Upper Deck Celebrates Bruins Title With Box Set

The Boston Bruins are champions of the hockey world once again. For the first time in 39 years, the Bruins are hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup in celebration of their exciting, come-from-behind, best-of-seven-games series victory over the Vancouver Canucks.

Upper Deck is helping Bruins fans celebrate, not that they need much help.

“This was one of the most exciting postseasons in recent memory, and Boston’s victory last night capped off a tremendous campaign by the Bruins,” said Josh Zusman, Upper Deck’s hockey brand manager. “To commemorate Boston’s exciting win, we’ve put together this stunning 31-card collection that hockey fans, especially Bruins fans, will simply go crazy for.”

Leading the way is an awesome 3-1/2-by-8-inch commemorative card showcasing the Bruins celebrating their Stanley Cup championship. The card back features Conn Smythe winner Tim Thomas hoisting the Cup, along with a game-by-game scoring recap.

The 31-card set is comprised of 25 regular player cards spotlighting Boston’s top players from this season including Patrice Bergeron, Nathan Horton, David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Mark Recchi, Tyler Seguin, Johnny Boychuk, goaltender extraordinaire Tim Thomas and team captain, Zdeno Chara; five “Season Highlights” cards spotlighting five memorable moments from the 2010-11 NHL campaign; and the commemorative card.

The five “Season Highlights” cards consist of: 1.) The Bruins rally from two games down to beat Montreal in the opening round of the playoffs; 2.) Avenging last season’s playoff collapse against Philadelphia with a sweep of the Flyers; 3.) Chara’s first career hat trick (1/17/11) against Carolina; 4.) Thomas leads the league in GAA (Goals Against Average) and saves percentage; and 5.) Seguin’s four-point effort in Game 2 of the Conference Finals against Tampa Bay ties the series at 1-1.

The box set is available for preordering at www.upperdeckstore.com for just $19.99.
