2021 Upper Deck Space Jam: A New Legacy Checklist and Details
2021 Upper Deck Space Jam: A New Legacy trading cards are a natural fit. For collectors, they’re also another way that the franchise has passed the torch from one generation to the next.
Michael Jordan was the star of Space Jam. He was an exclusive spokesman for Upper Deck. LeBron James stars in the sequel. He, too, has an exclusive with the card maker. If anyone was going to make trading cards, Upper Deck seems like the natural fit. They did for the 1996 original and, now, they’re back in action for the second.
Blasters include six packs, each with five cards. Although it doesn’t appear to be an overly complex release, there are some premium possibilities including autographs.
A hobby release with a larger number of premium cards will follow the initial retail offering.
2021 Upper Deck Space Jam: A New Legacy Checklist Overview
The retail base set has 50 total cards. Bugs, the rest of the Tune Squad and some of James’ real-life teammates and opponents all find their way onto the checklist in a variety of ways. Rather than recapping the film, it’s more promotional images and art.
Each blaster pack includes a Blue parallel.
With one in each box, Ready to Jam is the only insert expected in each blaster. However, others are randomly inserted.
One way that movie going has changed in the last quarter century is film distribution. The original arrived in theatres on long rolls of film. Today, things are digital. However, the past is inspiring the present with one of the insert sets here. New Legacy Manufactured Film Cels highlight movie frames on film-like material. These come in four tiers of rarity, making it more challenging to finish the set.
Breaking the Game is a lenticular 3-D set. Short prints are also part of the checklist here.
Autographs from the film’s stars and voice actors as well as sketch cards are also available. LeBron James is one of the set’s signers, but he’s extremely tough to pull. Other autographs include Don Cheadle, Nneka Ogwumike and Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias.
