Ultimate Checklist: 2009 UD Icons Detroit Tigers

To be honest, I don't really care much about this set, but here's the checklist I've been able to gather so far through my typical eBay perusal:

27 Curtis Granderson
67 Justin Verlander
73 Magglio Ordonez
80 Miguel Cabrera
102 Rick Porcello
129 Ryan Perry

Porcello and Perry are Rookie cards numbered to 999. The regular base cards appear to have a silver parallel version as well. There are also a few inserts numbered to 999:

IC-JZ Joel Zumaya
IC-CA Miguel Cabrera
IC-GU Carlos Guillen

Some relics:

IC-VE Justin Verlander
IC-CA? Miguel Cabrera

An "Immortal Letterman" manufactured patch card that spells out "MR TIGER" and is numbered out of 60:

IL-AK Al Kaline

And, most interestingly, what I believe is the first Rick Porcello autograph card since he became a pro, numbered to 100:

154 Rick Porcello



Ooh! Is that signed on-card?! Do you think that Porcello noticed that he was signing a picture of Ryan Perry?


Oops. I know that it can be confusing for those poor, overtaxed card companies, but you should really strive to get the right picture of players, especially in this day and age of digital photography and especially when that player is the organization's #1 prospect.

As always, I'll flesh out this list as more information becomes available. Any updates, and the rest of the 2009 checklists can be found right here, a link to which is also provided in the sidebar.

  1. this IS upper deck after all... the company that puts Andy LaRoche on Adam LaRoche's cards.

  2. I am pretty sure the LaRoche brothers get confused in their own homes.

    This is a huge prospect we're talking about here.
