As the University of Notre Dame celebrates one of its best seasons, Upper Deck is taking a moment to remember the storied football program.
The company released information on 2012 Upper Deck Notre Dame Football highlighting Fighting Irish icons from the past century. It seems like perfect timing since Notre Dame is headed to the BCS National Championship on Jan. 7 after going 12-0 in the regular season.
Every hobby box will include 80 cards – base sets, inserts and one autograph.
The autograph checklist is one of the best college football ones compiled. Names include Notre Dame icons such as Paul Hornung, Joe Theisman, Tim Brown, Ricky Watters, Lou Holtz, Brian Kelly, Jerome Bettis, Brady Quinn, and Rudy Ruettiger.
Collectors will be able to find retail blasters of Notre Dame football. Blasters will contain exclusive mini replica national championship banners.
Upper Deck has not given a release date yet.
