Shrinking sales, particularly in the highly competitive arena of trading card games, have resulted in a wave of layoffs at Upper Deck.  According to one terminated employee the cuts were company-wide and affected about 50 people.  The cuts reportedly included R. Hyrum Savage, who was the Brand Manager for the New Hobby Games division and Brand Manager for the Vs. system, and Sean K. Reynolds, who was working as an IP developer at Upper Deck.
