Upper Deck’s latest Exquisite product – 2006 Football – will hit stores Jan. 31 and will likely raise a few eyebrows again with its $600-per-pack
suggested retail price.
But considering how valuable some of the rookie cards have become for
previous Exquisite Basketball releases, interest in this year’s wildly
popular crop of NFL rookies will probably eliminate any price resistance
among high-end collectors.
Every six-card box will contain one regular card or a gold parallel card,
one Rookie Signature card and one Rookie Signature Patch card. The other three cards in the box will be either autograph or memorabilia cards, such as oversize memorabilia cards, signed Combo cards, 1-of 1-Dual/Quad NFL Logo cards, and Legendary Cuts autographed cards. Another new feature for this year are the Gold Boxes (numbered to 25), with every card in the box being a 1-of-1.
