A New Jersey chiropractor has found one of the key prizes in an Upper Deck contest.
Dr. Thomas Haveron of Warren, New Jersey is the third winner of Upper Deck’s ‘Exquisite Experience’ Promotion.
According to Upper Deck, the chiropractic physician "is a very enthusiastic collector who loves the thrill of pulling something special". Haveron realized one of his biggest thrills recently when opening up a case of 2007-08 NBA SP Rookie Edition.
Upper Deck is treating four winners who pull special winning cards in its contest to an all expenses paid trip to Dallas where they will be part of the "pack-out" of 2007-08 NBA Exquisite. They will get to meet Upper Deck staff that developed the product and then assemble their own boxes of the super premium trading card line.
The invitees will have a set amount of time to grab five autograph and memorabilia cards of their choice made for the product and create their own personal pack.
“The ‘Exquisite Experience’ promotion has really captured die-hard collector’s imaginations,” said Chris Carlin, Upper Deck hobby marketing manager. “We’ve got three very excited collectors set to go for the mid-June pack-out and we’ll draw a winner from our on-line entries this Friday."
One more golden ticket is still out there.
"We’ve heard reports the final golden ticket from 2007-08 NBA UD Black has been found and is being sold on-line." Carlin said. "We’re not sure who the last two winners will be, but they are in store for an unforgettable day.”
