2009 Goudey Baseball will try to carry on the success that this vintage themed brand has enjoyed since being reincarnated by Upper Deck only a few short years ago.

“Goudey Baseball returns this year to provide collectors with the classic 1930's retro-themed product, driven by the wildly popular ‘Sport Royalty Autographs' set," said Gabriel Garcia, Upper Deck's brand manager for Baseball. “This year's cast of ‘Sport Royalty Autographs' continues the grand tradition of providing the greatest athletes across all sports including Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Cal Ripken Jr. and Wayne Gretzky!"

Here are some other highlights of 2009 Goudey Baseball, which is currently scheduled for an April 28th release. Please note that the following highlights only apply to 2009 Goudey Baseball hobby products:

Mike Smeth is the CEO and Founder of The Cardboard Connection. After collecting baseball cards as a child, he took a 12-year hiatus from the hobby. One muggy summer day in 2006 he unexpectedly came across his childhood card collection while packing up for a move. He began sorting through them so he could sell them on Craigslist. Somewhere between the 3rd and 4th box, he rediscovered his passion for collecting and hasn't looked back since. You can find Mike on Google+ and Twitter @mikesmethcc.
