Upper Deck Throwback Thursday Create the Caption Promotion: John Havlicek

By

It’s Throwback Thursday so let’s go back through Upper Deck’s trading card history and come up with a fun giveaway. Many of you have probably heard the story of Foot Locker selling misspelled Ohio State Basketball jerseys this week; hopefully it has no type of superstitious effect on the team’s performance during the 2014 NCAA Basketball Tournament Sweet Sixteen!

So let’s put up a throwback card and see if our fans can come up with some great captions for the card! Please share your comical caption to this card for your opportunity to score a 2013-14 UD Black Basketball Mini Box Set!
