Collectors who pull these winning exchange cards from 2007 UD Ultimate Baseball, 2007 UD Black Baseball or 2007 UD Exquisite Rookie Signatures Baseball will receive one of these very special cards. To create additional excitement about the program, collectors will be able to choose which card they will receive on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore, time is of the essence for collectors in terms of receiving some of the most intriguing cards.
The list of cards available represents some of the most captivating personalities in the hobby, paired with their equally amazing counterparts. The entire list of cards available is shown below:

To date, none of these cards have been redeemed even though the program began in stealth with the release of 2007 Ultimate Collection Baseball.
