1992 Upper Deck #228 "Gold Hologram"

Card Review: 8.8 as far as I can tell this is the exact same card as the regular '92 Upper Deck, which upon further review deserves a higher rating than 8.8 (probably the best action shot ever put on a Wallach card).  But people keep listing these as the "Gold Hologram" version, and I'm a sucker, so I went ahead and bought one.

I'm not convinced that the gold hologram was intentional on the part of Upper Deck as some sort of rare short print chase card.  There's no denying it's a different color than the 109 '92 UD's I have (see below).  I haven't actually checked to see if any of them are gold now that I think about it, which probably would have been a good idea before dropping a dollar on this one.  In any event, it's gold, most are silver.  Maybe their supplier just sent some gold foil by mistake.  If any one knows for sure, feel free let me know in the comments.  For now it's getting listed as a unique card (I don't count "errors" as unique).
