Ultimate Collection brands have undergone a major enhancement to the content of future releases, according to Upper Deck. Ultimate Collection products (SRP $100) will now have three times as many game-used and autograph cards than in years prior.
Upper Deck Ultimate Collection brands will feature 12 core inserts per box, with one signature and two memorabilia cards being found per pack. The face lift continues as now every box will also yield one patch card numbered to 50 or less, on average. Many of these inserts will be multi-signed, multi-jersey or multi-patch variations as well.
