Upper Deck previews 2012 SP Game Used Golf


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

Golf was lacking from the hobby for many years. However, Upper Deck is bringing it back in a big way.

The company released images of 2012 SP Game Used Golf featuring an autograph and a memorabilia card in every pack.

SP Game Used is set to come out in February with three five-card packs in every box. Each pack will also come with three base cards or Retro Rookies.

Some of the top hits include Inked Drivers, signatures on pseudo metal-driver club face; First Tee autographed Rookie Cards, and a number of memorabilia cards from golfers on the tour, including Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.

And there is Rory McIlroy, one of the world’s best golfers, who will be featured heavily in upcoming golf products. His debut will be in SP Game Used.

However, McIlroy’s first card will be a tough pull, falling at a rate of 1 in 72 packs and marked #SP1.

His regular base cards will appear in 2013 Upper Deck golf products.

Look at the gallery below for images of 2012 SP Game Used Golf.

    Kinda seems right for UD… Card is numbered to 3 and features a plain white swatch. At least but the velcro swatch in there… then at least you’d have an easy way to carry it!

    Just kidding around… set looks real nice! That quad button card would be awsome to pull!

    Is the quad button card a manufactured card or event used? The buttons look very similiar (obviously different colors, but all but one are the same size and style). I know that Chris Olds wrote about this a couple of months ago, and I think this is a good example of my concern as a collecter. When I look at the golf shirts in my closet, there is a wide range of different looking buttons. I worry that these butttons have no correlation to the golfers they are supposed to represent, but were rather purchased at a store and put on a card next to a picture of Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus.. Even if it states “event worn” or something of that nature, I find it difficult to believe that there isn’t one button from one of these golfers that varies in style from the others.

    Terrence: That’s a photoshopped mock of the card. Nothing on it is real in regards to the buttons.
