McDonalds Sponsoring Canadiens Set

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

After an 18-year run, McDonald’s Restaurants in Canada put an end to their annual in store hockey card promotion prior to last season.  The cards, which were traditionally league-wide sets, were the longest running regional food set in collecting.  This season, McDonald’s and cards are reunited–but only in Quebec and only for one team.

A new series of  2011-12 Montréal Canadiens cards, produced by Upper Deck, were released last week.  The set consists of 25 different cards with five-card packs at $1.49 provided you buy something.  McDonald’s was also handing them out at Habs games for free.

There is also a 25-card gold parallel set, but they’re tough to find, seeded at a rate of one for every 260 packs.

The checklist includes:

1 ALEXEI EMELIN
2 ANDREI KOSTITSYN
3 ANDREI MARKOV
4 BRIAN GIONTA
5 CAREY PRICE
6 CHRIS CAMPOLI
