Nice Card File - Double jersey card

2002 Upper Deck Double Game-Worn Gems

I just got this card today. It was packaged with a jumbo pack of 2006 Upper Deck for $9.99. That works out to 30 cents/card. I don't mind getting a double jersey, limited edition, serially numbered card for 30 cents. Especially since the card books at $15.

But there are some curious things about this card.

1. Although this is a card issued by Upper Deck in 2002, it features jerseys worn "at the 2000 All-Star Event".

2. The name of the card says "game-worn" but the back says the jerseys were worn at an "event". It doesn't say they were worn in the All-Star game. Besides, I don't remember that the American League players wore red jerseys in the game. So how can they be game-worn?

3. The card features Jermaine Dye and Tim Hudson both of whom appeared in the 2000 All-Star game. Dye, however, was still with the Royals at All-Star time. He was traded to the A's in late July.

Is it just me or does that look a lot like Geronimo Berroa?
