The Upper Deck Company has produced a special multi-sport trading card set that will be available at the 2014 Industry Summit in Las Vegas, NV. The series is available at the four-day hobby show from Mar. 16-19.
“Every (Upper Deck) Certified Diamond Dealer in attendance will score a special 25th Anniversary pack,” wrote Chris Carlin via the Upper Deck Blog. “Inside shop owners can find single, dual or even quadruple autograph cards signed from the biggest names in the game who have played such a major role in Upper Deck’s success over the years.”
From the images previewed, collectors already know that both Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr are featured in the multi-sport set, as are Ken Griffey, Jr. (baseball), LeBron James (basketball), Michael Jordan (basketball), Rory McIlroy (golf) and Tiger Woods (golf).
“Upper Deck looks forward to spending time with shop owners as the show floor is open on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. We had secured a huge booth space front and center at the show where we will have plenty of amazing items on hand for shops to check out including a sneak preview of the World War I artifacts that will be inserted into the 2014 Goodwin Champions Museum Collection.
“The first 100 Certified Diamond Dealers who visit the Upper Deck booth on Sunday can score a FREE Upper Deck t-shirt by writing their well wishes on a large Upper Deck 25th Anniversary graphic in the booth. Then the festivities shift into high gear on Sunday night as Upper Deck partners with Sports Images and Ultra Pro who are also celebrating their 25th anniversaries with a special welcome party at DB’s Pong & Pool at the Planet Hollywood Hotel.”
This year marks the 5th edition of the Industry Summit, a show that hopes to “drive sales in the sports card and collectible industry through seller development and networking.” For more information, please visit industrysummit.com.
