2008 Yankee Stadium Legacy checklist

Ok, I know. Mirror sets are worst thing ever and make baby kittens cry. If you don't like 'em, skip the post. I like cards of retired players, so I don't mind having UD's products infested with these things. When this set was first reported, I wondered if this set would be SuperStar City or if we'd see some working class players in there. Of course the set came out and I forgot all about my curiosity because I was all agog over Topps. Then Wax Heaven posted a photo of the whole shebang being dispayed in some cool plastic cabinet thing and my interest was piqued again. I know the idea of collecting a massive 6,661 card set seems ridiculous, but for OCD hardcore collectors who like this stuff but don't have several thousand bucks to try to get them all there are at least three other ways of collecting it:

1) collect every card of a single player
2) collect one of each player in the set
3) since the set is divided up into decades, collect a 'team set' for each decade.

This isn't even counting all the bizarre ways to collect, such as buying each card for the game played on your birthday, collecting only cards where the Yanks were playing your favorite team or only collecting the games the Yankees lost (sure to be a favorite of Red Sox fans). I was kind of interested in option 2 above so in order to find out who exactly is in this set I had to look over the checklist. So I went to Upper Deck's website, found the Yankee Stadium Legacy page and looked up the checklist.

That's when the problems started.

First of all, in order to view the checklist you have to register with My Upper Deck. Not a huge deal for me because I've redeemed a bunch of cards online there before. I log in and go to the checklist page. Here's what you'll find there:

A 6,661 card set is viewable only on pages of 20 cards each. You can also only view the cards by each decade. When you finish going through the cards in one decade and change to the next one, you stay on the same page number for some reason. For example, the last page of the 20's is page 24. You change to the 30's and you're suddenly on page 24 of the 30's checklist. This wouldn't be that bad if there was a button you could click on to go back to the first page, but there isn't. Three or four clicks later you get to page one and you get to click 40 more times or so to get through the cards in each decade. I was also randomly logged out a couple of times during the process for some reason. Let's just say it's not a very user friendly design.

Every so often I'll get a bug up my rear, decide I have to get some obscure checklist and waste several hours looking through my book and searching on the internet to find what I'm looking for. This was one of those times. So, after clicking several hundred times and typing out the checklist by hand, I figure I may as well share this info with my fellow collectors who might be interested in this stuff. There's probably one or two of you out there. Those two just got the checklist off of Beckett months ago, but that's a cold corporate propaganda checklist and this is a labor of love. Before you think I've gone completely mad, let me assure you that I did all this while listening to How to Be Hip by Del Close and this fantastic interview of Jean Shepherd so it was actually a very relaxing and enjoyable task. I like, just got hung up on this checklist, man. Dig?

With no further adieu, here's the entire checklist as painstakingly culled from Upper Deck's website. editorial notes (and this checklist needs 'em) will be in italics.

So now the fearsome six thousand card set has been trimmed down to 74 if you want just one card of each player. Or you can go for all 235 Yogi cards, or even cut the thing down to 10 cards if you want to focus on just one decade team. Not too difficult a chore. Most people couldn't care less about this set, but for those who do there are reasonable collecting options.

I'm a sort of half-assed Yankees fan, but I still don't quite understand this: why was Kevin Maas so well represented? He had a flukey month and a half or so once upon a time. I don't profess to be a huge Yankees fan, however. They were my dad's team, so I've rooted for them for that reason, but the Cards are my real team.

Thank you so much for taking the time to get this info. and putting it on your blog.

UD's website is terrible.
I can't believe they even have one that people can attempt to navigate if it's as bad as theirs.
It reminds me of a website from 1994 or something.

I still can't believe that Rickey wasn't included in this set. I of course prefer him with the A's, but there had to be a conscious decision to leave him out of the 1980's decade set, but I have no idea why.

Wow, what a post! That must've taken forever to write out. Great info and much easier to use that UDs website.

All those guys who were removed have now returned to the website checklist. You caught them mid-return, it appears.

Oh, but Babe Ruth is no longer listed.

So I ordered a set of 100 cards that are 2008 upper deck Yankee Stadium Legacy but the cards do not come close to matching the checklist. Do you know if there was a separate 100 card set with the same name? Also the set I have only has players but nothing on games played. Any help you can give is appreciated.
