Upper Deck's Third Golden Ticket Found

May 22 2008 11:07AMDr. Thomas Haveron of Warren, N.J., is the third winner of Upper Deck's Exquisite Experience Promotion.

Dr. Haveron realized one of his biggest thrills recently when opening a case of 2007-08 SP Rookie Edition. As he enjoyed going through all the different Rookie Cards in the product, he saw something very different. He had pulled a golden ticket for a once-in-a-lifetime experience offered by Upper Deck. His immediate response was, "Oh my gosh, should I call Beckett?"

Those who are lucky enough to find a golden ticket will be treated to the Exquisite Experience. Dr. Haveron has joined two other lucky collectors who will be flown to Dallas for the pack-out of 2007-08 NBA Exquisite. He will get to meet Upper Deck staff that developed the product, and then it really gets exciting. He will be able to assemble his own box of 2007-08 Exquisite Collection Basketball.

Imagine having hundreds of thousands of dollars in rare trading cards in front of you and just a short time to put together the box you want. Which five cards do you choose? A Kevin Durant rookie autograph patch card? A Logoman patch card?

"The Exquisite Experience promotion has really captured die-hard collectors' imaginations," says Chris Carlin, Upper Deck hobby marketing manager. "We've got three very excited collectors set to go for the mid-June pack-out, and we'll draw a winner from our online entries on Friday, May 23. We've heard reports the final golden ticket from 2007-08 NBA UD Black has been found and is being sold online. We're not sure who the last two winners will be, but one thing is certain, they are in store for an unforgettable day."
