2003 Upper Deck Play Ball The Yankee Clipper: 1941 Hitting Streak

I've always liked the 2003 Upper Deck Play Ball Yankee Clipper 1941 Hitting Streak cards. The 56 card set features one card for each of the games in Joe DiMaggio's MLB record hit streak. The cards feature a box score from each game and have a manufactured relic feel to them.

I've toyed with the idea of putting the set together on several occasions, but I recently decided to go for it. I'll be on the look out for them at good prices and would be open to trades. Not in a big hurry, but would look forward to picking these up when I find them.

Special thanks to Fuji for #17, #24, #26, #36, and #44.

  1. That should be a fun set to collect! His streak ended on my birthday, so now you got me curious to find out if the last one in the set comes from that day or not.

  2. Very cool. I have a few of these box-score embedded cards from other sets and they're absolutely beautiful.

    1. I agree with Nick. I think I have two box-score cards, one is in my Cubs Frankenset, and they are really cool. Good luck!

  3. You helped me with one of my sets... I'm going to help you with this one. Waiting on confirmation, but I should have a few of these to send your way.

    1. Just picked up #36, #44, #17, #24, and #26 for you. I'll ship them sometime. Possibly next week? But you know me... could be as last as mid February.
