James Bond 007 Joins Upper Deck's Lineup of Top Licensed Entertainment Properties
Upper Deck Signs Multi-Year Agreement to Produce James Bond Trading Cards and Games

Upper Deck, the leading sports and entertainment company, announced today that it will produce trading cards and trading card games for the highly coveted James Bond property. In the new agreement with EON Productions, Upper Deck will develop products pulling from a rich collection of films that form the backbone of this uniquely British franchise. These films have defined the spy genre since the release of Dr. No in 1962 and have served as a cultural touchpoint in a legacy that maintains popularity into the modern era of cinema.

"James Bond is one of the most iconic characters in the history of entertainment," said Jason Masherah, president of Upper Deck. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide a new and unique line of James Bond trading cards and trading card games to fans around the world."

Upper Deck will provide new ways for fans to enjoy their favorite secret agent. The first James Bond trading card set will hit hobby stores shelves and 007Store.com in early 2019, followed by a release on Upper Deck e-Pack™, the company's patent-pending trading card platform.

Additionally, 007 will be introduced to Legendary®, Upper Deck's critically acclaimed deck-building trading card game, in summer 2019. Players will be able to relive their favorite movie moments while working together to recruit their favorite characters and unravel the nefarious schemes of the most infamous 007 villains.

    JAMES BOND 007 DECK BUILDING GAME ARRIVES IN STYLE AT GEN CON

    UPPER DECK ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF LEGENDARY®: 007, INVITES GEN CON ATTENDEES TO PREVIEW UPCOMING LEGENDARY DXP:007 DIGITAL GAME

    CARLSBAD, Ca. (August 01, 2019) – Upper Deck, the leading entertainment and sports company, announced today that a limited quantity of the company’s highly anticipated James Bond-themed Legendary deck building game will be available for sale at the Gen Con gaming convention in Indianapolis this weekend.

    Upper Deck’s newest Legendary release marks the first-ever James Bond deck building game and includes content from four classic 007 films; Goldfinger, The Man With The Golden Gun, GoldenEye and Casino Royale.

    The Legendary: 007 game allows players to recruit powerful heroes from Q Branch, acquire gadgets, build up power to defeat Villains, and take on missions in an attempt to bring down evil Masterminds. Upper Deck will bring the game to life with a 007-themed booth at Gen Con Indy, where fans can sign up for a free demo and get a sneak preview of the upcoming digital version of the game, Legendary DXP: 007.

    Gen Con is the largest and longest running tabletop game convention in North America, attracting over 60,000 attendees to Indianapolis for 17,000 ticketed gaming events that take place over the span of just four days, starting today.

    The availability of the new 007 deck building game comes just weeks after the release of Upper Deck’s first Bond trading card set, James Bond Collection, which includes characters and scenes from a variety of movies across the Bond film franchise and an extensive roster of actor autographs.

    Fans can pick up a copy of Legendary: 007, a James Bond Deck Building Game in the Upper Deck booth at Gen Con this weekend and get a glimpse at Legendary DXP:007, the digital version of the game that is scheduled to release later this Summer.
