Default Upper Deck Revisits Classic 1997 Legends Football Autograph Set

Upper Deck Revisits Classic 1997 Legends Football Autograph Set

New cards updating the famous ‘97 Legends Football set can be found in 2008 Ultimate Collection Football releasing in February

North Las Vegas, NV (December 15, 2008) – When Upper Deck released its 1997 Legends Football set, it changed the industry forever. Collectors fell in love with the set for the simple, yet classic design, its incredible value, and the opportunity it presented to pull autograph cards from some of the greatest players in the game.

Something was missing in the set, however. Where were the current superstars? Players like John Elway, Barry Sanders, Jerry Rice, Troy Aikman and others were not included in the original set. Collectors will have their first opportunity to add those players to their 1997 Legends set when 2008 Ultimate Collection Football releases on February 11, 2009.

These new cards will have the same classic design as the ‘97 Legends set and all autographs will be hard-signed on the cards. These cards will also be numbered as part of the ‘97 set. Collectors can find one ‘97 Legends update autograph card per case on average.

“Collectors have been waiting for us to resurrect this set for some time,” said Brandon Miller, Upper Deck brand manager for football. “It was important enough to us that if we did it, we did it by providing collectors with the players who were not available on the initial checklist. Well, we’ve accomplished just that so football fans should be thrilled to add these cards to their set.”

I think these 97 Legends are the best autograph set! I think Upper Deck will make this hard to obtain!
