The buyout of the 2021 Upper Deck National Sports Collectors Convention packaging may look a little different than in recent years, but it still brings the familiar content of the promotional package.
As a business, Upper Deck will not have a full display in Chicago. However, they’re still going to have a lot to do in other ways, much of which will emanate from the GTS Distribution booth.
This includes the annual wrapper exchange promotion set. To get an exclusive Black Summer Promo Pack, collectors will need to purchase an Upper Deck 2020-21 Hobby Box from one of the company’s diamond dealers at the show. All 2020-21 Upper Deck products count.
Each pack contains four cards: two Prominent Cuts and two Top Shelf Rookies.
The Prominent Cuts Checklist contains ten cards and covers a variety of sports. Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Tiger Woods and Wayne Gretzky.
Top Shelf Rookies has ten other players. If you look at the list, you’ll notice that they feature stars from last year. There is a reason for this. The cards were actually slated for 2020, but the pandemic has caused many promotions to be canceled.
Autographs for both parts of the checklist are also available.
Finally, there is a third section to the 2021 Upper Deck National Sports Collectors Convention Packaging Exchange Checklist – Retrospective Project. These four cards showcase the New Jersey Devils players, who would have coincided with the canceled 2020 National in Atlantic City.
Upper Deck has a full breakdown of what company events and activities they will be attending on their blog.
