2002 Upper Deck Baseball, series 2. One of the smallest "Series" that has been released by any company over the years. 245 cards is also an odd number for a set of cards. Why not bump it up to 250?
Anyhow, this set was finally completed on Wednesday with the addition of card # 521.
Val Pascucci is a big man. 6'6" 265 lbs. Drafted in the 15th round by Montreal in 1999, Val got his first card 3 years later in the 2002 set. Pascucci did not play a major league game until the 2004 season, when he had 62 ABs for Montreal. Val didn't get another shot in the majors until 2011 with the Mets.
Val even spent a couple of years in Japan (05 & 06), and has to his credit 251 minor league HRs over a 14 year career.
Glad that this set is finally out of the way...just 7 more sets to finish to reach the goal of 25.
Thanks for reading, Robert
