Card #146: 1999 Upper Deck 10th Anniversary Team #X23

YEAR: 1999
BRAND: Upper Deck
SET: Upper Deck
SUBSET/INSERT: 10th Anniversary Team
TEAM: Cleveland Indians

For Upper Deck's 10th Anniversary they released this insert set using the 1989 landmark design and celebrated the three best players over the previous decade at each position.  Sandy Alomar Jr. was apparently the third best catcher in that time, so he, Mike Piazza and Ivan Rodriguez all received cards in this set.  It is fitting that Alomar was selected as his rookie card in the 1989 set was a highly sought-after card early on.
