Black is back.
Upper Deck brought UD Black back as a standalone basketball product this season. Each box comes with two packs with three cards in each pack.
The packs contain a number of different types of autographs such as Rookie Lustrous Signatures and Arena Art Booklets.
Check out the gallery below of UD Black and let us know what you think in the comments.
These cards are different and look great. College basketball arenas have a character of their own and adding significant players from those teams are a nice touch with these on-card autographs.
Another card utilizing acetate to add a dynamic contrast between the flat, black finish of the card to the glossy acetate.
Upper Deck loves putting many, many autographs together on a booklet. Some of these feature basketball Hall of Famers such as Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon and more.
The patches are manufactured, but the autographs are real.
