Upper Deck Featuring Bat Cards of Joe Jackson

For the first time since 2001, Upper Deck will feature bat cards of Shoeless Joe Jackson in 0ne of its products. The 2012 Goodwin Champions set will feature the Jackson bat cards, which was secured from a game-used bat Jackson used in his barnstorming days.

Upper Deck will be including a limited quantity of game-used bat cards of one of the most polarizing figures in baseball history – “Shoeless” Joe Jackson.

Upper Deck was able to procure an authentic game-used bat from Shoeless Joe Jackson that he used during his barnstorming days in the mid-1920s. A portion of this historic piece of lumber was used to create a limited run of two separate cards (a single swatch and a very rare multi-swatch variation) within 2012 Goodwin Champions. These truly historic artifacts will be inserted randomly into packs for collectors to find when the product releases on August 14.
