Upper Deck unveils its NSCC VIP card set
By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
Upper Deck is headed to Baltimore for the National Sports Collectors Convention and it’s bringing along some cards for you.
Well, if you’re a VIP that is.
The company will produce a six-card show-exclusive set for the event set for Aug. 1-5 in Baltimore, and it showcases some of the biggest names in the company’s athlete spokesman stable.
The set will include soccer star Landon Donovan, golf star Tiger Woods, basketball stars Michael Jordan and LeBron James along with hockey stars Sidney Crosby and Wayne Gretzky.
Any collectors who buys a VIP ticket package will receive the set as part of their gift bag. The company also teased that it will be doing a wrapper redemption program — including autographed cards seeded into packs — at the show.
