CC: Crisis on Infinite Teams

The latest card to be released depicting CC Sabathia as a Milwaukee Brewer in some fashion comes from the 2009 Upper Deck Ballpark Collection.

2009 Upper Deck Ballpark Collection Stat kings Quad Swatch (w/Hoffman, Santana, Garza) #288 (082/500)

He shares the stage with a bunch of other pitchers, with Hoffman being perhaps the most interesting co-subject. These two guys passed like the proverbial ships in the night, with Trevor arriving less than three weeks after CC signed with the Yankees.

Other than that, I suppose this card is part of the subset "Dudes Who Used to Play With Other Dudes, But Who Now Play With a Completely Different Set of Dudes." The choices on this card are a little weird, with Santana and Garza not having pitched for the Twins since 2007. There's another CC card in this set that still has him on the Indians. Woe to the blogger who organizes a box/case break of this stuff and has people sign up by team. Sounds like a nightmare.

Sabathia has been dominant all year, and so its no surprise that he has continued that in the post-season. After the All-Star break last year he was the best player in the National League for the Brewers.

not one of them is pictured with the team the swatch is from. Is Upper Deck unable to get current photos? This is just ridiculous, that makes 8 teams represented on a card of 4 players.
