Upper Deck has used Flair Showcase in Fleer Retro products the past two years. Now, the brand is getting its own release.

Upper Deck will release 2014 Flair Showcase Football in September with 12 packs in every box and six cards in each pack.

Each box will contain one autograph and one memorabilia card along with another hit of either an autograph patch, a Jambalaya insert or a Precious Metal Gem. Collectors will also find four Row 0 cards, two Legacy parallels and three Metal Universe cards in every box.

The base set will look similar to former Flair Showcase releases. The set will contain 200 base cards broken down into four subsets: Base Set Rookies Row 2 (100 cards), Base Set Rookies Row 1 (50 cards), Base Set Rookies Row 0 (25 cards), Base Set Legends Row 0 (25 cards).

The Precious Metal Gems will come in three colors of Gold (numbered to 100), Orange (numbered to 25) and Magenta (numbered to 10). The Jambalaya cards will be tough pulls, just one insert per case.

    Will the set have a retail version sold at local Target and Wal Mart stores?

    Like the idea, but the lack of an NFL license makes me not want to buy.

    Wowowow Johnny Manziel Jambalaya insert?!?!?!? If so then I’m buying this one. Forget the $800 for 4 cards a box products
