Upper Deck releases new premium line of golf trading cards

2014_09_25-upper_deck-rszFor golf-memorabilia buffs, there’s plenty packed into Upper Deck’s new trading-card set. The 2014 Exquisite Golf Collection comes in packs of six cards, five of which are autographed by a tour pro. The new line was released July 29.

Each card is numbered to prove its authenticity. Legends such as Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, current PGA Tour pros, and LPGA players are all included. Among the highlights of the set are rookie cards from Rory McIlroy, Michelle Wie, Graeme McDowell and Cheyenne Woods.

The cards also incorporate swatches of game-worn golf shirts, which have been sent directly from Tour pros to Upper Deck, said sports marketing manager Chris Carlin. Additionally, the collection includes the largest offering of autographed Tiger Woods cards that Upper Deck has ever offered.

Packs are selling for $650. For more information, visit www.upperdeck.com.
