As all seasoned baseball card collectors know, if they hope to get their hands on cards of the newest baseball diamond prospects, they need to look no further than USA Baseball’s annual box set. Upper Deck has once again partnered with USA Baseball to produce one of the year’s most sought-after releases. The box set includes outstanding content from the 2009 National Team, the 18U National Team and the 16U National Team. The much-anticipated box set is scheduled to hit store shelves this week.

Every 70-card set includes seven total autographs in every box, including five on-card, hard-signed autographs. Collectors will also discover three game-used jersey cards in each box, including rare, autographed game-used patch cards in many instances.

“We are pleased to once again partner with Upper Deck to produce the 2009 USA Baseball Box Set,” said David Perkins, chief operating officer of USA Baseball. “By featuring the first baseball cards of some of the game’s top rising stars in the box set, we hope to provide collectors and fans of USA Baseball with a product they will appreciate and value.”

“The USA Baseball National Teams’ box sets are extremely popular every year, but it was important to us to make them highly collectible by offering cards of some of the best youngsters in baseball,” added Gabriel Garcia, Upper Deck’s Baseball brand manager. “To have a collection that features the likes of backstop extraordinaire Bryce Harper, pitching phenoms Jameson Taillon, Karsten Whitson and Drew Pomeranz, and up-and-comers like Christian Colon and Bryce Brentz will appeal to any baseball fan, young or old, male or female.”
