Tugging on Superman’s capeJuly 9, 2008 at 11:57 pm | Posted in My Cards, Upper Deck | 7 Comments
First, I want to point out that I really, really hate Upper Deck’s pointless “A Piece of Shi History” set. It will be a central focus of my upcoming post slamming Upper Deck’s recent products. That said, there is one (and only one) card in the set that I wanted to have since the second I first saw it. It is the “A Piece of Hollywood” card that contains a piece of Superman’s cape from Superman III. Now, I usually hate these non-sports cards in baseball card sets, and Superman III is one of the weaker Superman movies, but this is still a piece of the actual cape that Christopher Reeve (or as Upper Deck calls him on the card back, “Christopher”) wore while playing one of the legendary superheroes of all time in the movie. Being able to own that is pretty damn cool!
I bought the card on eBay over the weekend and it arrived in the mail today:
It is definitely one of the most interesting cards in my collection now.
