The Bell & The Mountain

If for no other reason, I enjoy the Upper Deck Artifacts set because of all the political/non-sports cards...

You wouldn't know it by the card but the Bell X-1 is a great orange color...


It is always surprising to me how many explorers of the "New World" weren't killed nearly immediately by the people that lived there. Juan wasn't one of the lucky ones...he died from a poison arrow in the shoulder.

This set is garbage, but these history cards are kind of neat. I'll take any card I can get of Ben Franklin.

Meh. They could make the non-baseball cards a little more interesting. In fact they could make the whole set more interesting. Or get rid of it forever.
