    A Nearly Complete Set - 2001 Upper Deck Legends of New York

    I've been working on this set for a long time. I recently picked up a hobby box and a blaster box, so I figured it was time for a group photo. I also recently found a sell sheet for this, which I was pretty happy about.

    Fantastic set! A unique release that still stands out after 20 years. Good luck with the remaining ones.

    Just picked up that Dodger triple auto recently. It was faded, which was tough to take, but I figure those don't come around a lot. Maybe it will be a place holder if I can find a nicer copy later. Always liked that set. Wish I had bought more when it was new.

    Holy crap, that's one of my favorite sets of all time.
    Those pictures make me drool.

    I have the base set and several of them autographed that I sent to players through the mail back in the day. Mostly Yankees.

    Thank you! I hope the last few don't take another 19 years.

    I saw that, along with one other. I honestly don't know what the previous owners did to get the autos in that condition. It is a nice card, so enjoy it until your replacement arrives one day

    This is also in my top 5 favorite sets of all time, especially as a Yankees fan. The felt on the base cards was so polarizing to some people, but I loved it.

    You know it! I plan to update this as more arrive. I just hope that they turn up on eBay or another auction house.

    I am really impressed by how much of that set you've put together.

    2001 was the pinnacle of cards. I canít think of an argument that could persuade me otherwise

    Wow that's great. I covet the Mathewson jersey, too. UD made a couple of them in various brands, but I think the design from this set is the best. Can't remember the last time I saw one, though. Probably at least 10 years, though I'm not hardcore searching for them.
