Ernie Els Signs First Autographed Trading Card Deal

Former number one world ranked golfer Ernie Els has finally signed a trading card deal with Upper Deck for the upcoming 2011-12 SP Authentic Golf set.

The former U.S. Open champion from South Africa will be signing his first autographed trading cards that will be inserted into the set with other widely known and popular golfers such as Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.

Golf collectors everywhere should be excited to hear this news as not only has he never had an autographed trading card on the market, but he is a great golfer and contributes quite a bit to charity off the course.

Additionally, Upper Deck is adding some other top names in sports who are actually quite the golfers themselves, in order to add some value. You can find autographs from stars such as Wayne Gretzky, Drew Brees, and Michael Jordan in the new “Parade of Stars” insert set.

Stay tuned for our full preview of 2011-12 SP Authentic Golf which releases on July, 10, 2012.
