Check out this week’s Top 5 hottest sports card boxes.
1. Upper Deck Premier Basketball returns this year after a strong showing in 2007/08. Each box contains 1 rookie auto jersey, 1 woven patch card, 1 triple or quad jersey variable card, and 1 jersey/patch or auto/memorabilia card. This is another of the short printed basketball card releases this year, as cases are limited to 500 in production.
2. 2009 Topps Heritage Baseball delivers one on card autograph or relic card per box. Heritage also has some of the best insert sets of the year thus far according to some.
3. 2008/09 Upper Deck Ice Hockey – Look for 3 Autographed or memorabilia cards, and 4 acetate ice rookie cards per box on average. There are plenty of good rookies in this product, and the popular level 1 rookies numbered to just 99. Hockey Card collectors that love the acetate look also get to look for the “glacial graphs” autographed inserts.
4. 2008 Upper Deck Exquisite Football – The addition of the exquisite gold pack has been very popular in the football card market. With all on card autos and a strong rookie class, Exquisite is on fire. No sign of Tiger yet right?
5. 2008/09 Upper Deck SP Authentic Basketball – Each box contains on average (2) Autographed Cards, including (1) Autographed Patch Rookie Card or Autographed Letterman Card.
