2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Trading CardsBrand: Goodwin Champions
Like its Goodwin predecessors, the 2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions checklist is hard to put a label on. Luckily for collectors, the only thing required is to bust some packs (or boxes) of the intriguing set. Every hobby box delivers a total of three hits.
2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Base & Inserts
Leading the way is a 150-card base set featuring top athletes and other names of note. Base Mini parallels fall around 1:4 packs while Black & White short prints (base #101-150) combine with Goudey (1:8 packs) cards to drop in every other pack. Other miniature base versions include Canvas Minis (99 copies), Cloth Lady Luck Minis (#/25), Black Metal Magician Minis (#/17), Wood Lumberjack Minis (#/8) and one-of-one Gold Presidential Minis.
The main Goudey insert set consists of Goudey Animals (1:13 packs) and Goudey Presidents (1:22 packs). 3-D Lenticular Wonders of the Universe (1:32 packs) in a new choice that features 42 cards with an outer space focus.
2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Autographs
In addition to the main Goodwin Autographs (1:67 packs) set, more limited choices include Inscribed Autographs (hand #'d), Black & White Autographs (1:1,440 packs) and Goudey Autographs (1:640 packs).
Tying in world-class athletes, the Goudey Sport Royalty Autographs (1:3,200 packs) insert highlights big names like Michael Jordan. Meanwhile, Museum Collection World War II Signatures (1:244 packs) honors another group of heroes. A plus for many collectors, all the autographs in Goodwin are hard-signed. The rarest of the bunch is the one-of-one Goodwin Cut Signatures set.
2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Memorabilia
Of course, 2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions does not skimp on the memorabilia. The Goodwin Memorabilia (1:36 packs), Goudey Memorabilia (1:150 packs), and Goudey Sports Royalty Memorabilia (1:1,600 packs) sets are the main options in the product. Black & White, Premium and Dual editions add to the totals.
2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Relics
Celebrating the troops once more, Museum Collection World War II Relics documents moments and individuals from WWII. In addition, 2017 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions unveils several new premium relics to the hobby. Going way back in time is the Ancient Currencies Relics (1:1,082 packs) set which contains actual coins from Ancient Greece, the Roman and Ottoman Empire, and even some authentic pirate treasure.
Adding map pieces from across the globe are the World Traveler Map Relics (1:53 packs) cards, while the National Parks Map Relics (#/90 or less) insert takes a domestic approach with themes like Yosemite (#/90), Yellowstone (#/72), the Smoky Mountains (#/34) and the Rocky Mountains (#/15). Canine Companions is a manufactured patch line celebrating dogs. It is also the start of a three-year continuation set in Goodwin Champions.
