When Baseball meets NASCAR

I wasn't aware of these cards when I found them on listia.  They aren't so much baseball cards in a NASCAR racing set, but a card manufacturer touting their exclusive signees across product lines.  They were part of an eight card lot that featured a Jeff Burton card.  I guess that these are icing on the cake.

Reggie Jackson (card # 134)

Apparently Upper Deck signed Rusty Wallace as a spokesperson.  Their other spokesmen welcomed him through some made up text on the back of the cards.

Ken Griffey Jr. (card # 136)

It was not just batsmen that Upper Deck employed, but some quarterback.

1995 Upper Deck Racing
Joe Montana  (card # 135)

Not content to have a man that shared his name with a city and one that shared his name with a state, they went with a man that shared his name with a country.
