Card of the Day: 1997 Upper Deck Game Jerseys Rey Ordonez

While set singlehandedly made the hobby what it is today, the Rey Ordonez 1997 Upper Deck Game Jerseys card will always be my favorite game-used card of all-time.

Why you ask. Easy. Ordonez was one of the slickest fielding shortstops of all-time and Upper Deck thought he was going to be a big star so they out him in a set with Ken Griffey Jr. and Tony Gwynn.

As it turned out, this and his consistent string of Web Gems, were his only two claims to fame.
