A future NHL star’s autographed hockey cards will only be found in one place in future years thanks to a new deal announced on Friday.
It’s Nico Hischier and he’ll only be signing for Leaf Trading Cards.
“Working with Nico, along with Allain and Jordan from RSG Hockey, has been an exciting and rewarding process,” said Leaf CEO Brian Gray. “To see an agency thinking outside the box and aggressively marketing their athletes is refreshing in a traditional sport like hockey. Nico is now part of that movement in the hockey world.”
Leaf Trading Cards will be among the card companies in attendance at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention set for Aug. 3-7 in Atlantic City, N.J., and it revealed its plans for the show on Wednesday.
It will be a four-pronged effort that includes a case-break redemption program, a box-break redemption program, promo cards and an aggressive buying of cards for future buyback products.
Update (Nov. 10): Leaf Trading Cards’ Brian Gray said he recently completed a signing with Chase and his first autograph cards will be found in packs of 2016 Leaf Pop Century.
He’s a comedy icon with memorable roles as Clark Griswold in the National Lampoon Vacation films, Ty Webb in Caddyshack, Irwin Fletcher in Fletch, Dusty Bottoms in Three Amigos and so much more.
But there’s one place you haven’t seen Chevy Chase and that’s on a certified (non-cut) autograph card.
