Upper Deck’s Athlete Relations Team had a great signing session with “Iron” Mike on Monday, July 2 in Las Vegas,Nevada where he signed a variety of Upper Deck Authenticated memorabilia and some new trading cards as well. Take a look at some of the awesome photos from the private signing session!
For the Tegata Piece, UDA gets Mike to share is actual hand print.
Next Mike stamps each print with his own custom "TYSON" stamp.
Then Tyson signs each piece.
The final piece will be framed and matted like this mock up. Note: The actual piece will feature a black hand print with a silver signature as shown above.
