Upper Deck Goodwin Champions

I love the retro-styled sports cards, like Topps' Heritage and Allen and Ginter, and Upper Deck's Goudey and Philly sets. Now, UD has Goodwin Champions coming down the pike. This set covers all sports, even UFC, surfing, and martial arts. Each wax box will include two memorabilia cards, one autograph card (signed on the card, like the Jordan shown), twenty mini cards, and ten short-printed subset cards (including two super shorts prints), on average! Each case will include a DNA memorabilia card (like hair from the mane of horse racing legend Smarty Jones). There will even be randomly inserted "landmarks" memorabilia cards, with items like sand from Omaha Beach or coal from the Titanic.
