Upper Deck unveils 2011 College Football Legends


By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor

By way of its Facebook page, Upper Deck recently delivered details concerning its 2011 College Football Legends line.

The California-based card company posted a 15-image gallery (with room to grow) and described the brand through configuration and college football figureheads. In what looks to be one of the best NCAA products of the season, College Football Legends highlights the history of the game  in late November.

Each 20-pack box (five cards per pack) offers a total of three hard-signed autographs — aptly autographed by legends like Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, Paul Hornung, John Elway, Barry Sanders and more. The set also features 26 cards showcasing Earl Campbell, Andre Ware, Cam Newton among other former Heisman Trophy winners.

Arriving in the midst of another NCAA season, the nostalgic brand is headlined by a number of autographed inserts, including …

  • Bowl Game Heroes Autographs (numbered to 75)
  • NCAA All-Americans Autographs (numbered to 70)
  • Decade’s Best Autographs (numbered to 80)
  • College Inscriptions (numbered to 99)

Stay tuned to Beckett.com for a roster of names and other checklist details as the information becomes available.

    If it’s like $150 a box sure. $200+ no thanks. Look nice though, can’t complain about on card autos

    if everybody is planning on just buying singles and not opening the packs, then how do you plan on getting them?

    This is a re-boot/copy/whatever of their 1997 Legends set – imo the best set ever made.
    In that set, for 5$ a pack, you had auto’s falling 4 per box.
    You also collected the base cards – very rare nowadays.
    Awsome photography front and back – just check out the Montana from 1997 Legends.
    I will be buying this, just wish they had 4 hits per box.
    Also glad there are NO jersey cards!! YAY!!

    This is the first UD product that I have looked at in probably about 5 years and really wanted to get into. The issue will be (and always is) who are they “filling in the set” with. I need to see a checklist before I drop $120 to get an Under Ware auto. Being an MSU Spartan Alum, it was nice to see that uniform in a set (other than Magic), but come on UD…Is Tony Mandrich really a legend? He was an unbelievable college player…See the term unbelievable due to admitted massive steroid usage. How about Kirk Gibson, Lorenzo White, Plaxico Burress, etc. if you had to pick a Spartan.
