. Hard to argue with the classic poses and the overall sense of care, of not rushing.
Night Owl's favorite cards, and it's got everything: the flying catcher's equipment; the focus and muscle of the athlete; the sheer determination in the player's face. This is not a thrown-together baseball card produced by a bored graphics department drone.
