Below is the list of members who have donated to the Bench Charity Drive. This list will be updated each time new arrivals come in. Top donator gets a prize package supplied to us straight from Upper Deck. Others may donate prize packages as well, details to be determined later. A huge thanks to anyone who has donated, every card helps!:) Even if they are doubles we can use them for trades later on to fill holes in the massive 6661 card set.

A link to the cards we still need is located above on the blue site navigation bar.

Thanks for the update.

Not yet, cards just started arriving this week so it's just a drop in the bucket so to speak at this point. I should have a list up and ready to go within the next week.

02-27-2008, 07:55 PM
So only the top donator gets a prize and then maybe others do? I think that might discourage people from donating that may only have one or two to send in b/c they see others w/ such large numbers. Maybe you could do a large raffle and everytime someone sends in a card their name goes in there. I understand it would be rather large but that might encourage some people w/ only a couple of cards to donate them. That way the top donator still has the best chance to win but everyone else has a chance as well. Maybe the top donator gets a small prize but the raffle winner gets the prize package or something along those lines?? Just some thoughts from the outside looking in since I haven't even seen 08 UD anywhere, lol.

I think we were kind of hoping people would donate for the good of the cause more for the prize:)

By the time we finish this project, I'm guessing it will be about 12-14 months from now, there is a lot of time to tweak the rewards depending on how the list gets. The big prize was donated by Upper Deck though and they requested it go to the largest donator--anything after that though will be up for possible change. I'd love to be able to do something for anyone who donates anything but that is beyond the means of a site that doesn't generate income. Most of the prize packages for the site are supplied by the Mods out of their pockets/collections, including this one except for the main prize of course. You raise some good thoughts though and will keep those in mind as time progresses and we see how the trend goes.

JJJ5278
02-27-2008, 08:26 PM
Yeah I didn't mean to sound like people were only donating for the prize b/c I do plan on sending any I get but only for the cause not the prize. I am an ACC fan so I saw a lot of Jimmy V growing up watching ACC games. I was just thinking someone w/ one may say oh well I'll just keep it or something like that. Anyway its still a great idea and I hope I can come up w/ some to donate!! I'll also try to find a large enough plastic tote to put the names in for the drawing, lol.

I was just thinking of something similar. Would anyone be willing to organize a trade program where benchies who don't have any YSL's to contribute (or who are tempted to just sell them on ebay) can donate some tradebait to entice others to give theirs? It would also be a convenient way to unload some unneeded cards and help the cause.

Just wanted to give a big thank you to those that have donated cards so far. In the first post of this thread I have added the link to the want list, we are at 23.4% complete already for this first wave!:)

Given the massive amount of mail I am getting in these days I ask a few things to make this process go a bit faster. Either post up donations as a "send free cards" with myself or include a note with your user name in the package. I want to make sure everyone gets credit for anything donated but it's hard to track down member names if I only have a return address to go by.

Thanks for asking:) The biggest thing, other than the actual donations, would be word of mouth about this project. Right now I've had two "non-Bench" donations come in but would like to see a lot more. The more the word gets out to the local card shops, card shows, friends, etc the easier this massive project will be.

If we grab a few yes but we are not including the GU subset as part of the complete set, only the base for that purpose. This is because of the big name players that are involved in a GU set like this.

At this point, I would like us to focus on getting the base cards. The GU cards would be "icing on the cake," but we will consider the set complete with just the 6800+ base cards even if it is not a master set. Now if you can get any cards (base or GU) donated or really cheap by all means pick them up! Be sure to take copies of our flier with you to pass out to dealers and mention that it is for charity. Hopefully a lot of dealers will just donate the cards

It has to do with the link on that banner opening up another window- i.e. a pop-up.

If you view the source on your problem browser, you may notice that the img tag for the banner has been replaced with some funky looking code.

I don't remember the fix, but if you Google the funky code, you should be able to find it. If you need help figuring out what the funky code is, let me know.

leon

The ones that were in the first wave are in the Beckett pricing. Thanks to the wide range of players in that release we pretty much know the prices for all. I must say that these ended up booking for higher than I had hoped but they are great players and Yankees so I guess I should have expected it.

Ruth--$8
Gerhig--$6
DiMaggio--$6
Maris--$5
Mattingly--$6
Jeter--$8
Clemens--$5

All the rest are $3 each. Going to be one expensive set once it's finished!:)

I think I would need alot of help on that. Do not know if it makes any difference but I am running Windows Vista and it has been more of a
pain in the neck. I am at work now and the banner is fine, this is just on my home PC.

That's a great idea but I would suggest you wait with prize cards if that's okay. This project is going to take until early 2009 to finish and to have those cards with me for so long makes me nervous. I would hate for anything to happen to them while in my care for that long.

Don't we need the code to register our set here? I would think that it would be of more value at auction if it is verified.

Thanks,

The main selling point for the set will be it's completion and size. I don't have the time to check and see if all the ones that we already have still have good codes or not. From the auctions I've seen on Ebay not many mention if the codes are good or not still and I know some members acquire the cards that way.

