“88’ Slam Dunk” is the first three dimensional signature Shadow Box of Michael Jordan. The outer acrylic layer features a young ‘Air Jordan’. The middle signed layer exhibits Jordan as he flew through the air on the way to a perfect score of 50. Jordan’s shadow is revealed on the back layer, which depicts the crowd that looked on at Jordan’s feat. This multi-layered shadow box contains images on each layer with the all-important signature housed on the middle clear acrylic sheet. Michael Jordan has signed his name in Silver paint pen. The layers of the shadow box are housed in a black metal frame making the overall framed dimension “20.5 x 2.5 x 16.5”. The 3-D Shadow Box Collection by Upper Deck Authenticated is sure to be fan favorites and the topic of conversation when viewed for the first time. Jordan’s signature was witnessed under UDA’s Five-Step Authentication Process.
When Upper Deck released Upper Deck SPx Football in the fall of 2009, card collectors were introduced to the first ever Shadow Box card. These innovative three dimensional trading cards were a massive hit within the card industry. Like any successful invention, the competition quickly followed suit and began adding this technology to their product releases. Five years later, Upper Deck Authenticated has taken the 2.5” x 3.5” trading card technology and transformed it into a 16” x 20” piece of wall memorabilia.
