Upper Deck Releases 2008 Major League Soccer Set

Highlighting LA Galaxy Star David Beckham



Set scores big with collectors of the world’s most popular sport



North Las Vegas, NV (September 4, 2008) – Americans are continuing to immerse themselves and become acclimated to the culture hype of Major League Soccer that is already a massive sports phenomenon overseas. With the addition of David Beckham to the league just over a year ago, collectors are intrigued by his megastar power and long-term collectability, as he single-handedly shook up America’s perception of the sport.



Sought-after game-used cards and autographs fill the 2008 Upper Deck MLS product, featuring such stars as Beckham and Landon Donovan of the L.A. Galaxy as well as Pablo Mastroeni of the Colorado Rapids. With two “MLS Materials” game-used jersey cards per box, including two limited patch cards per case, this product promises to send collectors straight to their local hobby stores to start cracking packs. Also included in the much-anticipated product are the “MLS Marks” autographed cards, averaging one per case and numbered up to 30! The hottest players on the planet – including Sasha Kljestan and Taylor Twellman – can be found inside this set. Other exciting stars and rookies can be found featured in the set’s varied inserts like “Super Draft 2008,” “Goal Scorers,” “Keepers,” “Assist Kings” and “Young Guns,” each one highlighting key players in the league.



“We’re very excited about this year’s MLS release, as some of the familiar faces that were just seen competing in the Olympics – like Maurice Edu, Sasha Kljestan, and Jozy Altidore – can also be found in this set,” said Brandon Miller, Upper Deck’s Soccer brand manager. “The addition of game-used jersey cards also adds an exciting element to the product this year.”



Upper Deck’s 2008 Major League Soccer carries a suggested retail price of $1.99 per 10-card pack with 36 packs per box. The product is currently available in stores, so start looking now to collect the entire 200-card set!
