2007 UD Holiday Inn
While staying somewhere this summer, I saw that Holiday Inn was going to have a collector's set of cards. I was pretty excited about the prospect. The truth is, I've never really grown up when it comes to my Indians card collection, so any time there is even a hint of a chance that I can score some "oddball" Tribe cards, I'm giddy.
I never did buy any packs, and now that I have these two, I'm kinda glad. The cards have nice player pics, a kinda cool border, and no foil (which these days makes the card a true collectible!). The back sports a similar border, the card's number of 60, team logo, some stats from previous years, and a highlight from the previous year. Oh, and there's also the UD Kids card code... :-)
So, what's my complaint? The card makes no mention of Holiday Inn at all. Not even in the fine print at the bottom. This feels like a set of cards that Upper Deck made, and at the last minute decided to offer it to whatever hotel chain would accept a tie-in. I mean, even a (heaven help me) small foil logo would have sufficed. Nope. Nothin. The only inkling is that the card is "of 60."
That's my only complaint. After all, at least UD included the Tribe!! :-) And any card that I need for my collection is a welcome one - any day, any kind!
