So Far, So Great! Fans Embracing 2013 Ultimate Collection Football from Upper Deck!

By

This week Upper Deck released 2013 Ultimate Collection Football, a super-premium gridiron release featuring rookie stars and legendary players. And so far it seems to be a hit. Take for example what happened at Nick’s Sports Cards in Dallas, Texas. Debbie Redwine at the shop shared with Upper Deck via email, “I sold three packs to a customer who proceeded to buy every pack in the case and LOVED it! He pulled an Eddie Lacy one-of-one booklet autograph rookie card! You guys are hitting home runs on all of your products as of late and we couldn’t be happier for our customers!”

The premium look and feel of the cards coupled with hard-signed autograph content on all single-signed cards have fans fired up. On a hobby message board a fan said, “Can we please take a moment to applaud UD for the fact that it looks like pretty much everything in this product is on-card?”

Some nice cards have made their way to online auction sites like eBay thus far. Take a look at the type of cards available in the set:

i want to start off by saying you can never go wrong with upper deck, ever since i was a little kid in 1989 upper deck has always had the best card designs, inserts,rcs and memorabilia hands down the best in the business, every year you guys step your game up as this years no different, I would love to bust a box of Ultimate Collection, just looking at the pics the swatches and patch autos look sick , and I love the retro look on the some of the autos, I just no if I would get a box im pulling a Marino or Elway!!!

and I just wanted to say thanks alot for always putting out the best product for the real collectors

We had a lot of fun reading these and will definitely be running another promotion like this again in the future so stay tuned fans. You’re definitely honing your haiku skills.

Congratulations to Jordan Jaskiewicz on being selected to receive the pack to open with his brothers. We loved that you will be sharing the experience with them and we are also curious to see how you will decide who gets the fourth card… Enjoy and thank you to everyone who participated! Again, we will do this again soon!
