Upper Deck Revolutionizes Industry by Launching Upper Deck e-Pack™
e-Pack is an Innovative New Way to Collect, Store and Catalog Trading Cards Online, Bridging the Physical and Digitial World of Trading Cards
CARLSBAD, Ca. (January 28, 2016) – Upper Deck has revolutionized the trading card industry once again by unveiling e-Pack. With e-Pack, users can instantly purchase and open packs online at anytime, from anywhere. Entire card collections can be easily viewed, sorted and stored digitally, eliminating the need for any physical storage space, while still providing an exciting pack opening experience. What makes e-Pack’s patent pending technology truly unique is the ability to have actual physical versions of digital cards mailed out at any time.
Upper Deck’s popular flagship brand, UD Series One Hockey (UD1), kicks off the e-pack launch today in conjunction with the 2016 Honda NHL® All-Star celebration in Nashville, TN. UD1 e-packs will offer never before seen exclusive content including ‘Code to Greatness’ and ‘Instant Impressions’ inserts, as well as foil board base cards and Young Guns parallels featuring Connor McDavid and other top rookies.
“Never before has a company seamlessly connected the digital and physical world of trading card collecting” said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. There is no way to replace an autographed card or a card with a piece of game used jersey in the digital world. Using e-Pack, collectors can now easily open packs, boxes and even cases online, and then decide if they want cards delivered directly to them.”
Collectors are also able to link e-Pack with their COMC.com (CheckOutMyCards.com) account. By connecting e-Pack with COMC, collectors can easily post and sell cards without the hassle of scanning card images or having to ship them. Through the COMC platform, cards can be sold online and shipped directly from COMC to the buyer.
To ensure a safe and secure environment for all e-Pack transactions, Upper Deck has teamed with Dynamics Inc., an award winning company known for providing advanced payment platforms that deliver the most secure and seamless experience available today.
