Upper Deck Announces Plans for 32nd Annual National Sports Collectors Convention

On Wednesday, August 3, during the VIP “Sneak Peek” Day, a special six-card, VIP-emblazoned
cello-wrapped set from Upper Deck will be available to all show attendees who show their VIP
passes to The National. The player lineup for this coveted takeaway includes Michael Jordan,
Wayne Gretzky, Sidney Crosby, LeBron James, Bobby Orr and Landon Donovan.

During each public day of the show – Thursday through Sunday – Upper Deck will be conducting
its popular foil pack wrapper redemption program starting at 12 noon. Fans who purchase five
packs of specified Upper Deck card packs from Certified Diamond Dealers at the show will
receive a voucher they can bring to the Upper Deck booth to receive one of four different 2011
National event-exclusive, five-card packs. Each day there will be a different five-card collection
redeemed and they will be available while supplies last. A full list of the acceptable products
will be displayed at the Upper Deck booth with information on which retailers at the show will be
selling them.

On Thursday, the five-card pack will include Michael Jordan, Derrick Rose and Tiger Woods,
while Friday’s lineup includes Jonathan Toews and Greg Maddux. Saturday’s packs will feature
Mike Singletary, LeBron James and Wayne Gretzky, while Sunday’s roster will include such stars
as Bubba Watson, Landon Donovan and Jake Locker. A complete list of all the players available
each day will be posted at the Upper Deck booth. Card packs must be opened at the booth in
front of an Upper Deck representative for redeeming purposes after the customer presents their
redemption voucher. To make things even more exciting, Upper Deck has randomly inserted
autograph cards of several players into some of the packs.
