Even though it has been five years since Upper Deck’s last golf trading-card product, fans of the sport are going to be rewarded for their patience. With golf’s rich history of legends, there is still something to be said for the attraction of stars and other celebrities that love the game. Also its young legends – like Rory McIlroy, who has seemingly come out of nowhere to make a name for himself as one of the best golfers in the world. Upper Deck’s new 2012 Sp Authentic Golf is a solid reminder as to why we love this game and all of the players that have made those memorable moments.
It is special because it features some of the best in the game, but to reach a broader audience, it is now featuring cards of other fans of the game as well such as, Drew Brees, Michael Jordan and more in a series named, “Parade of Stars.”
The product will include autograph cards, relic cards and plenty of rookie cards featuring some of the world’s best. Highlights will include a dual-auto of Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan! Be on the lookout for this product as it releases September 25th from Upper Deck.
