Description

1997 Upper Deck is a 550-card set released in two series of 240 and 250 cards and two 30-card "Update" sets. Series One, containing the first 240 cards were released in January, 1997; while Series Two (cards #271-#520) was issued in June. Every base card is "game dated" on the front with the exact time and place in which the photo was taken.

Each series was supplemented by two 30-card update sets that were only available via a wrapper redemption offers. The "Postseason Highlights" set (cards #241-270) could be had for 10 Series One wrappers and $3 shipping & handling. A similar offer for the "Traded" set (cards #521-550) was offered for 10 Series Two wrappers and $3.

1997 Upper Deck is notable for having the first game-used cards in a mainstream baseball product. It should also be noted that the "Griffey's Hot List" subset in Series Two (#415-424) was short-printed -- one of the first instances of a set featuring cards that were intentionally SPed for the sole purpose of adding secondary market "value."

PowerDeck

Randomly inserted into a limited number of Series One Hobby boxes was a Ken Griffey, Jr. PowerDeck "card." An experiment into multimedia trading cards, each "card" is a die-cut compact disc containing a brief interview with Griffey. In order to listen to the interview, a hole in the middle of the "card" had to be punched out -- therefore damaging the "card" -- and placed into a special adapter that was included with the "card."

Predictor

This 30-card set was randomly seeded into Series Two packs at the rate of 1:5. Unlike previous year's Predictors, the fronts of each '97 edition had four scratch-off gold "bats," behind each is a specific feat. If the player meets of exceeds that feat in a 1997 MLB game, it can then be redeemed (along with $2 for shipping & handling) for an upgraded "Totally Virtual" parallel. Unlike previous Predictor sets, all 30 cards were potential winners.
