Default Upper Deck Unveils a Truly Innovative Exchange Program, Delivering Extraordinary Valu

Upper Deck Unveils a Truly Innovative Exchange Program, Delivering Extraordinary Value to Collectors



First Collectors to Pull Lucky Exchange Cards Will Have First Choice at Prizes



Carlsbad, CA – (December 17, 2007) – Dual autograph cards have been a favorite in the hobby for a number of years, but some of the most sought after have been of legendary personalities who are now deceased. Upper Deck is proud to release the Mystery Dual Cuts Exchange Program where lucky collectors will have the opportunity to own some of the best dual cut autograph cards ever produced.



Collectors who pull these winning exchange cards from 2007 UD Ultimate Baseball, 2007 UD Black Baseball or 2007 UD Exquisite Rookie Signatures Baseball will receive one of these very special cards. To create additional excitement about the program, collectors will be able to choose which card they will receive on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore, time is of the essence for collectors in terms of receiving some of the most intriguing cards.



The list of cards available represents some of the most captivating personalities in the hobby, paired with their equally amazing counterparts. The entire list of cards available is shown below:



Ronald Reagan & Mikhail Gorbachev
Robert Kennedy & Jimmy Hoffa
Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin
Albert Einstein & Thomas Edison
Roger Maris & Babe Ruth
John F. Kennedy & Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Clark Gable & Vivien Leigh
Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers
Marilyn Monroe & John F. Kennedy
Johnny Cash & Elvis Presley
Walt Disney & Charles Schultz
Winston Churchill & Franklin D. Roosevelt
Princess Diana & Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
P.T. Barnum & Charles Stratton (Tom Thumb)
King George V & Queen Elizabeth I
William Gilbert & Sir Arthur Sullivan
Douglas MacArthur & George S. Patton
Ozzie Nelson & Harriet Nelson
Robert E. Lee & Ulysses S. Grant
Jack Dempsey & Floyd Patterson
Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz
Al Jolson & George Burns
Art Carney & Jackie Gleason


Each of the cards will be 1/1 cards and lucky collectors who pull them will be sent to a special website to see which cards are remaining and select from there. To date, none of these cards have been redeemed even though the program began in stealth with the release of 2007 Ultimate Collection Baseball.



“This is without a doubt one of the most amazing programs we have ever created for our products,” said Joe Fallon, Director of Product Development for Upper Deck. “These are cards that collectors and hobby enthusiasts can get excited about. These are some of the best dual autograph cut cards we have ever created. Through this program, we are excited to deliver fun and value to our products for some lucky collectors.”



2007 UD Ultimate Collection Baseball includes three of these special cards and the product has been in the market since mid-October. 2007 UD Black Baseball is set to release Wednesday, December 19th and it will include ten of these exchange cards. 2007 UD Exquisite Rookie Signatures Baseball will release on January 9th and also include ten Mystery Cut exchange cards randomly inserted into packs.



Now collectors are left with two big questions. Which one of these is their dream card? What will they do to find it?

thats a cool idea... but what are the chances that UD already has these in stock? i think i have a better chance at winning the lotto.

but my top three would be

1. Douglas MacArthur & George S. Patton
2. Robert E. Lee & Ulysses S. Grant
3. Ronald Reagan & Mikhail Gorbachev

the impact all these figures had on the world as we know it is bigger than any sports star could ever deliver.

How sweet is that. I am going to try my luck at a golden ticket. Hope the prices don't jump way up with this news.

In terms of value I would take:

Marilyn Monroe & John F. Kennedy
Robert E. Lee & Ulysses S. Grant
Roger Maris & Babe Ruth

For my own collection I would take:

Johnny Cash & Elvis Presley
Ronald Reagan & Mikhail Gorbachev
or
Robert Kennedy & Jimmy Hoffa

Who would not want The King, The Gipper or the Mob??

Dobber - That's funny. When I saw the list the first 2 I thought would be most valuable would be the Monroe/Kennedy and the Grant/Lee. Just not sure what happens with thpse products once the list gets narrowed down to Ozzie and Harriet.
