    I would guess Upper Deck

    but no clue as to the player.....

    perhaps Griffey Jr, since he was the first ever player featured on their 1989 #1 inaugural card

    Is this a trivia question? According to their website, Press Pass is responsible for the GU madness:

    Press Pass Highlights

    1993-Press Pass introduces event-used redemption insert (lugnuts) in its first race card product.

    1993-Press Pass incorporates thermography technology in Tribe Comic Cards.

    1994-Press Pass introduces year-long interactive insert cards labeled "Cup Chase" in its race card product. (The concept continues in 2002!)

    1995-Press Pass launches first basketball card product.

    1996-Press Pass launches first football card product.

    1996-Press Pass pioneers event-used memorabilia trading cards.

    1998-Racing Champions acquires Press Pass brands.

    2002- Press Pass introduces Total Access, an interactive trading card guide and checklist of the entire set of trading cards on a CD.

    I believe the actual first one was:

    no it is not a trivia, I was just wondering, damn I never would have thought that it was presspass, but I guess they had to find a niche...

    I know, really surprising to find that out! They are popular with their NASCAR cards, but I don't like their sports cards at all...

    same here! Wonder how Press Pass came up with this idea while Topps, which has been around for decades, didn't??

    I remember when CE first did those game-used ball inserts... I dunno what year that was though.
