Flashback Product of the Week: 1991 Upper Deck Football Series 1

1991 UD Series 1 was Upper Deck’s first attempt at manufacturing football cards.  Each box contains 36 packs with 12 cards per pack.  Along with various inserts and holograms, you had the chance to pull a Joe Montana autograph serial numbered to 2,500 copies.  This is the first football certified autographed card that could be pulled from a pack.  Considering there were a ton of boxes produced, pulling a card numbered to 2,500 was pretty hard.  ’91 UD football did have its share of rookies, but that only notable one worth mentioning has to be Brett Favre.  Boxes can be purchased for less than $30.00 and aren’t that difficult to find.

  1. I love that set, and the 92 as well, but talk about over-production!
