The GRANDEUR filing is an "intent to use" filing, meaning that there is not a current product called "grandeur," but one might be forthcoming. There's also not much information in the filing about what type of product it will be (beyond of course "trading cards"). So, we'll just have to wait and see what it covers.

The PROPERTY OF filing refers to a memorabilia card type Upper Deck utilized in basketball and hockey products for several years.

Likely, this filing is a hint that it plans on releasing cards like this again in the future.
