Old School Hits: 2001 SPx Winning Materials Update Trios
Inserted into every box of 2001 UD Rookie Update was an SPx Winning Materials Update card. While the regular Winning Materials set featured bat-jersey, base-ball, and base-base combinations, the update set had dual and triple jersey swatches, with each swatch belonging to a different player. Both update variations were accompanied by a gold parallel limited to 25 copies. The combinations of players on the update cards featured teammates (as is the case with this card) or players of the same position (Clemens/Hudson/Nomo for example). I acquired this card the ‘Bay a few years back. Sorry Eric, but this is one Pettitte I can’t let go.

You’re killin’ me! Nice card – definitely cooler than the jersey combos we see nowadays (Pettitte, Jeter, Khalil Greene and Jake Peavy?).
