Much like the 2020-21 NHL season, it’s been shuffled around thanks to the lingering impact of the pandemic, but the 2021 edition of National Hockey Card Day is set for this Saturday, July 24 at participating hobby shops in the U.S. and Canada.
The event normally takes place in the winter and had originally been moved back to a spring date before a post-season date was recently finalized. This is the 12th year for the program.
The packs are once again separated into U.S. and Canadian versions but each set includes 16 cards. There are also Victory-branded rookies and mascot cards.
The U.S. set includes players who were born in the states or play on a U.S.-based team, while the packs sold in Canada will contain cards of players who were born there or play for a Canadian NHL franchise. All cards from both sets can be seen below.
Some National Hockey Card Day packs will contain autographed cards that have been randomly inserted.
Additional Rookie Moments cards can be acquired by spending $10 or more on Upper Deck products at participating shops (see the lists below).
