Canadians can rejoice on National Hockey Card Day.
Upper Deck will be featuring another promotion dedicated to some of Canada’s best hockey players. On Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, Upper Deck is giving away one free pack of cards just for visiting participating hobby shops in Canada.
The 16-card set focuses strictly on Canadian-born players and will feature athletes such as Taylor Hall, Mario Lemieux and Gordie Howe.
See the complete checklist after the jump.
This is just the first announcement of what are likely many more for what Upper Deck is planning for National Hockey Card Day. An official teased on the company’s Facebook page to expect surprises just as there were last year.
Does this mean randomly inserted autographed cards? Perhaps, but the only way to find out is by going to a participating hobby shops and ripping your free pack of cards.
The 16th card in the set will be a little harder to grab. The Jonathan Toews card commemorating the 2010 Stanley Cup champions will be available as a gift with purchase on National Hockey Card Day.
For fans in the United States who want to get their hands on these cards, they always have a way of finding themselves online.
