2012 Upper Deck SP Authentic Football Box Break & Review

Design:  photo 4hot.jpg

With its smokey white background, 2012 SP Authentic Football truly displays what Upper Deck is known for and that’s superb card design.  On-card autographs flood this product and you don’t have to worry about stickers or white boxes.  The Canvas Collection cards look really well, especially the autographs.  Shadow Box cards are one of the best innovations that Upper Deck has come up with.  I actually think the Stadium Authentics Shadow Box style cards without signatures look better than the ones that have them.

“Hit” Quality:  photo 4hot.jpg

Inside each 24-pack box, you should find (3) “hits”.  One of the “hits” should be an autographed rookie patch.  Of all the cards I pulled, my personal favorite is the Stadium Authentics Shadow Box Charles White.  This is the first Shadow Box card I’ve pulled.

I pulled the following:


  • Dan Herron Rookie Auto Patch #’ed/885


  • Ladarius Green Canvas Collection Auto
  • Joe Adams Auto

  • Charles White 

1994 SP Football Die-Cut Parallel

Other Notable Cards

  • Robert Griffin III #10

  • Alfred Morris #63
  • Doug Martin #33

Overall:  photo 4hot.jpg

Overall, I give 2012 UD SP Authentic Football 4 hot dogs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Upper Deck is creating some fantastic looking NCAA licensed cards.  When you can get non-college football collectors to buy this stuff, you’ve done something right.  In the end, if a product is designed well and is packed with great players collectors will buy it.
