Brag Photo: 2012 Goodwin Champions 1888 Original Art Cards

Working at Upper Deck we come across some pretty amazing collectibles from time to time, but every once in awhile you see something that is really just amazing. Such is the case with the 2012 Goodwin Champions 1888 Original Art cards. The 50-card set consists of ten copies of each of the original 1888 Goodwin Champions cards including legendary baseball players like Cap Anson and King Kelly. Here’s more on the cards from our very own Grant Sandground:

I wanted to get scans of some of these cards, but I realized as I carefully placed them on the scanner that my hands were shaking just from reverence of just how unique these cards are. It made me wonder what it will be like for fans who actually pull these cards from packs as I think they will be blow away by the quality of these miniature works of art. Take a look at some of the scans:

I love the original art cards, these are cards that a collector could display to complete a collection. I have talked with Jared Kelley on a number of occasions and our conversations often turn to the work he has done for Upper Deck, this is a labor of love for the artists.

I am amazed that these are going to be live pull cards, that is just so cool. Keep up the awsome work… hopefully some day I will have some serious luck and pull one of these cards… fingers crossed.
