Houdini is a 2011 Goodwin Champion

Upper Deck has released a new series of "retro" trading cards, the 2011 Goodwin Champions. Among the eclectic collection of sports stars, politicians, and animals we find Houdini. The Houdini card comes as a full size trading card and in a vintage tobacco card "mini" style. Pretty cool.


The photo Upper Deck uses for their Houdini card is a colorized still from his first Hollywood feature, The Grim Game (1919).

  1. Maybe this card lists Houdini's correct birth date (unlike the Topps American Heritage Houdini card, which has it as March 22).

  2. I just got the card (the full-size version). This one has the date wrong, too! It's listed as March 12, 1874. Unbelievable.

  3. Oh, my, I missed that. You're right. It says March 12. WTF?