How long does the contest run anyway? Might be over by the time we get this bad boy done:)

Thanks,

the codes do nothing but register for a " sweepstakes " like i said they are reusable because say like the card i used as a reference every card made of that one specific number has the same code so everyone can use the same code it has nothing to do with verification of anything

they can only be used on 2 websites

http://sports.upperdeck.com/baseball/yankeestadium/

and

www.udkids.com

every card in this set has a different code on the back but all cards say of card 2846 will have the same code and all cards of 783 will have the same code
but the code on 2846 will NOT be the same as the code on 783 so we can share codes with each other and enter the " sweepstakes " and maybe someone on the bench will get lucky and win one of the 3 prizes

the deadline to register the cards on the legacy website is

Entry Deadline: Thursday, January 01, 2009 at 12:00 AM PST!
and all they are on this website is for entries into the sweepstakes as for the udkids website each card has a random point value that kids can enter the same codes and exchange points for prizes

and before anyone asks NO the 2 websites do not run together so the codes can be registered on both websites and not change a thing i already have 160 codes entered (40th on the most cards registered ) and have another 60 to put in as well (which would move to in the top 30 ) i will share any and all codes i have with people who want to register and post some codes up as well heck i may try to do a master code list on this website and have it locked so people can send me the codes and i place them on the thread for us all to use if i can get a mod to approve it i will get it started immediately and update with any new codes once a week i am also getting codes from some other friends on a ud website so i am getting about 15 new codes myself each week just go and read the rules for the legacy website it explains everything very well

Game #1701 - 08/16/1944
The pic looks like some players on a boat in NY harbor looking toward the shore and an old NYC skyline.
The description on back says President Roosevelt gave the "green-light" to continue MLB play during WWII 500 MLB and 5000 minor league players joined the war effort.

Maybe it would sell for a lot because of mention of Pres. Roosevelt? I honestly can not identify anyone on the pic though. I also did not find ANY completed auctions for this card on eBay though.

He also gave me these below, but I noticed that they have a different Yankee logo from the others. These have the round logo with the bat and top hat whereas the others have the NY letters. It's also odd that these are all numbered multiples of 25. LMK if you still need these: 5450 5500 5550 5525 5600 5625 5650 6250 6300

Yes! All of those cards (including the cards in multiples of 25) are YSL cards and are all on our needs list! I have also noticed a few different YSL cards with the different logos on them. I *think* that UD used the different logos either for different decades or to corrispond with when the Yankees changed their official logo. Contact champs96ws and we *may* be able to put a link or at least a shoutout to your card shop on our official project web page. Please do post up all of those cards as "free cards" to Meliah as we do need them all! Thanks to you and your card shop!

I do not know what the YSL cards marked HM are. #3407 is listed as Roger Maris though. I assumed that cards like the Pope, boxing matches, and "Greatest Man Alive" were in this block: 1680-1729 are the only cards in the set that do not feature one player on the front, they are listed as New York Yankees in the checklist. I'm not even sure if that span has been released yet. If anything, if you have a Pope card sent it to Matt and let im see if we do need it!

One HM I have is Ford from an All-star game. These could be from special events held at the Stadium--like the All-Star game or Pope visiting. Best guess is all I have right now as I have no other info to go on yet:)

Did you read the article? You really took on a big job when you agreed to become Keeper of the Cards:

“It took nearly three days for a staff of four to pull each of the cards and then another two days for a staff of four to collate them in the proper order,” said Terry Melia, Public Relations manager for Upper Deck. “The display is an impressive way for us to showcase the enormity of the set. We had nine decades to cover, so each of the 18 drawers contains approximately half a decade’s worth of games. If placed end-to-end, the cards would measure 1,943 feet long! We are very excited about sharing this incredible set – and its special acrylic display case – with baseball fans at this year’s MLB FanFest.”

I did read that and trust me, I do not look forward to the day when I have to put these things in order. I should be doing that now I suppose but so much time is involved in just the trading of dups, keeping track of the want/donator/dups list is taking up most of my hobby time.

Hey, Meliah,

I have a question for you. I have a Maris and an O'Niell YSL that you already have in the set. Would it be more helpful to you if I try to trade them for cards you don't already have (figuring that I can probably get 4 or 5 lesser-known players for them that I could then donate) or to just send them in?
I don't know how much trading you're doing with the dupes you get in. Sorry if you've already answered such a question for someone else, I didn't feel like going through 7 pages of posts to see if someone else has already asked.

We've been able to trade a decent amount of our dups for ones we've needed to this point. That being said it's still easier if you were able to flip them yourself. Either way though I appreciate the effort:)

If you are purchasing lots off of E-Bay to help build this set, watch out for sellers that are breaking up the 100 card box set, and selling them as lots or singles. Be sure to check the description of the cards if there is no picture available, they will all be # at 100 or less. If there is a decent picture the cards have a blue border instead of the original brown tones.

Sorry to hear about the "d" problem Steve, I'm sure that is no fun.

When the set is complete then whomever is at the top of the list at that time will be the top donator. We are slowly gathering prizes though and have some more goodies set aside right now, hopefully will have more by the time this ends (which is at least 4-6 months away).

good as i would like to get as many as possible to send them all at once no sense in paying all the postage for small groups when i can send a large group

If I do win a prize...could you give it to the next person in line! Don't care about the prizes only about the cause (cure for cancer) and helping my fellow bench members. Best regards, David

Sneaky little Mod, thank you!:D

It was in the middle of so many cards I never noticed it until I took them out and started to put them in order--by that time I had no idea which package they came from because the donation list was already updated. Very nice surprise to find in there that's for sure:)
