Upper Deck announces an extension to its historic Exquisite Collection brand as it expands to football. The company will release Exquisite Collection Football (SRP $500), which will feature a football card with an autographed piece from a game-used helmet. In addition, the company will include the first-ever quadruple autographed logo patch football card in the set.
Exquisite Collection Football is loaded from top to bottom delivering six hits per box: one regular card; a rookie autographed patch jersey card numbered to 199 or less; one additional signature (either a dual, triple or quad) numbered to 99 or less; one patch card numbered to 35 or less; one oversized jersey card numbered to 50; one and additional rookie signature numbered to 150.
"Exquisite Collection Football will continue to challenge the way the industry looks at high-end collectible sets," says Football Product Development Manager, Gregg Kohn. "This set is loaded with tons of great cards such as the Brett Favre/Joe Montana/Dan Marino/John Elway quad patch card numbered to 10 or the Troy Aikman game used helmet autograph card also numbered to five. We are also offering a unique redemption, inserted in random boxes, will be a redemption card for another box of Exquisite Collection Football or a redemption for the entire Rookie Signature Materials set."
The 128-card set features a total of 42 NFL stars (numbered to 150), 52 Exquisite Rookies Signature cards (numbered to 150), and 34 Exquisite Rookie Signature Materials cards (numbered to 199 or less) appearing in action-packed, cutting edge designs collectors have come to expect from Upper Deck.
