Pittsburgh, PA. September 12, 2013 -- This week Dynamics introduced another innovative reward experience for sports fans and collectors with new Upper Deck branded ePlate® credit cards. Each new ePlate® card features a unique Upper Deck Football, Baseball, Basketball, Hockey or Golf design on the front of the card. In an industry first – the magnetic stripe is no longer the plain dark brown stripe we have all grown accustomed to, but a sports graphic that compliments the front of the card.
"Every day, our fans search online, communicate with other fans and attend sports shows in an effort to collect Upper Deck sports trading cards. Now with these new Upper Deck ePlate® cards, we're taking our collectors' enthusiasm for their favorite sport to a whole new level," said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. "On top of the already successful UD Infinite cards packs which only ePlate® cardholders can earn, the new Upper Deck credit cards bring an instant recognition to our sports card collectors' passion for their favorite sport – every time they use the card."
"Sports collectors are always looking for one-of-a-kind experiences, experiences which provide them a connection to their favorite sport," said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics Inc. "What better way to extend that enthusiasm than to offer fans the only electronic card – the ePlate® – that powers their passion."
When the Upper Deck Experience™ reward is selected, consumers earn exclusive ePlate® digital trading cards for every $5 spent using their Dynamics ePlate® Visa® card. The digital cards are delivered instantly to a mobile phone after the completed purchase. When all digital cards in a set are collected, the consumer receives an exclusive UD Infinite foil pack. UD Infinite trading cards are only available to ePlate® card holders. Randomly inserted into packs are autographs of sports legends. Collectors can also trade or buy digital cards to complete their set even faster.
Dynamics will be showcasing its ePlate® sports cards at the upcoming Philadelphia Sportscard & Memorabilia Show in Valley Forge, Philadelphia and the Collector's Showcase of America (CSA) in Chantilly, Virginia. Consumers who apply for the ePlate® credit cards at these shows will earn an UD Infinite card pack.
The Dynamics ePlate® Visa® card and Upper Deck ePlate® Visa® cards are issued by UMB Bank and operate on the Visa® network. Customers may apply for the Dynamics Upper Deck cards by visiting www.dynamicsinc.com/upperdeckcards?rm=psa.
