Upper Deck, the premier worldwide sports and entertainment collectibles company, announced today the global release of Overwatch League™ trading cards, the first-ever esports league-licensed trading card product. The new trading card set is available for purchase via Upper Deck e-Pack™, the patent-pending platform that allows fans to purchase and open packs of trading cards at any time, from anywhere in the world, using a mobile device or computer.
The new product commemorates the Overwatch League’s inaugural season with a comprehensive 125-card base set, combined with multiple insert sets that celebrate key player and team moments throughout the season. Insert sets include Season 1 Highlights, League Leaders, Team Leaders, and unique Holo F/X cards featuring Overwatch League All-Stars on a layered holographic background.
Fans can also find foil parallels of the base set and Infra-Sight cards with player images printed directly onto clear acetate. Rare single, duo, and trio Inks and Fragment cards feature one, two, or three player autographs, or swatches of player jerseys that are embedded into the cards.
For those who seek more exclusive items or super rare cards and enjoy a challenge, Upper Deck’s e-Pack platform offers an extensive achievement program that gives fans the opportunity to obtain printing plates, player and team autographed memorabilia and ‘1 of 1’ Shadow Box Relic cards, which capture player-used mice, pieces of match-used keyboards, or CPU chips encased in an oversized trading card. All-Star Ink achievement booklet cards feature up to six signatures from top players across the league. Collectors who are first to complete specific insert sets can even earn an autographed jersey from New York Excelsior support player Seong-Hyun “Jjonak” Bang, the Overwatch League inaugural season MVP, or London Spitfire damage player Jun-Young “Profit” Park, Grand Finals 2018 MVP.
