Sports of all sorts, monsters, the start of life are all part of 2014 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions, a product few will argue is nothing short of eclectic. Hobby boxes come with the promise of three hits that are either autographs, memorabilia cards, manufactured patch cards, original art cards or World War I relics.

The 2014 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions base set has 130 total cards. On top of this there are 25 short prints and 25 super short prints.

Mini Cards return at a rate of 1:2 packs. They come in five different styles. There are basic minis, Lady Luck Back, Canvas, Magician Back (#/4) and Presidential Back (1/1).

All autographs in 2014 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions come with on-card signatures. More common cards fall under the Goodwin Autographs (1:36 packs) and Baseball Prospect Signatures (1:60 packs) banners. Sport Royalty Autographs (1:600 packs) and Goudey Autographs (1:400 packs) are among the tougher signatures to find.

Goodwin Memorabilia cards come with both single- (1:14 packs) and dual-swatches (1:320 packs). Rarer Sport Royalty follow a similar pattern. Single-swatch cards land 1:320 packs while dual-swatch cards fall 1:2,560 packs.

Museum Collection Relics return in 2014 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions, this time featuring memorabilia pieces from World War I. Among the items being embedded into cards are pieces of U.S. Army trousers, barbed wire, an Imperial German spiked helmet cover, a British Commonwealth Officer's cap and a gas mask lens.

After concluding the Animal Kingdom patch series, a new set launches with 2014 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions. Origin of Species Patch Cards has a three-year plan. It kicks off with The Dawn of Complex Life. In 2015 it carries on to Age of Dinosaurs and Age of Mammals in 2016. Patches come in five tiers, each with different rarities: Reptiles, Fish, Cambrian Explosion, Anthropods, Tetrapods and Cephalopods.

Art of the Ages returns with original art cards that recreate classic paintings from the like of Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and Leonardo da Vinci.
