There are a variety of reasons why Peter Forsberg is in the Hockey Hall-of-Fame. It wasn’t just his physical style of player or great vision on the ice that set him apart from the rest, he was a winner. He hoisted the Stanley Cup twice during his career and just had an uncanny knack for making the people around him better. He keeps busy today and we get excited when we get the chance to sit down with him for a signing session.
Recently we completed a session with the retired great where he signed some items for upcoming projects, but primarily worked on some outstanding redemptions including these incredible cards from 2013-14 NHL® The Cup. We will be receiving everything in next week, checking for quality, and then packaging them up from there. We thought fans who may be holding these cards would like to see what may be coming their way!
He is the world’s greatest basketball player and he has returned home to Ohio to try to do something he was only able to do in high school there; win championships. All eyes are on LeBron James this year as he works to make his homecoming a joyous one by delivering a title to Cleveland. And Upper Deck remains the exclusive home of LeBron James autograph trading cards and memorabilia.
In an effort to continue to deliver incredible content to our basketball fans, we were able to secure LeBron James authentic game-worn St. Vincent-St. Mary high school jersey. Upper Deck scored the jersey at auction last November and quickly put into plans a way to have it incorporated into the company’s most premium basketball release; 2013-14 Exquisite Collection Basketball.
Some of the most sought after cards in the set each year are the tribute cards to the 2003-04 Exquisite Collection Rookie cards. We thought this would be the perfect home to first use this incredible jersey. There are 35 total cards available and as a special preview for the release we are pleased to show imagery of all the completed signed cards! Don’t miss 2013-14 Exquisite Collection Basketball when it releases this November!
There are over 7,000 characters in the Marvel Universe and that number continues to grow. When it comes to Marvel “characters” however, not many are more well known that Stan Lee.

As Upper Deck continues to work with Marvel, it is important to us to deliver fans autographed cards of this Hall-of-Fame talent. Check out an image of the great Stan Lee signing for the Upper Deck Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy release.

We’ve told fans for awhile now that Upper Deck’s USA Football box sets represent an incredible opportunity to own cards of tomorrow’s stars today. Many savvy collectors jumped on them, happy to find cards of highly touted football prospects like Jameis Winston, Kevin Hogan, Imani Cross, T.V. Williams, Anu Solomon, Devin Funchess and more! One USA Football alum who is having an incredibly stellar season thus far is Todd Gurley of the Georgia Bulldogs.
The former track star is coming off a career day against the Tennessee Volunteers with 208 yards and two touchdowns. Many believe Gurley is a front runner currently to win the Heisman trophy which would mean USA Football alumni would win the award in back-to-back years (Jameis Winston won the award last year).
Football prospect collectors can score the first licensed trading cards of Todd Gurley in 2012 Upper Deck USA Football box sets, as well as rare insert cards featuring autographs and game-worn memorabilia. Check out some of the incredible cards that can be discovered in those sets!
