Autographs, die-cuts and the usual letterman patches are part of the attraction with Upper Deck’s latest football release.
Upper Deck is releasing its 2009 SP Threads Football card set this week. The 260-card collection features the top NFL players as well as the top rookies from the 2009 NFL draft.
As always, the “Rookie Autograph Letterman” insert collection remains the set’s key driver. On average, Upper Deck promises two autograph cards and three foil numbered memorabilia cards per box.
“Upper Deck created this product with the intention of meeting the demands of the current economy by delivering a high-quality product at an affordable price,” said Brandon Miller, Upper Deck’s Football brand manager. “We are especially proud of the fact that we are able to give everyone a chance to pull a Rookie Autograph Letterman card, whether they are casual or die-hard collectors. To be able to pull two autograph cards and three numbered memorabilia cards per box on average, helps to provide collectors with the value they are looking for when opening new products.”
One insert entitled “SP Superstar Die-Cuts” features past, present, and future NFL stars such as Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson, and Peyton Manning. All of these players have signed what will be a 1 of 1 autographed die-cut card.
Upper Deck has also included up to 100 NFL rookie cards featuring players like Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford, Beanie Wells and the recently signed Michael Crabtree.
Upper Deck’s 2009 SP Threads Football has five cards per pack with 16 packs per box.
Singles, boxes and cases are already available on eBay.
