No, I Will NOT Sign Your Card!

2009 Upper Deck #229 Michael Cuddyer

"Sorry, kid, but there's no way in hell I'm signing that card. Take a closer look there, buddy. What you have there is a gen-yoo-wine 2004 card featuring yours truly which just so happens to be of the Topps variety. That guy standin' o'er there, the one holding the camera see, is a photographer for the Upper Deck company, a competing baseball card entity. Now if I was to go ahead and affix my John Hancock to that there two-and-one-half by three-and-one-half rectangle of ink and cardboard, why, I just might get that Upper Deck contract yanked out from under me. And you and all of your little friends don't want that to happen, do you? Of course you don't, friend. So I'm going to have to hand it back over to you, sans signature, as the French would say, and you are going to run along back to your seat. Sorry, pal, but you're welcome to come on back with a card in your hand that has one of them shiny little hollygrams on the back."

"Next!"

Sepia enlargement sounds painful.

But it's soooo worth it.

A couple of weeks ago I featured a 1993 Jeff Bagwell Upper Deck card where he was signing a 1992 Topps card.

Funny you should feature this card on the same day Topps sues Upper Deck.

Upper Deck goes out of its way to feature a Topps card on one of its own cards and what does Topps do? Slap them with a lawsuit.

Ungrateful bastards.

I noticed this a while back. I attributed it to Michael Cuddyer being a secret agent!
