In case you missed it, we had some visitors in the building yesterday. To let you in on a little behind-the-scenes secret, our office started buzzing like crazy when Chula Vista’s Park View All-Star Little League World Series Champions arrived; it was like getting a visit from rock stars, honestly. Seeing people more than half your age, from your own community who play a sport you love and won a world championship in is pretty powerful stuff.
Introspective emotions aside, it was a great visit. The champs were greeted by Upper Deck staff, got to take home all kinds of goodies, and most importantly, posed for their own baseball cards. We have athletes in here all the time, and don’t get me wrong, guys like LeBron and Kobe are always smiling and enthusiastic when they visit. But you could tell these kids were extra excited to get a tour of our facility here in Carlsbad, and get their likeness on some Upper Deck cards.
Check out some of the photos below, and click here to see a video of the event from our local CBS San Diego news coverage. In the clip, you’ll see the process of creating the card, and a sample of the final product!
