The timing couldn't have been worse. My announcement regarding the new Beckett wrapper assignment was posted within minutes of the breaking news regarding the Upper Deck case. These things happen.
Thursday afternoon, Chris Harris from Stale Gum contacted me with a suggested change in our plan of action. Working together, we hammered out a plan regarding a new target: Major League Baseball Properties.
Much has been written about the recent proceedings, so I don't feel a need to go into specifics here. I'll get down to brass tacks. Here is what we need you to do.
1. Print out the MLBP Manifesto below. I believe you will find it competently crafted.
2. Sign the Manifesto and add your blog address, if applicable.
3. Gather any number of 2010 Upper Deck cards, and enclose them with the Manifesto in a package sent to:
Major League Baseball Properties
Attn: Ethan Orlinsky
245 Park Ave
New York, NY 10167-3000
Send this as soon as possible. MLBP needs to know how much of a slap in the face this is to collectors. They are going to get, as Chris put it, "Upper Decked." (No, not the kind you're thinking of.)
Cancel the Beckett action, there's a new enemy worth our ire.
