Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, Upper Deck released images of its Military Machines insert set that will be part of the 2012 Goodwin Champions set that will be released this summer.

There will be 25 cards in the set and it will contain cards honoring airplanes, Jeeps, patrol boats, tanks and helicopters. Famous battleships like the USS Maine, USS Arizona and USS Indianapolis will be featured. Civil War buffs will enjoy the inclusion of the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia.

The cards will be randomly inserted in packs of Goodwin Champions.

Previously, Upper Deck has worked with non-profit organizations like Operation Gratitude to donate sealed packs of UD product for inclusion in care packages to soldiers serving overseas. The company restated its commitment to the troops and will continue to donate cards, but this year wanted to take it a step further.

In a news release, Upper Deck product development manager Grant Sandground said the Military Machines inserts “touch upon historical and cultural themes that are not often offered in mainstream products.”

“These amazing machines represent an important time line of achievements in military engineering throughout the 19th and 20th century and we’re proud to incorporate this slice of history into 2012 Goodwin Champions,” Sandground said. “We hope members of our armed forces and military enthusiasts enjoy the inclusion of this insert series.”
