    Upper Deck Mystery Cuts Thread

    Over the past 7 years I've acquired a small UD Mystery Cuts collection, picking up cards either with personal significance and/or were just "cool". This week I received my 5th cut and wanted to show them in hopes others might also share. Here we go!

    Vic Morrow: I'm a huge Twilight Zone fan and Morrow is infamously remembered for being killed while filming a scene for Twilight Zone: The Movie in 1982.

    Bing Crosby: His White Christmas album is by far my favorite of the season, being played by my Dad non-stop growing up.

    Michael Hutchence: The lead singer of INXS that passed away in 1997 at the age of 37. "Never Tear Us Apart" is one of my all-time favorite songs and I was thrilled to find this card, despite the last name being misspelled (thanks, Upper Deck).

    Jack Dempsey: A great looking cut of the World Heavyweight Champion from 1919 to 1926. I enjoy being able to read some of the words on the other side of the paper identifying it as some kind of bus manifest form.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Thanks, guys! This is an odd set to collect as the only stipulation for being included was the signer be deceased. There aren't a ton of these cards out there but I'd enjoy to see what other people own.

    Great looking card! Weaver starred in "Shadow Play", one my all-time favorite episodes of The Twilight Zone.

    The Heston is signed beautifully. I'd like to see some modern autos done with a fountain pen.

    Vic Morrow is also the a-hole coach of the a-hole team (The Yankees) in Bad News Bears. I swear in little league a lot of coaches tried to emulate him more than Walter Matthau.

    That's a great collection. So many subjects of those cuts are "who?" but you've got a nice range of subjects and they look great. Great sigs.

    Agreed and that would be a cool take on a modern auto set. Of course, they would need signers to take their time and put some pride into how their autos look.

    Thanks! Morrow was hilarious in Bad News Bears, I need to watch that again soon. Also, he was/is the father of actress Jennifer Jason Leigh.
