Overwatch League Highlights Card Upper Deck

Overwatch League trading cards have officially been released. This is the first esports league-licensed trading card product developed by Upper Deck. The trading card set can be purchased through the Upper Deck e-pack, a platform where fans can buy and open packs of trading cards anytime and anywhere in the world either through a PC or a mobile phone.

This new product celebrates the inaugural season of the Overwatch League with a 12-card base set. There are also multiple inserts that celebrate many of the season’s key team and player moments. These include the Team Leaders, League Leaders, and Season1 Highlights. There are even unique Holo F/X cards that feature Overwatch League All-Stars placed on a layered holographic background.

OWL fans have the chance to obtain foil parallels of the base set as well as the Infra-Sight cards that have player images printed on clear acetate.

For fans who prefer items that are more exclusive, or even super rare cards, the e-Pack platform of Upper Deck comes with an extensive achievement program. Through the program, fans get the chance to obtain items like printing players and autographed player and team memorabilia. There are also the “1 of 1” Shadow Box Relic cards and the CPU chips that are enclosed in oversized trading cards.

Those who can complete specific sets can earn autographed jerseys from players including the OWL inaugural season MVP Seong-Hyun “Jjonak” Bang of the New York Excelsior or the 2018 Grand Finals MVO Jun-Young “Profit” Park of the London Spitfire.

In addition, to celebrate the release of this new product Upper Deck is offering a special bonus. Those who register for an UpperDeckEpack.com account between June 19 and July 1 receive a free OWL digital 1-card pack every day until July 8 by simply logging on. Each pack contains one player from each of the 20 teams, giving collectors a better chance to complete the exclusive 20-card promotional set.

In a press statement, Upper Deck President Jason Masherah said the company is truly excited to partner with the Overwatch League for what is their first esports agreement to deliver a new and innovative product. He added that this is indeed an excellent way "to celebrate Upper Deck’s 30th anniversary, and we look forward to working with the talented team at Activision Blizzard for many years to come.”

Meanwhile, Blizzard Entertainment Head of esports Licensing Daniel Siegel said that the collaboration allows OWL to offer fans worldwide the chance to collect and trade exclusive cards and collectibles that feature their favorite team and players. He went on to say that this deal is a “milestone for our companies, and for esports as a whole.”
