Jerry West Joins the Upper Deck Authenticated Basketball Roster

“Mr. Clutch” gets the Upper Deck Authenticated treatment with an incredible new collection of autographed memorabilia items!


CARLSBAD, Ca. (March 20, 2018) – Upper Deck Authenticated, the leader in premium autographed memorabilia and collectibles, announced today that NBA legend Jerry West has joined the ever-growing roster of Upper Deck superstar athletes. The company’s impressive portfolio of NBA icons includes Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Ben Simmons, to name a few.

West’s long and successful history in the NBA began with an incredible 14-year All-Star career with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he carried the team to the 1972 NBA Championship and was awarded NBA Finals MVP in 1969 – making him the only player in NBA history to receive the award while on a non-winning team. West went on to coach the Lakers and serve as the team’s general manager, where he created five notable championship teams. He also served as general manager for the Memphis Grizzlies before helping shape the Golden State Warriors into the titans they are today. West is also a two-time recipient of the NBA Executive of the Year award, and currently serves on the L.A. Clippers executive board.

To honor West’s legacy, Upper Deck Authenticated created an incredible lineup of innovative and unique autographed items. A few standouts include a framed NBA Logo Patch piece that showcases an image of West next to his iconic NBA logo silhouette. A signed replica mini-backboard includes the inscription “Mr. Clutch,” and is the first of its kind in UDA’s mini-backboard collection. A signed Leather Head basketball comes complete with a large hand-signed autograph in thick silver and replicates the original lace-up style basketball used when Dr. James Naismith invented the game. The new collection also includes “The Show,” the largest known autographed memorabilia piece. This showstopper pays tribute not only to West’s playing days, but to his influential time as an NBA executive as well.

“Jerry West is one of the most iconic players in NBA history,” said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. “We are excited to add authentic signed memorabilia from West to our expansive NBA portfolio, and to offer innovative new collectibles that NBA fans around the world can enjoy for years to come.”

The new collection of Jerry West authentic memorabilia can be found exclusively at and select UDA certified dealers.
