2006 Upper Deck Frito Lay

Set Type: Primary
Card dimensions: 2½” x 3½”
Additional Information/14,000 Phillies Commentary: Other than a perfunctory entry in SCD’s Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards listing a complete checklist, I am unable to find any information regarding this set. Ostensibly, it was distributed with Frito Lay products, but other than the fact that the set recycles the 2005 Upper Deck Trilo3y design, there’s literally no other information I can gather.

I didn’t even know about this set until a month or so ago when I encountered the Abreu card when running through one of my many eBay searches. It still amazes me just how often I am still just discovering oddball products years after they were released.

  1. Nice touch by UD to use the exact same picture on the front and back and just change the background….

    • Yeah, UD was rather lazy with this one — couldn’t even be bothered to put a Frito Lay logo on the card. Sadly, this isn’t the only time UD recycled the 2005 Trilo3y design — I’ll be getting to that one as soon as I receive the representative card in the mail (just ordered it yesterday).
