1990 Upper Deck Baseball Errors Checklist

The following card was acquired on November 8, 2010 and was scanned using the Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 and watermarked in January of 2011 before I implemented Photoshop automation. This scan was initially published on the article covering this particular card but it’s being re-used here because the Ben McDonald 1990 Upper Deck RC was issued first as an error, which was actually just really good marketing since Ben McDonald was the big prospect at the time so it, no doubt, helped drive demand for the product.

1990 Upper Deck is the company’s sophomoric release in the baseball category. It’s just as stunning as its predecessor and was very popular when it came out. The set contains a variety of photo variations and some interesting errors of key cards. Notable RCs in the set include: Ben McDonald, Juan Gonzalez, David Justice, Larry Walker, and Sammy Sosa.
