2000 Upper Deck Ovation

From BaseballCardPedia.com
Jump to: navigation, search


2000 Upper Deck Ovation is an 89-card set released in March, 2000. Like the previous year's well-received Ovation set, each card is embossed to look and feel like a baseball. Ovation featured the first Upper Deck card of longtime UD spokesman Ken Griffey, Jr. as a Cincinnati Red -- albeit a photo of Griffey holding a Reds jersey at a post-trade press conference. The last 29 cards in the base set are short-printed.

Ryan Anderson card

Ryan "The Space Needle" Anderson (Card #70 in the Ovation set) was a highly-regarded pitching prospect in the Mariners organization who never threw an inning in the Majors due to injuries and poor performance. After the 1999 season Anderson was placed on the Mariners 40-man roster allowing Upper Deck to produce a card of him. However, before the 2000 season Anderson was taken off of the 40-man roster forcing Upper Deck to pull his card from Ovation. Some Anderson cards did make their way into packs -- usually with the logo of NASCAR embossed on it. Anderson's card is not considered part of a complete set, and it is unknown if Anderson was included in the Standing Ovation parallel.


20 packs per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $3.99). Hobby only.

A Piece of History Autographed

This set is an autographed partial-parallel with each card serial-numbered to the player's uniform number.

NOTE: Ken Griffey, Jr. was traded in the off-season from Seattle to Cincinnati, and while Upper Deck was able to depict him as a Red in the Ovation base set, they were not able to for the A Piece of History Autographed set. With his familiar uniform number 24 already retired by the Reds, Griffey was forced to change to #30. But because Griffey had already signed his allotment of cards for the Ovation product before his trade, he is still depicted as a Mariner in the A Piece of History Autographed set and it is still hand-numbered to only 24 copies.

Super Signatures

Each Super Signature card is hand-numbered to 100 copies and available in the following parallels.
