John F. Kennedy was one of the most polarizing presidents in American history. His youthful exuberance and charismatic nature inspired people around the world. He left us far too early, but there are still a great many ways to remember him. One of those ways is by collecting trading cards of JFK and Upper Deck has certainly created a few over our history. Below is a gallery of some of our favorites as a trading card tribute to the late, great JFK:
Another great one came from Upper Deck’s 2011 Goodwin Champions set where we had ten hand-painted trading cards done of Kennedy. And collectors who were lucky enough to score one were obviously thrilled.
Upper Deck has also created some really remarkable cut signature cards of John F. Kennedy over the years that feature an authentic signature actually embedded in the trading card. These are very rare and many have moved into private collections, but from time to time you will see one up for sale at auction sites.
Always innovating, Upper Deck released an audio booklet card in 2015 Goodwin Champions that actually plays Kennedy’s inaugural address when opened. The Historical Rhetoric booklet card has a charging port so collectors can keep the internal battery in the card charged.
Coming out this May, 2019 is a new offering of President Kennedy collectible trading cards in the 2019 Goodwin Champions product. This eclectic release offers a diverse offering of subjects and is always a hit with collectors. There will be eight different Presidential Legacy Relics for JFK that chronicle his election, inauguration, creation of the Peace Corps, the race to space, Cuban missile crisis and more.
