Top 100 Cards of My Collection #32 2009 SP Legendary Cuts Hank Greenberg Cut Signature

When Upper Deck came out with SP Legendary Cuts in 2001, the set was revolutionary. Never had there been an entire insert set dedicated to autograph cuts of deceased MLB players. Since it's inception, it's always been a popular product, and though UD no longer has a MLB license they still produced an SP Legendary Cuts set this year, just without images depicting the players. This card comes from the 2009 set and really the only knock is that there is no picture of former Tiger great and Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg. This is one of the 14 Greenberg cuts in the set. Greenberg was a major star in the 30's and 40's and probably would be an even bigger star in his own right but he only played 9 full seasons as he served the military for 45 months. This is definitely the best cut signature I own in my collection and even despite the lack of a picture it's still an amazing card of one of baseball's greatest stars of the early years.
