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. He had a hand in creating some of the most beloved characters in the Marvel Universe and spun stories that are beloved by fans around the world.
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.
Build a better trading card. That is the simple principle on what Upper Deck was founded upon. Today we continue to innovate and work to create the highest quality trading cards in the market. Spawned from that continual drive and innovation comes the new Signature Kicks cards that will make their debut in the soon to be released 2013-14 Exquisite Collection Basketball set. Cards like this from Upper Deck prove there has never been a better time to be a Michael Jordan collector. Enjoy this first look at just some of the amazing cards autographed shoe cards that will be available in this release. These cards are catered directly to the sneaker collector as we used classic collectible shoes popular with sneakerheads in creating these cards. The cards will be randomly inserted into packs and available at hobby shops throughout North America on November 5, 2014.
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!
And in case you have never seen Todd Gurley in action, check out this highlight reel from the 2013 season.
While most fans know Michael Jordan for what he did on the basketball court, other have grown to know him for what he does on the golf course. Trust and believe he brings that same competitive drive to the game of golf. Take for example the time a fan bet him in Lake Tahoe that he couldn’t hit the green, and of course, Michael was able to come through in the clutch.
As a spokesman for Upper Deck, Michael Jordan has autograph memorabilia and trading cards from his basketball career, but he also has some content included in Upper Deck golf sets. The company brought back golf cards in 2014 and fans have loved releases like 2014 SP Authentic Golf, 2014 SP Game-Used Golf and 2014 Exquisite Collection Golf because there is the opportunity to find some Michael Jordan content in packs. Recently we were able to conduct a signing session with Michael where he signed some truly incredible golf combo cards from the Exquisite Collection Golf set, take a look!
Art cards have always played a key role in many trading card releases, but Upper Deck has taken them to another level with 2013-14 NHL® Ultimate Collection “Masterpiece” cards. Upper Deck worked with some very talented artists to create hand-painted, one-of-one “Original Masterpiece” cards of athletes that are just incredible. Fans can find them randomly inserted into packs of Ultimate Collection.
Upper Deck also used the imagery from these cards to create a set called “Signature Masterpieces” which uses the same great artwork for an autograph parallel of these cards. We hope fans enjoy the beautiful set and the release when it comes out this week!
