Hey baseball fans! Need even more reason to get out to The Cliff this weekend to see No. 2 Kentucky play No. 1 LSU? UK had an important announcement yesterday.

The UK Baseball team is distributing the first of three editions of the 2012 trading card set. They will be handed out to season ticket holders starting with the upcoming series this weekend against LSU, at 6:30 on Friday. The series will continue on Saturday at 2:00, and Sunday at 1:00.

To cash in, season ticket holders should visit the promotions gazebo under the main grandstand where your postcard will be stamped. If extra sets are available after all season ticket holders cashed in, they will be distributed at future games.

The second set of cards will be distributed during the Florida series on May 3-5, and the final set during the Alabama series on May 11-13.

Go Bat Cats!

    Why has it taken this long to come up with this idea? Why isn’t it done with basketball?

    they had trading cards in the late 80’s for college teams. uk had their sets with football and basketball teams combined. it only lasted one year before the ncaa said that they could not do that , and then they were off the market.
    most major colleges had them at the time .
    anyone want to buy some, i’ll dig em out.

    I wonder if they will issue a cease and desist order if these end up on Ebay? #8isgreat!
