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.
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.
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.
