Upper Deck wants to see your “Man Cave” by Chris Olds

Upper Deck Authenticated has produced all kinds of memorabilia through the years and now the company wants to see where it has gone.


Upper Deck is having a contest where collectors can show off their — in its words — “man cave.” (Female collectors can also show off their, in UD’s words, “she caves” too.)

From UD’s release: “Sometimes men need a place to go where they can feel like a man. A place where their sports heroes adorn all four walls, where the couches are comfortable and the big screen plays only in High Definition. These man caves provide men with the chance to recharge.”

The five-week promotion leads up to Father’s Day and all collectors have to do is submit a video or photos of their “cave” by May 31 on UDA’s Facebook page to be entered into the early bird random drawing for a Steven Stamkos autographed puck “Curve” display.

Those who send in videos or images by June 18 will have the chance at a LeBron James autographed “Spotlight” photo.

And each week, for those who have submitted video or images, there will be a weekly drawing to add a Michael Jordan game-used floor piece. Participants can only win once for their submissions and winners will be announced on Facebook.

But there can be only one grand prize winner … UDA will review all submissions award that collector with an autographed hand-painted Michael Jordan Bulls jersey.

Here’s how the caves will be judged:

— A prominent selection of UDA items should on display. Additional points will be awarded for presenting a good mix of old and new UDA items.

— The quality of the submission. Submissions should be high-quality with descriptions to tell why the cave is the best.

— The quality of the display. Are items displayed in an attractive and compelling manner?

— How creative was the owner in putting together, displaying and showing off?

Collectors can also email submissions to, which will be posted online without identifying the person’s name or location.
