2016 Goodwin Champions to Honor True Heroes – It seems fitting on the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, that Upper Deck would announce the inclusion of a special tribute set in next year’s Goodwin Champions.
Through the years, Goodwin has developed a reputation of chronicling history with a unique array of relics, inserts and autographed sets. In 2016, the brand will pay homage to members of “The Greatest Generation” by being immortalized on cardboard.
A special autograph insert set honoring over a dozen living veterans that bravely served their country during World War II. Each will have hard-signed autograph cards in the set.
A truly touching tribute to these true American heroes! Mr. Lauren Bruner is one of the heroes who will be signing for the set and his story is pretty amazing. Bruner is one of only 333 sailors to have survived the attack on the U.S.S. Arizona; of those that survived only 9 remain alive today. Read his complete story here.
Look for Bruner’s and other autographs of Word War II veterans in the Museum Collection Signatures set in 2016 Goodwin Champions by Upper Deck.
