    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:

    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 thought it was Upper Deck in 1997 with that Piece of history card with gwynn and griffey.

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