Upper Deck has signed the hottest young golfer in the world to an autograph and memorabilia contract. Rory McIlroy autographs will appear on products through a deal with Upper Deck.
Trading card collectors can look to capture McIlroy’s first-ever Upper Deck trading cards and autograph cards during the 2013 season, but memorabilia collectors won’t have to wait that long. Upper Deck Authenticated will be offering a full line of authentic signed collectibles from Rory McIlroy after his first signing session currently scheduled for mid-September.
Upper Deck will offer photos, hats, polos, shoes and pin flags of McIlroy as well as its Curve and Breaking Through pieces. UDA will also offer some select signed items that were worn during tournaments as part of the company’s Suite One-of-One program. Pricing for McIlroy’s items is still in the process of being finalized.
“I wanted to partner with Upper Deck because when my fans are looking for my collectibles, it is important to me they are getting the real thing,” said Rory McIlroy, two-time PGA major champion.
Rory McIlroy fans can look for his first Upper Deck Authenticated items in October, 2012. Collectors can also expect to see a wide variety of Upper Deck trading cards from McIlroy in 2013.
