The video of Jack’s magical moment immediately went viral and has already been viewed more than seven million times on YouTube.Well now Upper Deck has created a rookie card of Jack.“Jack is the type of inspirational athlete who absolutely deserves an Upper Deck rookie card,” said Upper Deck’s sports marketing manager, Chris Carlin. “Upper Deck does not want to risk Jack’s amateur status with the NCAA so the card we created will not be part of a mainstream trading card release. Jack had a larger than life moment on the field that day for Nebraska which is why Upper Deck is creating a limited number of promotional blow-up rookie cards for Jack to sign and use for charitable purposes. Upper Deck is proud to play a small role increasing awareness in Jack’s cause and we are excited to be a part of ‘Team Jack!’” Team Jack will be releasing details on how fans can bid on these signed promotional cards in the coming weeks. In the meantime, Upper Deck encourages everyone to check out the “Team Jack” official website and to like the “Team Jack” Facebook page.
