Upper Deck Authenticated has long been considered the gold standard with regard to delivering premium, authentic memorabilia to sports fans around the world. One of the things that differentiates Upper Deck Authenticated from other memorabilia companies is the team’s tireless quest to bring the most innovative collectibles to the market. This year UDA is pulling out all the stops to show sports fans first-hand some incredible items around the National Sports Collectors Convention (NSCC)!
Upper Deck staff will be getting the festivities started early in Chicago before the NSCC starts by hosting a high-end wine & cheese reception at Jim & Steve’s Sportscards on Tuesday night, July 28 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Available for sale will be a variety of incredible UDA items from company spokesman and Chicago legend; Michael Jordan.
Fans will want to get to the shop early as there will be some special giveaways to the first collectors present that evening and a variety of fun giveaways throughout the night. Those collectors who purchase an Upper Deck Authenticated item from Jim & Steve’s that evening will also be entered into a special drawing for other awesome items!

Once the NSCC opens on Wednesday, collectors will see two new types of memorabilia items the likes of which they have never seen before at the Upper Deck booth.
First up is the “Franchise Cornerstone” display featuring autographs of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan on a 48”x18” multilayered acrylic display. Behind the player’s image is a quote from the players talking about each other along with stats from their career. These “Dream Team” members seldom sign together and this is a piece you have to see in person to appreciate.
Next up you have another innovative collectible in the “Perfecting the Craft” bamboo print featuring Tiger Woods. The picturesque image shows Tiger launching a tee shot at Torrey Pines that is printed on actual bamboo. Tiger lent his perfect signature to the piece as well and they are limited to just 50 total copies!
And as an additional incentive, Chicago fans who make a purchase from Upper Deck Authenticated of $500 or more will receive the Chicago Bulls “Defenders of the Hardwood” game-used floor piece for FREE!
The top three purchasers of UDA items at the show will be invited to Upper Deck’s ultra-exclusive Diamond Club Member & Candidate reception as well on Saturday night!
So don’t miss Upper Deck Authenticated next week at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Rosemont, IL!
