These cards aren't cheap, but they are for serious collectors looking for the finest football cards ever made. With three hard-signed autograph cards per box, and a bonus pack including another limited single or dual-signed card. Among the autograph subsets are the "Exquisite Endorsements Signatures" featuring cards signed by Ben Roethlisberger, Ray Lewis, and Peyton Manning. "Exquisite Signature Nameplates" feature cards from Eli Manning, Dan Marino, and Adrian Peterson. The card featured here, of Drew Brees with the inscription "Cool Brees," is part of the Exquisite Inscriptions" subset. "Ensemble Signatures" are multi-signed cards of the year's top rookies.  These cards are in hobby shops now. You can find more information at UpperDeck.com.
