Upper Deck releasing a University of Alabama Football Card Set


  • Release date is September 25th. Looks to be a very high quality set. 100 cards in base set. 90 regular cards and 10 'Roll Tide Through the Year' cards. There are also several insert sets including autographs.

    Sounds like I may be getting back ito collecting a few football cards! RTR!

    http://www.beckett.com/news/20...abama-football/

    Upper Deck is readying a new school-centered football product for The University of Alabama .

    The long checklist will include some of the all-time greats for Alabama such as Bart Starr, Joe Namath and, of course, Bear Bryant .

    A hobby box will consist of 24 packs with eight cards in each pack. There are 100 cards in the base checklist with 90 regular cards and 10 Roll Tide Through the Years.

    There are several inserts for the Alabama set with many of the cards autographed.

    There is autograph in every hobby box with two Crimson Tide Icons cards. Each pack has two to three inserts as well.

    Some of the autographs include Nick Saban, Namath, Ken Stabler, Shaun Alexander, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson.

  • This is a market niche that is almost completely untapped and loaded with profit potential for card companies. If they get cut auto's of coaching greats, they will be highly coveted.

    I could imagine a Bear Bryant card with a cut of houndstooth hat and signed check.
    Or dual auto of Stabler and Namath. Or Saban and Stallings. Or Ingram, Richardson and Alexander.
    The possibilities are endless for all of the major CFB schools.

  • There are dual signed and trio signed cards of past greats. You would be very fortunate to pull one, since there are only 10 each of the Dual signed sub set cards, and only 3 each of the trio signed sub sets. One has Namath, Stabler and Barker. One has Namath and Starr, One has Ingram, Humphrey and Alexander. Found the complete set list. Kind of long but some good stuff in there!

  • Link doesn't work. How much for the entire set? I have a set my father gave me from back in the 80's that are all Bama legends, uncut, in full sheets. Think they're worth anything today?

  • No Mount Cody love? All American, key cog on 09 NC team...Rocky Bock...

  • Here is a link to a site where you can pre order it. Looks to be around $45 for a box. It has the picture of what the box will look like. I am in now way endorsing this website. I personally have never bought anything from them..Just looking to see what the price of a box would be.

    I haven't collected any sports card since prob the mid 90s?

    Looks like that is about to change though.

    Thanks for the info!

  • It would be difficult to get all of the base set, but possible. Especially if you buy the singles off eBay. But getting the complete set including all of the autos will be almost impossible. You'd have to buy most of them off eBay and they will come at a very steep price.

    Here's an interview with Gregg Kohn of Upper Deck detailing info on the products...

  • Yes. The uncut sheets, if professionally framed (or it looks like it), would sell pretty well on eBay. Especially after these cards start to hit the market as people will be looking for Alabama cards now.

  • Good friend of mine owns www.freedomcardboard.com. It is a mature community of collectors. You should be able to get the boxes and cases through them.

  • I'm all for it, man. Just wasn't sure you knew what you're getting into.
    There are people who collect 1/1 Rookie Autos and spend $25,000 on a single card. You won't have to spend that much, but in total, it might be close.

    “You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”

  • Slightly off topic, but is there a good way to price/sell cards from when you were younger? I know you can do Ebay, but are there other ways? I have a big collection of Michael Jordan cards and several big cards from MLB, NFL, and NBA...but I have no idea how to price what they are worth anymore. TIA

  • The freedomcardboard site I linked above is loaded with collectors. That site has been around a few years now and is reputable. They mostly use eBay. You will want to get them graded and sell them on eBay in order to bring the most money. The forum and articles on the site should be able to answer just about every question you could have.

    “You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”

  • Best way I know to price is through Beckett.com but you have to pay for it. They have a marketplace where you can sell as well.

    signature image
  • Please don't take this the wrong way, but Beckett really isn't a good way.
    To get the best idea for what a particular card is worth, search completed sales on eBay.
    Beckett isn't what it use to be. It is the collecting version of Scout.com at this point.

    For the best information on Alabama football and recruiting, we come to BOL...a community of fans and experts on the subject.
    For the best information on buying and selling cards, you do the same.
