Flashback Product of the Week: 2002 Upper Deck Authentics


After seeing the success Topps had with their Heritage brand, Upper Deck decided to throw their two-cents into the ring with 2002 UD Authentics.  This 200-card set is modeled after Upper Deck’s initial 1989 baseball product that revolutionized the hobby.  Needless to say, Upper Deck’s attempt failed with this release.  The big selling point was that each 18-pack box came with three jersey cards.  The jersey cards aren’t anything to get excited about, although I do like the Retro Star Rookie jerseys because they feature a photo of that specific player’s Upper Deck rookie card on it.  I’ve always enjoyed cards that picture other cards on them.

I think UD Authentics bombed because it was just a quick response to Topps Heritage.  When it comes to retro themed products, Topps will always have the upper hand in most cases.  Boxes of this stuff can still be found for $70.00.


Never Heard Of Them, But I Like The Design

I have to be honest with you.  I’ve never heard of The World Football Authentics Uncirculated Vault, but I do enjoy the design of their cards.  They have a similar design to those cards you see with pennies in them.  For all I know this company could also make those.  What I like most about these is how well you can identify the piece of jersey.  There are so many card designs out on the market that make if difficult to just see the relic because the manufacturer over does the design of the card.  Just take a look at this thing.  The plain colored background along with the black and white image really makes the red relic standout.  I bet even a piece of white jersey would standout on this type of layout.  Since I’m not familiar with the company, I can’t say too much about their COA for the relic.  From what I have found, there has only been one seller with these up for sale.  Some of these have sold for as much as $35.00 and seem to be a hit with soccer fans.
