Just when you thought every piece of game-used jerseys and equipment has been used on a trading card…
Upper Deck will unveil a new insert set with its 2008-09 NHL SP Game Used product.
Famous Fight Straps is designed to pay homage to the physical nature of hockey.
Hockey fans know the small strap at the back of jerseys is designed to keep the jersey from coming off when players drop the gloves, square off and an opponent begins pulling on the jersey.
"The cards will definitely be rare as the strap is so small, we can only produce a small amount of them," said Hobby Marketing Manager Chris Carlin. "Single cards will be numbered to just three copies and the combo versions will be one-of-one cards. Since these cards will be more premium, they will be produced on a thicker card stock, similar to a patch card."
The SP Game Used issue is a high-end hockey product that will include 6 packs per box with 3 cards per pack. Each pack contains one game-used memorabilia card with one autograph card and one game-used memorabilia card numbered to 100 or less per box on average.
