It helps kick off the pre-release of the new Legendary™ Encounters: An Alien™ Deck Building Game which Upper Deck is debuting at the show!

Upper Deck’s NHL® Ultimate Collection is always a favorite with serious collectors and the 2013-14 version will definitely have fans fired up. We have so many cool elements of the product to show, we are going to have to do it in chunks. Today the focus is on the legendary players and you got a taste of what Ultimate Collection would be like when Jeremy Roenick visited UD headquarters for a signing session. Now we wanted to show some of the other awesome cards in the set from other legendary hockey stars. Check out these live images from the product pack-out!

There’s no athlete hotter right now than LeBron James so when Mike Tyson found himself at the largest sports collectibles show recently, he wanted to get a gift for his kids. He asked show promoters to help him find a LeBron James jersey and after finding a few items that seemed a little suspect, they came right to the source at Upper Deck as we have an exclusive agreement with LeBron.

We worked to identify something very unique his kids would enjoy and came up with the LeBron James signed & inscribed “King James” jersey. And as you can see from “Iron” Mike’s reaction, it looks like we scored him the perfect piece! We hope his children enjoy!

Early on in the career of Tiger Woods, media began reporting on, “The Tiger Effect.” They talked about how Tiger was not only doing great things for himself, but increasing interest in the game, increasing tournament purses, increasing sales of golf equipment, increasing the amount of training professionals put into their game and encouraging a whole new generation of kids to pick up the clubs and play.

And just as Tiger Woods has done for golf, so has Landon Donovan done for the sport of soccer in the United States. He has been America’s shining star and our opportunity to tell the world, “We can play this game and we can win!” With Landon playing for the stars and stripes, you always felt like the USA had a chance. With that he gave us the kind of moments that give you goosebumps and make you proud to be an American. Thank you Landon.

Thank you for showing Europe that American players can succeed in places like Everton.
