Upper Deck Throwback Thursday Create the Caption Promotion: LeBron James


Today we had a fantastic interview with CBS 8’s Kelly Hassesdal; covering all the great happenings that have been going on lately at Upper Deck. She chatted with our president Jason Masherah about all the exciting happenings around Upper Deck’s 25th Anniversary and how different it is to open packs of trading cards today.



Since it’s Throwback Thursday let’s go back through Upper Deck’s history and take a look at an awesome media day that we had with UD spokesman LeBron James. In July 2010, James gave an interview at his first-ever autograph-signing session with Upper Deck Authenticated (UDA) as a member of the Miami Heat, the beginning of a new chapter in his basketball career. With the 2014 NCAA® March Madness games starting today, I am sure we will see some memorable moments in several college athletes’ basketball careers!


So let’s put up a photo of that historic moment and see if our fans can come up with some great captions for Throwback Thursday! What might Upper Deck have been asking LeBron and what might LeBron have said to Upper Deck? Please share your comical caption to this card for your opportunity to score six (6) 2013 SP Authentic College FB packs AND one (1) 2014 Upper Deck 25th Anniversary Promo Set featuring none other than LeBron James!

Lebron “Before we get started I’m just wondering if you have any bigger chairs? This one makes me feel like a giant”


UD: Why Miami Lebron?

Lebron: Have you seen Ohio’s beaches?!? Exactly! Hahaha


LeBron where were you when you opened your first pack of Upper Deck in 89?

Preschool after I dunked my milk carton over little Jimmy.


UD: “So, really, Miami Heat huh?” LBJ: “Ya, wanted to set the (card) world on fire with their logo on everywhere”


So Lebron, now that you’ve gotten your throne, what will you do next?


Lights, camera, act…WAIT! Before we start here…My question to you is if I retire from the NBA can I go to Michigan State and win a title? It’s not too late is it? I want to win everywhere I go! I’m KING JAMES!


Interviwer: “So Lebron, why Upper Deck? Lebron: “To be the best you have to sign with the best!”


UD: Why did you choose Miami as your next NBA team?

LJ: Because I wanted to add to their fire power and burn the shorts off the rest of the league using “THE HEAT”!


UD: Can you tell is where “South Beach” is?

Lebron: Miami Beach man, its warmer than Cleveland


UD:LeBron, as a child opening packs to pull your heroes of the game, how do you feel now that children will be opening packs to pull your card.
LeBron: if a child opens a pack and smiles when he gets my card, then I am truly a champion at that moment.
