Andrew McCutchen had a very brief appearance in Upper Deck products before they lost their license to produce MLB official cards in 2010.
That brief window produced a very rare short print Signature Sensations autograph though that despite it's simplistic design still ranks as one of my favorite autograph cards of Cutch in my collection.
And with over 150 unique autographs of Cutch, thats saying something.
I think I like the relaxed spring training game photo used more than a regular season game photo.
Upper Deck was always known for their innovative photography on cards. It ultimately lead to brands like Topps Stadium Club and Fleer Ultra.
Stadium Club has been a let down for Cutch cards over the years since the brand came back and I wish that there would be more fun entertaining cards of Cutch like a few of my favorite players I collected growing up.
Some of my favorite players from my youth included
Gary Sheffield (one of the greatest under appreciated hitters of all time)
Andy Van Slyke
And Kenny Lofton
I will show off a few of my other Cutch Upper Deck cards in the future, but I definitely miss the candid photos of Upper Deck.
