Just because one person completed Upper Deck's mammoth Yankee Stadium Legacy set didn't mean others stopped trying.
Upper Deck announced yesterday that a second person, Chuck Sauter of Pensacola, Florida, has finished putting together the 6,661-card insert set that commemorates every game ever played in the old Yankee Stadium. He follows Tommy Baxter of Little Rock, Arkansas, who pulled off the feat last November.
Sauter's story is interesting because he is a lifelong Baltimore Orioles fan who originally intended only to collect cards of the games that featured his favorite team. He eventually decided to tackle the whole thing, but it does drive home the point that there are a lot of different ways to appreciate the set without trying to accumulate all of the cards.
Sauter will receive the same prize package as Baxter, which includes a trip to New York to see the Yankees in their new home and a chance to meet Derek Jeter. That leaves three sets of prizes left for anyone else who's still thinking about taking on the Yankee Stadium Legacy challenge.
