Upper Deck Partners with FremantleMedia Enterprises

to Release Star-Studded American Idol Collectible cards!

 

Unique 138-card set will be in stores on April 21 and includes exclusive

autographed cards of past and present Idols from the No. 1 show in America!

 

North Las Vegas, NV (April 15, 2009) – The Upper Deck Company in partnership with FremantleMedia Enterprises is proud to announce the release of the American Idol collectible trading card set based on television’s most popular show. With more than 26 million viewers per night on FOX, American Idol has established a dedicated fan following and Upper Deck is taking the national phenomenon from the small screen to collectible trading cards.

 

“We’re ecstatic that we have the opportunity to produce the newest American Idol trading cards to hit the market,” said Ana Pereira, Upper Deck’s brand manager for American Idol Collectible Cards. “The show has such a loyal following and has produced such dynamic performers, that we know collectors and fans everywhere will appreciate our collectible set.”

 

The new collectible cards can be found on store shelves beginning Tuesday, April 21, 2009, at Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart, select Toys ‘R Us locations as well as hobby stores. Featuring a variety of Idols past and present, as well as some of the show’s more memorable “novelty” acts, such as William Hung, the set represents a time capsule chronicling some of the most unforgettable auditions and talent to walk on to the American Idol stage. Dedicated fans will find cards featuring their favorite American Idol personalities such as Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson, Clay Aiken and David Archuleta, alongside world-renowned celebrities such as Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Ryan Seacrest.

 

What’s more, the set boasts select autographed cards from this season’s Top 36 finalists as well as several past American Idols.  Sets will include lenticular “makeover” cards showing contestant transformations from their initial auditions to their polished Hollywood week performances, in addition to never-before-seen cards of the top two finalists from every season. The autographed cards fall at a ratio, on average, of 1:12 packs (hobby shops) or 1:65 packs (retail), and feature signatures from Idols including Sparks, Archuleta, Fantasia Barrino, Michael Johns, Carly Smithson and Elliott Yamin. There are five cards per pack with 24 packs per box.
