2014 Upper Deck Football CardsBrand: Upper Deck Football
2014 Upper Deck Football delivers some of the first cards of the new rookie crop. The college release includes a trio autographs per hobby box and the return of interactive Predictor inserts.
Depending on how far you want to delve, the 2014 Upper Deck Football base set can be straightforward or extremely challenging. The main part of the set includes 50 base cards and 100 Star Rookies. From there, things get a little tougher. Star Rookies SP are inserted 1:12 packs and there are 60 of them. The set is rounded out with another 40 Star Rookies Rare that land 1:120 packs each. And if that weren't challenge enough, there are 25 Star Rookie Variations (1:120 packs) that have a different photo. Star Rookies also have autographed versions.
Base cards and Star Rookies have a Glossy parallel that's numbered to 10.
UD Authentics Rookies are numbered to 575 with two in every box. These also have autographed copies.
Rookie Lettermen Signatures are the lone autographs in the product that aren't parallels of another part of the set. All are numbered but to varying amounts.
For the past couple of years, College Mascot Patch cards have been among the most popular inserts in the company's flagship football set. The manufactured patch concept remains, but it has evolved into College Tribute Patch Cards. These use patches to showcase college football traditions from across the country. At least four of the patch cards are included in every hobby case.
College Football Heroes inserts focus on standouts from the 1970s and 1980s. Two are in every box with 12 in the set. The set also has autographed parallels.

These interactive inserts offer collectors exclusive cards if the featured player is the first picked at their position in the 2014 NFL Draft. Quarterback, running back and wide receiver cards are each inserted 1:440 packs. Predictors are a hobby exclusive.
