Jordan Signing Lots of Autos For Upper Deck

Upper Deck announced plans for its 2011 All Time Greats Basketball product on Wednesday.  The  checklist features only twenty different athletes, but is heavy on big names and includes one Michael Jordan autograph for every six boxes.

The company is promising a “limited production run” and hasn’t released pricing information but one can reasonably expect they won’t be cheap.

Each pack–really a tin– will hold four cards (one autographed) with just three boxes per case.

Boxes are ‘player specific’.  All cards in the tin will pertain to that player.  The entire checklist is made up of only 20 players.  A window in the top of the tin will show which player is in inside once the outer box is opened.

There will be rare ‘mystery’ boxes with a mixture of players, however.

There’s a 200-card base set in the product, set for a mid-June release.

Upper Deck is also highlighting its Legacy Book Cards featuring a living legend paired with a deceased cut signature:
Michael Jordan & Pete Maravich
John Wooden & Bill Walton
Chick Hearn & Magic Johnson
Hakeem Olajuwon & George Mikan
LeBron James & Pete Maravich

All autographs are hard-signed and hand numbered.

Checklist:

Michael Jordan
LeBron James
Julius Erving
Magic Johnson
Bill Russell
Larry Bird
Steve Nash
James Worthy
Jerry West
John Havlicek
David Robinson
Alonzo Mourning
Hakeem Olajuwon
Walt Frazier
Derrick Rose
Clyde Drexler
Grant Hill
Chris Paul
Larry Johnson
Anfernee Hardaway
