If they didn't make endless parallels, they'd just make endless perpendiculars...

Is there a parallel set for the 2008 Upper Deck Yankee Stadium Legacy box set?

The top card is what comes from the dime-a-dozen 100-card boxed set. The bottom card I finally received today after watching it on eBay for the last year. It sat there at $2.99 for the longest time, and I didn't really want to bother since shipping was another $2. Just last week, though, I got about $50 from my Sportlots sales at the same time that the card was on sale for $1.49 with free shipping, so I had to pull the trigger.

After a bit of research, it turns out the bottom card is from the "Final Season" boxed set that was exclusive to QVC.

The main differences are the obvious gold-tinge to the whole front. All of the foil is gold, rather than silver, the upper background is the muted instead of dark blue, and the lower area has a cream colored background with gold pinstripes instead of the blue/grey. The main differences on the back are the lighter text and the absence of "BOX SET" under the set name at the bottom.

The seller, loret2154, doesn't have the other Winfield from the set, but she does have another 28 cards from the set.

Here's someone selling the complete set, with lots of extra details:
