Upper Deck is encouraging collectors to hit their hobby shops on Small Business Saturday and as part of that it has created a bonus card set available to those who make a visit.
It’s the 2016 Upper Deck Winter promotion and it includes 10 top names in the game.
The flagship product for NHL fans arrives in just 11 days but the wait to find out who made the cut in 2016-17 Upper Deck Series 1 is over.
It ended with the arrival of the final checklist on Monday afternoon.
When 2015-16 Upper Deck Portfolio arrives in hobby shops on Aug. 17, collectors will find some surprises when they dig in with cards of stars from the past, present and future in play.
Yep, that means there are cards for rookies from the 2016-17 rookie class — a crop led by Toronto’s late-season call-up William Nylander — found inside along with an impressive array of memorabilia, ink and more in this otherwise redemption-free product.
What: 2015-16 Upper Deck AHL hockey cards
