Autographed Hockey Cards Part of UD Show Plans

Wayne Gretzky Priority Signings card Upper Deck has created some special autographed "Priority Signings" hockey cards for distribution at a show this weekend.

Upper Deck and hobby retailers in the U.S. and Canada say they have enjoyed a tremendous season of hockey card sales.

They’ll try to give back to collectors at the NHL Spring Expo in Toronto this weekend. The NHL Spring Expo brings in thousands of die-hard hockey collectors from all over North America, but also from as far away as Europe and Asia.

Upper Deck will have new trading card and collectible products on display at its booth and has announced plans for the semi-annual wrapper redemption program set to take place at the show.

Collectors who open a box of the 2007-08 NHL Fleer Hot Prospects or 2007-08 NHL UD ICE at the Upper Deck booth will receive a random NHL “Priority Signings” autograph card. Upper Deck has pulled out some of the biggest names in hockey for the giveaway. Each card is sequentially numbered and limited to varied amounts. This promotion is limited to one card per person per day.

"It’s always exciting to have this show in the midst of the hockey playoffs,” said Karvin Cheung, Upper Deck’s Hockey product manager. “It’s also exciting for us to get a chance to spend time with collectors who are so passionate about the sport and our collectibles.

“As we get near the close of yet another exciting hockey season, we want our collectors to know how much we appreciate their business and the ‘Priority Signings’ autograph cards are a great way for us to give something back.”
