Upper Deck Celebrates Newly Enshrined Hall-of-Famer Allen Iverson with Impressive Lineup of Premium Collectibles and Memorabilia
Collection Includes Autographed Images, Limited-Edition Sneakers, Game-Used Floor Displays, Authentic Jerseys, Basketballs and More
CARLSBAD, Ca. (September 13, 2016) – Upper Deck, the leader in authentic memorabilia and collectibles, has announced the release of a new premium autograph collection commemorating the career of former Philadelphia 76ers point guard and Hall-of-Famer, Allen Iverson.
Rarely has a player listed at six foot tall or under had such an impact on the game of basketball. As courageous as he was talented, Allen Iverson led the 76ers to The Finals just five years after being selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft. Over the course of his NBA career, Iverson earned four scoring titles, 11 trips to the NBA All-Star Game, two All-Star Game MVP’s and the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award.
“Iverson left an indelible mark on the culture of the game, one that resonates with today’s generation of players just as much as it did when he made his NBA debut in 1996,” said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. “We have captured some of the most memorable moments from Iverson’s career and created pieces that we hope his fans will cherish for a lifetime.”
Highlights from the new Allen Iverson collection include a 36” x 15” signed “Philly’s Finest” image which captures many of Iverson’s basketball talents against a city skyline backdrop, a visually stunning art piece entitled ‘The Show’ that features an extraordinary 3-foot wide Iverson autograph and a “Progression to Greatness” curve display that incorporates a signed piece of 76ers game-used floor that he once played on. Sneakerheads can rejoice in the return of Iverson’s most recognizable sneakers, the Question, which have been hand signed and numbered to just 30 pairs. Authentic signed basketballs, jerseys and a museum-quality signed Enterbay figurine round out this incredible collection, available exclusively at upperdeckstore.com/Allen-Iverson
