The future stars of America’s most popular sport are upon us. Upper Deck has decided to grab the license to produce USA Football cards featuring some of the best….high school football players in the nation.
On a personal note, this is an interesting development. Getting these kids to sign and getting pieces of their jerseys are interesting. And the fact these will be the first cards, some autographed, of future college and NFL players makes things even more interesting. I guess it just depends on how collectors react to them. Talk about prospecting, this may take it to a whole other level.
Anyway, each of these box sets will feature 45 cards of all the top players in the country who represent the United States in international competition. Each box will feature 1 autograph and 2 game used jersey cards in these boxed sets. These include autographed jersey swatches and patch cards as well, in limited numbers.
And that’s about it. Boxed sets aren’t filled with too much, but it’s definitely good to start the product out with a bang to garner some interest. While high school players don’t get huge recognition and the names aren’t that big, it’s just a matter of time before these guys are playing for your favorite college team or are getting drafted to the NFL.
For $38 a box and that kind of a content, if you have an itch, this product may be worth opening and seeing what the players do in a few years time. We may have some future Heisman Trophy winners in here? Future #1 picks? Who knows? Check it out on May 15, 2012.
