2008 UD Baseball Heroes- Full Review

Baseball Heroes has a long history in the Hobby and has always been one of my favorite inserts. I like the game specific theme to the cards that bring the history of the game to light. On a typical card back, with the detailed statistics, it’s easy to forget that these men, play, a game. 162 of them to be exact, and each one is different and unique from every other. It always amazes me that over the course of a full season of watching Baseball Tonight the number of times you hear seasoned, veteran reporters, with years of journalistic experience, quote the phrase, “Well, I’ve never seen that before.” So the detailed game synopsis on the back of Baseball Heroes cards, serves as a reminder that baseball is more than just stats, it’s about a game, the game of baseball.
