Upper Deck is again asking collectors to take on the role of photo editor by helping select final images for new Young Guns Rookie cards that will be released in 2015-16 Upper Deck Series Two Hockey.
This year’s rookie class is one of the driving forces behind the huge increase in demand for 2015-16 hockey cards. Many stores have already sold out of Upper Deck Series One Hockey and have seen a boost in pre-orders for Series Two, as well as several other upcoming trading card releases.
The company recently asked fans to select the photo for rookie phenom Connor McDavid’s Young Guns card.
Fans can vote for their favorite ‘Young Guns’ rookie card photos of Jack Eichel (Buffalo Sabres), Jake Virtanen (Vancouver Canucks) and Noah Hanifin (Carolina Hurricanes). In addition, images for ‘UD Canvas’ rookie cards of McDavid and Andreas Athanasiou will be decided on by fans, as will the ‘Team Canada Canvas’ card for Max Domi.
Images and voting details can be found at http://UpperDeckStore.com/YoungGuns. Votes can be cast anytime between now and midnight on Monday, November 30.
“Allowing fans to be a part of the creative process brings a new element to the cards they already love” said Chris Carlin, Sr. Marketing & Social Media Manager at Upper Deck. “These cards are going to be treasured for years to come, so it only makes sense to give collectors a chance to help create them. We are also encouraging fans to use the hashtag #YoungGuns to share their favorite images and comments.”
2015-16 Upper Deck Series Two Hockey will be out in February 2016.
