Collectors may have noticed an interesting card from Upper Deck on the secondary market – UD Infinite.
They included cards of Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. You can’t find these in any store.
UD Infinite is only available through Dynamics ePlate, a credit card system with special reward programs. They’re not easy to come by. They require consumers to collect a set of 250 digital cards to get one pack.

Thousands and thousands of people have said they were at Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game.
Way more than the 4,000 or so that actually attended the game in Hershey, Pa. But you can make a claim to being there by winning an auction for a ticket stub in Steiner Sport’s Fall Classic Auction.

Cryptozoic is changing the way it makes its autographs announcements.
Rather than wait until the cards are in-house, Cryptozoic will update collectors when it gets an autograph contract. Then will update as the process moves along. This will allow Cryptozoic to inform collectors and distributors what autographs will be in products earlier.
“The fact that this vital information is shared with our community sometimes only weeks before release is something we are aware has caused frustration for our distributors, dealers, and collectors,” Cryptozoic’s Miranda Charsky wrote on the company’s blog. “I think it is really important to acknowledge that we have certainly heard that feedback, and while we think the motivation for this policy was with our collectors’ interests at heart, we have decided we can best serve our customers by altering this policy moving forward.”
