â†µâ‡¥To celebrate their big win, all 12 members of the team known as the Blue Bombers received their own Upper Deck baseball cards. Each player received 250 cards at an autograph signing and pizza party held at the Hall of Champions at San Diego's Balboa Park.â‡¥ â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µâ‡¥"This is great," shortstop Andy Rios said to a local TV station. "People have been asking us for autographs ever since we won, but I never thought we'd get our own Upper Deck trading cards."â‡¥ â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µThey have 250 copies of their own presumably not-for-sale pre-rookie cards and they have the corporate sponsorship shout-outs down? They're totally going to be the coolest kids in their middle school. And Luke Ramirez will probably be able to sell his cards for billions of dollars when he breaks every baseball record ever. (That's totally happening, too. Did you see how good he was in Williamsport?) â†µâ†µ
