Upper Deck Announces Release of Pro Shots Sports Figurines
Upper Deck issued a press release Tuesday announcing the debut of their latest sports figure product line, Pro Shots. Pro Shots will feature two of Upper Deck's most high profile spokesmen - Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan. The Pro Shots Product Line will pay homage to these two superstars by depicting the defining moments in each of their respective professional sports careers that cemented their status as legends.
Upper Deck utilized 3D face scanning technology to assist in making each of the 6 inch tall Pro Shots figures as realistic looking as possible. Each Pro Shots figure will be individually packaged inside a clear “in the moment" diorama-style display box, and will be paired with a commerative Upper Deck trading card of the event being depicted.
Michael Jordan will be featured twice in the Pro Shots set. The first MJ figurine, “1998 NBA Finals Last Shot" , will celebrate his incredible Game 6 Heroics in the 1998 NBA Finals. The other MJ figurine, “1985 Slam Dunk Competition", will chronicle his first of many appearances in the annual NBA Slam Dunk Event that would eventually earn him the distinction as being one of the greatest dunkers of all time.
Tiger Woods will also be featured twice in Pro Shots. “2000 PGA Championship" will, as the name implies, celebrate his PGA Championship back in 2000.
