Upper Deck has a new memorabilia and trading card autograph deal with Shanshan Feng, the first-ever Chinese player to become a member of the LPGA.
Feng started playing golf in China at age 10, then moved to the U.S at 17 after being discovered in China and offered a golf academy scholarship in the U.S. She has nine victories on the ladies’ professional golf tour since becoming a member in 2008 including the 2012 LPGA Championship. That victory made her the first male or female player from mainland China to win a major golf championship. Feng was ranked first in Women’s World Golf Rankings from November 2017 – April of 2018.
In 2017, Feng opened the Shanshan Feng Golf Academy near her hometown of Guangzhou to help other children in China learn to play.
“We are excited to bring a championship female golfer who is a pioneer both on and off the golf course,” says Jason Masherah, President at Upper Deck.
Feng has signed several Upper Deck Authenticated items already that are for sale on the company’s website starting at $199.99.
