What’s Hot in 2014 Upper Deck Exquisite Golf
Exquisite is a brand that needs no introduction in the collecting world. The premium offering from Upper Deck was recently extended to golf with 2014 UD Exquisite Golf. Although the price tag of $600+ is indeed steep, the cards carry on the legacy of the Exquisite name. Top names in the golf world headline the product with on-card autographs, including Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Rory McIlroy.
Fresh off his 2014 Open Championship win, Rory McIlroy is the clear early favorite for collectors of 2014 Exquisite Golf. The young golf phenom looks to be the next in line for golf's superstar tag and his card values reflect that. Although most of the cards in the product are low-numbered, McIlroy collectors are treated a large variety of signed cards. The main attraction is his Rookie Auto Swatch card, numbered to 99. Not to be outdone, a Signed Jumbo Swatch (#/25) for McIlroy already sold for $1,199.
Obviously Rory McIloy is not the only big name featured in this luxury product. Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus are golf heavyweights and plenty of other notable names populate the checklist. Michael Jordan, a longtime fan of golf, is again prominently featured. Not to overshadowed by the men, the LPGA is well-covered with multiple female golfers, including Michelle Wie, Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis.
From there, collectors can pick between several card designs, including booklets, shadowbox cards and many different autographed relic options. Despite being the only cards in the product that are not numbered, Signature Masterpieces offer an ornate design and gold ink. Even among these premium cards, the bold foil look makes them stand out.
The high price point will certainly limit the market for those looking to break a box, but for average collectors, singles offer an appealing option. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the most popular cards in 2014 Exquisite Golf.
