I’ve got a confession to make.
We’ve spent a lot of time this week on the blog talking about Exquisite Collection Basketball, and with good reason. It’s one of the most exciting high-end products in the history of the industry, and we’re really pulling out all the stops this time around. As you read this post, our brand team is currently hard at work constructing each pack by hand, and even uploading some of the best cards to Facebook for all to see.
My confession? I got a head start on them.
A few weeks back, the Exquisite cards were stored under tight lock and key here at the Upper Deck building, but I managed to bust in and snap a shot or two. Like this card, for example:
This would be the best basketball player on the face of the earth today, and the best basketball player in the history of the game. On the same card, hard signed autographs, with logo patches.
I won’t brag too much because this will end up in the hands of one lucky collector. Really, I’m just happy I got the jump on the brand guys with this one!
