The Card: 2001 Upper Deck Golf Tiger Woods RC #1
Paul Casey might have won the Valspar Championship on Sunday but it’s Tiger Woods that got people talking. The thought of a Woods comeback has surfaced many times over the past couple of years, usually cut short with news of another injury or hiatus.
This past week, it was different. It wasn’t just a highlight or two that would could latch onto and hope for the best. This time, Woods was in the thick of things from start to finish.
For example, Blowout Cards was offering a case as a Twitter giveaway if Woods won the Valspar. They upped the ante to ten cases if Woods retweeted (he didn’t). Today, there aren’t a lot of cases of 2001 products floating around for giveaways, let alone ten.

Even though Woods didn’t win, they still gave away some boxes.
The importance of the 2001 Upper Deck Tiger Woods isn’t so much in its secondary market value today. It’s more that it brought golf cards into the mainstream, even if only for a somewhat short time. Upper Deck has made lots of Tiger Woods cards over the years including lots of autographs. Yet, none are as iconic as the one that started it all for them.
