Working for a company with a legendary history like Upper Deck is a thrill. There are a lot of perks that go along with the job too. Many who work here appreciate our location as we are based in Carlsbad, California, just a few miles away from the ocean. Many of the sports card purists here appreciate being able to develop some of the most legendary sets in sports card history for collectors to enjoy. Others enjoy getting up close and personal with some of their favorite athletes.
I’ll be honest, there are a lot of things that make working at Upper Deck great, but for me, nothing beats working with shop owners and collectors to make sure they are enjoying our products. We often get thank you letters from customers and sometimes, even treats* from time to time. One of our larger retailers in Hawaii wanted to thank the Customer Service, Sales and Redemption teams for some assistance they provided recently and sent in some chocolates and other goodies from the islands. Helping out and getting recognized for it is pretty sweet to say the least.
Unfortunately sometimes when the treats are this good, some people might want to take more than their share. Therefore we have to bring in someone to keep an eye on things. Taking a break from another run to the Stanley Cup, we entrusted those duties to Sidney Crosby. Check it out, it’s almost like he’s saying, “I dare you to take two…”
*At Upper Deck we work hard to treat every customer on an individual basis. Sending thank you letters or treats are appreciated, but will not necessarily result in special treatment. As our customers, you are all special.
