NHL Card Show Set for Atlanta

NHL All Star game logo A lineup change for the autographs at this weekend’s NHL All Star game trading card and memorabilia show.

Due to a scheduling conflict, Chicago Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews will not be available to sign free autographs inside the Upper Deck booth on Sunday. Toews’ teammate, Patrick Kane, will now sign for two hours (instead of one) to handle the overflow of autograph requests. The show is free to the public and will take place inside the CNN Center from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (EST) on Saturday, Jan. 26, and from 12 noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27.

The National Hockey League, Upper Deck and McFarlane Toys have teamed to offer hockey fans in Atlanta the chance to meet current and former NHL stars and view the most cherished prize in team sports — the Stanley Cup — at a two-day trading card and memorabilia show this weekend at the CNN Center.  The show will be part of the 2008 NHL All-Star Weekend in Atlanta.

The 2008 NHL All-Star Trading Card and Memorabilia Show, presented by Upper Deck and McFarlane Toys, will feature memorabilia from a number of hobby stores. Fans will be able to collect exclusive Upper Deck trading cards, including Sidney Crosby, Ilya Kovalchuk, members of the Atlanta Thrashers and other All-Stars as part of their wrapper redemption program. The Upper Deck booth also will feature the opportunity to have a personal trading card created as an All-Star or take a few shots on goal through their “Lucky Shot” game.
McFarlane Toys has made 3,000 limited-edition Marian Hossa action figures available exclusively during the two-day event. Todd McFarlane, CEO of McFarlane Toys, Creator of Spawn and minority owner of the Edmonton Oilers will be on hand to sign autographs, as will current and former NHL players.
