Default First look: 2012 Upper Deck SP Authentic Golf

First look: 2012 Upper Deck SP Authentic Golf

January 17, 2012 at 2:45 PM



By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

After a lengthy absence from the golf scene, Upper Deck is coming back with a new set this year.

SP Authentic Golf is scheduled for a June release with cards from the top male and female golfers of the world.

Collectors could expect to find autographs and material cards as well as a plethora of Rookie Cards as well as one of the coolest dual autograph cards in a while.


This is the second golf set to be announced this year. Leaf is also coming out with a product in March: Metal Golf.

SP Authentic Golf should have – on average – three autographs with at least one rookie in every 20-pack box with four cards in each pack.

Some of the golf collectors could expect to find are Tigers Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ernie Els, Arnold Palmer, Annika Sorenstam, Paula Creamer, Natalie Gulbis and others.

If you look at the pictures, there is one card that has been jumping out to fans: the dual autograph of Michael Jordan and Woods, two of the best athletes of this generation.

Upper Deck hasn’t had a dedicated golf set since 2005 and it seems it is going all out for this product. Along with the autographs and swatches there are variations to many of the hits and inserts. In addition, red foil parallels are extremely hard to find dropping at an average of four in every five cases.

It doesn't look like they even bothered to try and create a new look for these cards.

Wow. You are 100% correct on that. The cards look kind of generic to say the least.
I am sick of the whole Metal thing but am looking forward to Metal Golf.

I guess Tiger called up UD and told him he needed some money? :P

Check out box prices for SPA golf and let me know whether or not $110 is overpriced. This is going to be a winner, end of story. If Tiger comes out and wins a tourney or 2 before release, expect this to jump to $150 or $200 per box. I will be preordering a case at minimum.

Stupid question, but is there a way to set an alert with BO when cases are available for pre-order?

Does Jordan have to be in everything UD does. Are they going to try to find a way to put LeBron in this too??

He is not in the Leaf Metal golf product - I hear that he turned down big $$$ to sign for them.

I would guess that if he turned down Leaf that he will probably turn down UD as well.

I personally would rather have the ability to pull a $5000 Jordan/Tiger dual auto from a pack than having the satisfaction(?) of having a 'pure' golf product.
