2015 Upper Deck Football is one of four products the company will release on Wednesday, offering collectors a glimpse of some of the players whose names will be called in the NFL Draft.
It’s the company’s second football set of 2015, following the recently released Inscriptions set.
Quarterbacks Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston will have signed cards in the product. Mariota is on the packaging for Upper Deck but will also be featured on Panini’s products.
A full checklist is below.
The base set will feature 45 standard cards including some former greats in their college uniforms along with 170 Star Rookies. The Star Rookies, falling 2-3 per pack, will have 40 short prints (one in every 12 packs) and some super short prints, falling one in every 120 packs. There will be black and white photo parallels (one per case and numbered to 10). Some Star Rookies will also have a checklist of 20 short print photo variations, falling two per case.
Upper Deck is promising on card signatures for some of its autograph subsets including UD Authentics Rookie Signatures, falling one in every other case and the more common Rookie Letterman Signatures, manufactured letter patch cards numbered to 75 or less. Other autograph sets include A Cut Above and College Football Heroes. Unsigned College Football Heroes will fall one per 16 packs. Autographed versions of the Heroes will be tough, falling one in every 5,680 packs, and featuring college stars of the 1990s and 2000s.
Upper Deck will pay homage to some of the traditions of college football with College Tribute Manufactured Patches (at least four per case) including those highlighting the Vol Navy, USC Song Girls, the Commander in Chief Trophy, the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, the Auburn Tiger Walk and others.
Predictor cards return with Upper Deck offering a chance to win some special card sets. The Predictor cards will feature the first quarterback, running back and wide receiver drafted. Pull one and if your player is picked first at his position group, you’ll win one of the exclusive card sets.
