Braves Collection: Chuck James

2008 Upper Deck #42

I was convinced. Chuck James and Horacio Ramirez were going to be the next Tom Glavine and John Smoltz. Truth be told, they couldn’t even be our next Mike Bilecki. Chuck was non-tendered by the Braves and is currently without a major league job. He’s also out of baseball for 2009 anyway recovering from a torn rotator cuff. I hope he comes back and figures it all out. For another team.

I love full bleed photography. I’m a sucker for almost any set with it. 2008 Upper Deck is nice … it is just too bad that it is so damn hard to read the name and team information. That silver blends right in.
