Tiger Woods autographed cards in…hockey set?

The timing couldn't be better for Upper Deck.  On the heels of Tiger Woods' first win of 2008, the company secured some fresh autographed trading cards for it's upcoming products, including a special hockey set that includes a number of cards decidedly...not hockey.

Upper Deck's Chris Carlin: "We recently had a signing with Tiger Woods and received back a limited amount of the 2008-09 NHL Champ’s mini-signature cards.  They packed out as exchange cards, but we will begin fulfilling any requests received for them next week.  It will be interesting to see how activity goes on a smaller card like this of Tiger.  He signed four different versions with brown, purple, blue and black backs.  Each of the cards is VERY limited."

Woods has an exclusive arrangement with Upper Deck.  Champs hockey singles, including at least one Tiger autographed card, are already showing up on eBay.
