FIRST LOOK: Upper Deck’s Alabama Football
By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor
Upper Deck is readying a new school-centered football product for The University of Alabama.
The long checklist will include some of the all-time greats for Alabama such as Bart Starr, Joe Namath and, of course, Bear Bryant.
A hobby box will consist of 24 packs with eight cards in each pack. There are 100 cards in the base checklist with 90 regular cards and 10 Roll Tide Through the Years.
There are several inserts for the Alabama set with many of the cards autographed.
There is autograph in every hobby box with two Crimson Tide Icons cards. Each pack has two to three inserts as well.
Some of the autographs include Nick Saban, Namath, Ken Stabler, Shaun Alexander, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson.
This isn’t the first time Upper Deck has given this type of treatment to school. It has done Oklahoma and Texas in the past.
Alabama Football is scheduled to come out Sept. 25.
