Sneak Peek: 2011 Upper Deck Football by tolentinotown

By Andrew Tolentino | Assistant Editor

Upper Deck recently released a few (two to be exact), preview images of its 2011 football product. Set to release on April 12, the NFL newcomer-focused manufacturer announced that this set will deliver “the top 2011 rookies before the draft.”

After all, Upper Deck is the only company allowed to use NCAA team logos with its exclusive deal with the Collegiate Licensing Company.

In addition to the forthcoming football freshmen, league veterans and greats will be featured in what appears to be  a 1991 throwback design on some cards (see below). As the images indicate, Adrian Peterson and Dan Marino are amongst the many players pictured in their collegiate uniforms.

The saga will surely unfold over the next few months, but for now this product breakdown will have to do.
