Upper Deck releases more info on high-end redemption programs

Upper Deck has released further details on two new, but similar, redemption programs: Exquisite Collection Baseball and UD Black Basketball. Both are only available through individual redemptions available across Upper Deck's upcoming releases.

Exquisite Collection Baseball is a 100-card set with all cards being either a single, dual, triple, quad autograph, Cut Signature, Upper Deck Authenticated piece or an autographed memorabilia card. Each card will also be limited to 75 copies or less. Collectors can also find redemptions for the full 100-card regular set (available no other way) or for full boxes of every 2007 Upper Deck and Fleer product.

Upper Deck has set up a website for the set at to register redemption cards and look at images from the set. The site will also include a countdown clock to see when the set will actually go live (given their track record on many redemptions, it'd be easy to make a jab here, but I'll resist).

UD Black Basketball is very similar. All cards will feature either an autograph or a memorabilia piece. They will also be serial numbered /99 or less. Redemptions will also include prize cards where consumers can win shopping sprees at the Upper Deck store, Upper Deck Authenticated products, an Upper Deck Experience, an NBA Rookie Photo Shoot Experience and much more.

Collectors can register their redemptions at
