Upper Deck aims to fill the football void in your soul with its SP Authentic set.
Upper Deck has launched its latest product: 2009 SP Authentic Football.
At just over 400 cards, this year’s Authentic release is easily the largest SP Authentic regular set ever produced by Upper Deck. It features one autographed memorabilia card and two additional autographed cards per hobby box, on average.
“Football card collectors look forward to Upper Deck’s SP Authentic release every year,” said Brandon Miller, Upper Deck’s Football brand manager. “As always, what’s extremely cool about SPA is that every autographed card is hard-signed. And the SP Authentic Dynasties cards include autographed manufactured patches featuring some of the game’s greatest juggernauts like the Packers of the ‘60s, Steelers of the ‘70s, Niners of the ‘80s and Cowboys of the ‘90s.”
The autographed card lineup includes: “Rookie Authentics Patch” cards (numbered to 999 or less including Matthew Stafford, Percy Harvin and Mark Sanchez); “Rookie Authentics Patch Parallel” cards (numbered to 25 including Knowshon Moreno, Michael Crabtree and Jeremy Maclin); and rare “Rookie Authentics Patch NFL Logo Parallel” 1-of-1 cards from the likes of Stafford, Sanchez, Maclin and more).
SP Authentic also pays homage to some of the game’s greatest players by including them in autographed inserts as “SP Immortal Signatures” (numbered to 25) including Hall-of-Famers like Franco Harris, Barry Sanders, Terry Bradshaw and Steve Young; and SP “Immortal Quad Signatures” (numbered to five) paying homage to standout receivers like Steve Largent, Jerry Rice, Fred Biletnikoff and Don Maynard all on one card.
