2013 Upper Deck Quantum Football CardsBrand: College
Update: 2013 Upper Deck Quantum Football has been cancelled as a standalone release. Upper Deck did say some of the content would be included in a 2014 product.
2013 Upper Deck Quantum Football is a new line from the card maker that focuses on autographs and memorabilia and not physics and other scientific verbiage. Every box has just one pack, delivering an autographed patch card, two autographs numbered to 99 or less and a memorabilia card. All autographs are signed on card.
Rookie Signature Patch cards have a large piece of player-worn memorabilia that's encased in PETG, a form of plastic. It also acts as a surface for the autograph, giving the card a layered look. Legendary Signature Patch cards follow a similar format for all-time football greats.
All-Time Greats Lettermen Autographs spell out the featured player's last name. Each letter is numbered to 5 or less. Legacy Autograph Jersey cards have swatches of player-worn gear. There's also a patch version.
2013 Upper Deck Quantum Football has a handful of rare multi-signature cards as well. Leading the way are one-of-one Quantum 9 and Decades Signatures. Each uses a book card format to offer nine total signatures. Moments in Time (#/75) are dual autograph book cards.
Museum Collection redemptions are good for over-sized cards with pieces of college football memorabilia. Relics include actual championship rings, pieces of stadium seats and ticket stubs from bowl games.
Players in 2013 Upper Deck Quantum Football span several generations. Joe Namath, Barry Sanders, Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Jerry Rice, EJ Manuel, Geno Smith, John Elway and Steve Young are among the big names on the checklist.
Upper Deck has used the Quantum name before, but in conjunction with parallel sets. This is its debut as a brand of its own.
