What's Hot in 2012-13 Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball

What’s Hot in 2012-13 Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball

When it debuted in 2003-04, Upper Deck Exquisite was the benchmark by which high-end sports cards were set. While the ante has been upped in recent years, the brand still commands a lot of respect within the hobby. Upper Deck continues to use it to showcase a steady flow of big-name signatures, innovative designs that show a lot of creativity. 2012-13 Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball continues with that tradition focusing largely on past stars with a sprinkling of young players.

Much of the set's buzz surrounds the multi-panel 16-signature cards. Oddly it's not the ones with 16 different signers that are getting the most attention. It's those featuring 16 autographs from Michael Jordan and LeBron James. The James card surfaced immediately and was immediately listed on eBay. Collectors have given it a mixed response, but sometimes it just takes people to talk about something to make it stand out.

Like a lot of Upper Deck's recent hoops products, Michael Jordan autographs are surprisingly plentiful. Of course, this is all relative given the set's limited production run and hefty price tag. He is featured throughout the set, often with higher print runs than a lot of other players.

Besides Jordan and James, other big-name signers in 2012-13 Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball include Bill Russell, Karl Malone, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Anfernee Hardaway, Allen Iverson and Julius Irving.

Every box of six cards comes with five autographs.
