Upper Deck Confident People Will Want To Buy Tiger Items


All the polls might reflect that Tiger Woods is at his lowest approval ratings, but the memorabilia market for Woods' items hasn't cooled in the same fashion.

Upper Deck spokesman Terry Melia said that the company, which has exclusive memorabilia rights for Woods, will sell range balls hit by Tiger with an autograph in a display case for $499, autographed Black TW Nike hats for $999.99, Tiger autographed 2010 golf cleats (size 11) for $1,399.99 and the same style Nike Dri-Fit shirt Woods will wear on Masters Sunday autographed for $1,799.99.

Melia said if Woods wins the Masters, the company will sell the same shirt autographed with the inscription "2010 Masters Champion" for $1,999.99 as well as Tiger autographed Masters pin flags for $1,299.99.

Aside from the flags, which are limited to 500, all other signed items are limited to 100 or less, Melia said.

Melia said Woods is scheduled to sign the items the week after the Masters concludes.
