NHL Fans: Upper Deck Announces Plans for Toronto Expo

Upper Deck and hobby retailers in the U.S. and Canada have enjoyed a successful season of hockey card sales and now it’s time to give something back to those collectors at the upcoming NHL Spring Expo in Toronto (May 1-3).

The NHL Spring Expo extravaganza at the Toronto International Centre attracts thousands of rabid hockey collectors from all across North America, as well as Europe and Asia. And Upper Deck is making sure to thank collectors for another great year of sales.

The most exciting portion of Upper Deck’s involvement this year is the semi-annual wrapper redemption program where collectors who open one box of either 2008-09 Ice, 2008-09 SPx or 2008-09 SP Game-Used Hockey at the Upper Deck booth will receive a random NHL “Priority Signings” autograph card. Upper Deck has pulled out some of the biggest names in hockey to help make this one of the most exciting sets in show history.

Each card is sequentially numbered and limited to varied amounts. This promotion is limited to one card per person per day and will only be available while supplies last.

Redemption hours at the Upper Deck booth will be on Friday, May 1, from 5-7 p.m.; Saturday, May 2, from 1-3 p.m.; and on Sunday, May 3, from 11-1 p.m. A full checklist of the cards in this year’s set is listed below:
