(EXQUISITE BASEBALL OFFERS MOST UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY PROMOTION)
Upper Deck brought back Exquisite Baseball this year after a one year hiatus as a mainstream product. However, the product was tempered as a rookie product with some mainstream attributes. The Exquisite Rookie Packs are sold as is now while last year it was an insert product in other UD releases.
(New UD Exquisite Rookie Edition.)
The twist this year is the price; $300 instead of $600 per pack. The content; 6 cards with 5 autographs including a dual. And the secondary promotion. There are two promotions tied to Exquisite. The first is called Mystery Dual Cuts Autograph. There are Mystery Packs and by registering your Mystery packs you have a chance to be one of 10 people selected to get a vintage dual cut signature card from some of the many UD produced over the years. The first to register will have the widest variety to choose from.
The second promotion features 42 winners. By submitting wrappers to a redemption contest collectors will have the opportunity to build their own quad memorabilia card. Each will be a 1-of-1 card with the collector choosing from a list of players in stock.
(One of the many possibilities to select from.)
Seven winners will be chosen a week for six weeks or 42 winners total. Of the 42, 21 will create a quad relic card, the other 21 will get to creat quad autographed cards. Players include rookies and veterans among whom are Cal Ripken, Jr., Derek Jeter, Prince Fielder and many more.
