Limited Offer, Schedule Reservations Now
Upper Deck, a premier sports and entertainment company, is leading the way by allowing
fans to send in items to be signed by Seattle Mariners All-Star outfielder Ichiro Suzuki,
as part of the company’s Exclusive Signature Series. This program enables sports fans
and collectors the chance to commemorate a special moment in time by getting their personal
possessions autographed by some of the world’s most recognized athletes.
"The Exclusive Signature Service program provides fans with an opportunity to have a
special keepsake autographed such as a photo they may have taken with the athlete at some
point, or a program or ticket from a game they attended," says Michael Gilstrap, product
manager for Upper Deck Authenticated (UDA). "This unique offer provides fans with access
to top athletes that is rarely gained."
UDA is the industry’s most trusted source for autographed products with its patented five-step
process guaranteeing the authenticity of every autographed item. The same process will be applied
to the Exclusive Signature Service program. Each autographed item will receive a UDA hologram,
which includes a unique serial number that matches a hologram affixed to an accompanying certificate
In order to participate, consumers must reserve a spot to ensure that their order is processed by
calling 800-551-8220. Fans and collectors wishing to send in their own item to be autographed by
Ichiro need to have their order into Upper Deck by August 21, 2004.
