Perhaps the most important thing to know about these dynamite mixed-media serigraphs on canvas is that they marked the first time ever that Tiger Woods endorsed and signed any limited-edition fine-art prints. The Upper Deck Authenticated (UDA) series by renowned artist Carlo Beninati features Tiger's flamboyant gold-Sharpie "9-10" signatures—which, incredibly, measure as large as 7-1/2" x 8-1/2"! Showcasing gorgeous giclee colors and thick texture, the terrific fist-pumping portraits are set against sunset seascape backdrops and could easily be mistaken for actual original paintings. Each serigraph spans 2-1/2 feet x 3-1/3 feet, is hand-numbered out of 175 in the lower left corner, and carries a UDA hologram sticker along with Beninati's signature in the lower-right corner.
Condition-wise, it is important to note that every print in this collection bears a small degree of surface wear evidently relating to the original application of a clear-coat glossy veneer as part of the serigraph production process. These distressed areas (visible in the images presented here) are often relegated to the background yet do in some cases also impact the foreground image of Woods. A few prints also bear a strip of tape along the border that could be matted out for framed display. Accompanied by 18 of the 20 UDA Certificates of Authenticity (2 missing).
