1998 Upper Deck Collector’s Choice Richie Ashburn Tribute

Set Type: Primary
Card dimensions:
2½” x 3½”
Additional Information: The name assigned to this one-card set results from the fact the card utilizes the ’98 Collector’s Choice design. However, Beckett simply lists this set as “1998 Upper Deck Richie Ashburn” while SCD lists it as “1998 Upper Deck Richie Ashburn Tribute.” According to the 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards (p. 1567), Upper Deck issued this tribute card for Ashburn as part of its participation at the Philadelphia SportsFest in May 1998.

  1. On the 10th anniversary of Whitey’s death in 2007, I left one of these cards in a sealed toploader on his grave with a note in remembrance. (I had two of them and it looked like a nice card to leave–I hope it’s not worth a lot of money!)

    • For what it’s worth, the 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards lists it at $4.00. Given the cost of flowers, it wasn’t a bad way to leave a remembrance.

  2. Nice nod to his Whiteness on his birthday.
