2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Trading CardsBrand: Goodwin Champions
Holding it down as one of the more unique trading card releases each year, 2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions is a collecting balancing act of sports, entertainment, history, literature, and many things in between.
Just as in 2017, each Hobby box contains three hits from a group that includes autographs, relics, manufactured patches, or 3D lenticular inserts.
2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Base / Inserts
Covering a very wide assortment of subjects, the 2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions checklist features 100 base cards and 50 high-number Splash of Color short prints.
There are also Minis (1:4 packs) for the base and Goudey cards, as well as Wood Lumberjack (1:20 packs) and Black Wood Lumberjack (#/8) mini parallels.
Another seasoned component of the brand, Goudey inserts combine with the Splash of Color SPs to fall in every other pack. These total 10 cards per box between the two sets.
2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Autographs
Naturally, the eclectic 2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions autograph lineup stretches across many fields. Expected on-card options include Goodwin Autographs (1:52) and hand-numbered Goodwin Inscribed Autographs, as well as Goudey Autographs (1:480), Goudey Sport Royalty Autographs (1:8,000) and Goudey Sport Royalty Dual Autographs (1:25,000). There are also one-of-one Goodwin Cut Signature cards.
More unique, the Genuine Heroes (1:320) line celebrates those men and women who made their mark on the world, like Brenda Berkman, the first female firefighter in New York City, or Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer.
Offering a chase of historical significance, the one-of-one Museum Collection Presidential Legacy FDR Cut Signature Relic is an oversized 5x7 redemption featuring a premium piece from the 1933 World's Fair gift box owned by Franklin D. Roosevelt.
2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Memorabilia
Really showcasing the variety in 2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions, the memorabilia side of the product comes via Goodwin Memorabilia (1:30), Goodwin Memorabilia Dual Swatch (1:240), Goodwin Splash of Color Memorabilia (1:600), Goudey Memorabilia (1:300), Goudey Sport Royalty Premium Memorabilia (1:1,520), and Goudey Sport Royalty Memorabilia Dual Swatch (1:2,880) cards. Each memorabilia set also has a numbered Premium parallel.
2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Relics
For 2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions relics, the choices touch on dogs, travel, historical flights, and even a timeless children's story. Up first, World Traveler Map Relics (1:60) traverses the globe while the numbered National Parks Vintage Map Relics set stays closer to home.
Extending the manufactured insert from 2017, Canine Companions continues the love affair with man's best friend. The tiered patch rarity is broken down into six different groups.
From there, take flight with Museum Collection Aviation Relics (1:480) and Jumbo Relics (1:1,920). The 40-card set offers swatches from items worn in the air during World War II and even some relics from notable trips to space. Meanwhile, the nine-card Museum Collection Presidential Legacy Relics (1:4,000) set features pieces from FDR's 1933 World's Fair wooden box.
Centering on the famed collection of stories, the Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book Illustration Relics (1:3,200) set contains original images from various editions, including the initial 1894 release. The book is further explored with The Jungle Book Sketch Booklets (1:1,440) and Dual Sketch Booklets (1:5,120).
And it wouldn't be Goodwin Champions without the one-of-one Goodwin Masterpieces Art of the Ages cards, featuring hand-drawn recreations of legendary artwork.
2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Lenticular 3D
Also counting as a box hit, the lenticular 3D cards give 2018 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions some extra depth. That includes the 42-card When Robots Rule the World 3D (1:40 overall), in varying tiers, which imagines how different things might be if the robots rise up against humanity. Signed versions from the artist are also in play.
And lastly, the Splash of Color 3D set works with the Upper Deck Bounty Program to award what UD describes as "unbelievable achievement cards." Collectors must collect the very tough 20-card set to redeem the bounty.
