Products & Purchases
You can use the site for free, but users are encouraged to buy "Insider Access."
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that registration is free, but the site also features an Insider Access paid subscription level that gives you the ability to purchase licensed team- and player-specific merchandise and other extras. You can also become an Insider by purchasing Upper Deck card products in stores and entering a code from the wrapper or by purchasing a digital pack bundle on the site. Digital packs range from $5.95 to $54.95 and include online sports cards and gold coins, which are used as one of the site's two forms of currency.
Is It Any Good?
It can be a little bit cumbersome traveling around Upper Deck U because it's not always initially clear what there is to do in each section as you enter. However, the site does have a number of places to go, a good array of games to play, and some interesting ways to meet other members. Plus card fans will find plenty of entertainment: Since the site is sponsored by a sports card company, they're likely to enjoy having the ability to view and add to their online collection.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
