I've Got A Bounty For Ya!

**Pirates Voice***

You like collecting? You like hunting for booty? Well, not Beyonce but  for some true treasure. The kind you would set a Bounty out for....

Well look no further as Upper Deck has you covered!

Welcome to Upper Deck's Bounty program!

I will take all of you mates on a quick breakdown of what it's all about. It's so easy even Captain Jack Sparrow can handle it.

The first thing you do is open up some amazing UD products like the two newest ones in Upper Deck's 007 James Bond Collection and 2019 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions.

Then go to

(we apologize for the glare on the pictures)
That brings you to this screen. Go create yourself an account mates, you're gonna need it.

Once there, go over to the missions part on the left hand side and click on it. A drop down menu like this here one appears.

Since we mentioned the 007 product, let's check that one out. So click on the 007 product. It shows us all 50 James Bond Collection Base Set Gold Tint Acetate Parallel cards

Now go look. look real hard and hope you actually found some of these cards in your packs and boxes and that you hopefully didn't sell them already.

You found a couple? Great me hardees! Now scroll down under the picture of the card or cards you are holding in your hands
and you will see a redeem option under the picture of the card(s) you are holding. On the back of the card you are hanging onto that matches the one on the screen, there is a code on the back, scratch it off to reveal your true code. Click the redeem button and type in your code. And that's it. Your card has been added to your collection of 007 cards online.

Now the key is to collect all 50 of them before 10 other collector pirates do. The bounty has been set!

Be one of the first 10 to collect all 50 of those 007 James Bond Bounty cards, and you me mates can claim yourself a great booty. A Denise Richards one. Well, her autograph. Sorry. But, her autograph is still quite the booty for collecting all of those cards. And it's ALL FREE. FREE I tell ya!! Well, other than the cards you have to buy to collect all of these.

That's as simple as it gets. This is not no redemption card thing. This isn't collecting lame points from a lame product for lame prizes that you pay shipping for even though you have already paid for the box of cards that card should have already been in. Sorry for the rant mates, those points make me go ARRRRRRRRR and make me blood boil. This isn't anything but an extra reward for collecting Upper Deck products. Shouldn't the rest of the card companies do this?!

It's a great easy to learn program that runs across multiple Upper Deck products. Don't go messin' around with those sandwich ones. Just go check out the home of the Upper Deck Bounty website to see the missions and which products are offered and which booty or booties you may want to grab. Bloggers note, **Upper Deck does not endorse grabbing actual booties***

It's both rewarding to the collectors who can get a free collectible for completing a mission and great for the card shops who sell the product for collectors to buy. Upper Deck is always got your back. Not your booty. Once again, they don't endorse that.

Notre Dame Hits ePack!

Interested in the newest Upper Deck epack product Notre Dame football 88? Well, we are here to walk you through how you can score some packs if it's your first time using it.

First you need to go to . First thing you need to do is set up a free account that takes seconds.

After submitting your info, BOOM, this will come on like you had scored a goal. This is the first achievement just for signing up. 

Then you simply just need to go to the store option on the home page and select your product option and click the down selection under that product to choose how much you want to buy. It's that simple.

Then you just click open pack and hope you see some sirens blaring red. That means you hit the good stuff. This picture below is just an example of how to click open.

Some of the cards will always remain digital like the base, but you can combine those to make them something physical you can take home. That just requires you to link a “Check Out My Cards” account to Upper Deck e-Pack and transfer physical cards to COMC. Once transferred to COMC, you can have the cards shipped, or sell them on the COMC marketplace.  Once again, pretty simple.

Here is some info on the product and what you can find in it!
  • Find Gold and Blue (#'d to 88) parallels of the entire Base set.
  • Look for Defining Moments inserts highlighting key plays and moments from Notre Dame's 1988 Championship run!
  • Discover rare autographs from members of the 1988 Championship team with South Bend Standouts - Signatures Parallel (#'d to 25) and Fighting Irish Signatures cards.
There are also different levels of items to score as well. Just check out these images if you need to be more tempted....
