One of my favorite brands by Upper Deck is returning in football this year after being a surprise insert in last year’s SP Authentic product. I’m excited to see this return as it’s usually one of the nicest looking products put out by Upper Deck and of course, has the awesome Shadow Box cards.
2012 SPx Football is set to release on June 19, 2012, and will feature some good college football content. Each 18 packs, 4 cards per pack box will feature one autographed rookie jersey card, one regular memorabilia card, and two additional autographs or memorabilia cards.
One of my favorite aspects is the slight change to the Shadow Box cards by including the new Shadow Box Slots this year which allows collectors to sort of create their own Shadow Box cards. It’s a cool addition to create your own type of card, with some slots also being autographed. I like what Upper Deck is trying to do here, changing the popular Shadow Box insert is a risk, but it looks good so far.
You’ll also find two Finite numbered rookie cards from some of the hottest names that entered the NFL draft this year. As with most Upper Deck products, you’ll find some college football and NFL legends as well in their college colors.
Make sure you check out stores on June 19, 2012, for 2012 Upper Deck SPx football for about $120.
