Default Upper Deck takes aim at fairway with new releases

Upper Deck takes aim at fairway with new releases
January 31, 2011, 8:59 pm

By Chris Olds | Editor

Upper Deck has its sights set on a return to the golf world sometime soon and a pair of future products will include a golf card first and a big batch of Tiger Woods.

Those are things that golf fans — who have been without a set of their own since 2005 — will undoubtedly appreciate.

Up first, is a first — Bubba Watson‘s first Upper Deck golf card. It will appear in 2011 Goodwin Champions, which will arrive later this year.

Upper Deck’s Sports Marketing and Social Media Manager Chris Carlin had additional details.

“We’ve reached a deal with the 2011 Farmers Insurance Open winner for image rights and autographs,” he said. “That’s kind of big news as many were wondering if we would ever produce Goodwin Champions again. The last Goodwin Champions set had a lot of very unique and innovative trading card inserts sets, so we are very excited to bring that product back with even more bells and whistles that will be announced in the coming months.

“Watson’s first autograph cards will appear in 2011 Upper Deck Ultimate Champions, a cross-sport product with a high-end look and feel.”

The second item — a whole lot of Tiger — can be seen after the jump.

And what’s the story with these Tigers? They’re from an NHL set. Read below…

I think the only way I would consider a golf purchase would be for a high-end product. No fluff. Do it the right way and collectors will pay for a quality release.

It sounds to me that they are trying to copy someone else according to this:

“Watson’s first autograph cards will appear in 2011 Upper Deck Ultimate Champions, a cross-sport product with a high-end look and feel.”

"A cross-sport product" = Sportkings.

Oh, I'm sorry for some reason your question didn't click. I don't think they are "live" yet on the market but UD is now sending them out.

Crazy to think how much these would have sold for before Tiger's fall.
