20 Years of Upper Deck
When Upper Deck producing its first set in 1989, it changed the hobby forever. 20 years and many innovations later, Upper Deck is celebrating.
Starting in March, Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealers will be releasing an 80-card set 20th anniversary set month by month.
Each month, collectors will be able to get the next segment of the set by purchasing qualifying sets of Upper Deck or Fleer products.
The set has many similarities to the 2002-03 UD Superstars set in that it is a four-sport set, but there is more to this set than just getting all the big names in sports.
Each card will have a code on the back that can be entered at an Upper Deck website for a chance to win a a trip to four major sporting events. All entires must be entered by Dec. 31 and collectors must enter all 80 to be eligible to win.
The prizes are two tickets to the Super Bowl and one game from the World Series, NBA Finals, and Stanley Cup Finals.
