Hockey fans attending the 2012 Sportscard & Memorabilia Show in Toronto will be happy to learn Upper Deck’s Priority Signing wrapper redemption program is back.
To take part, Collectors have to purchase a hockey hobby box of 2012-13 O-Pee-Chee, 2012-13 Artifacts or 2012-13 Upper Deck Series 1 from a Certified Diamond Dealer at the show. They will receive a voucher that can be redeemed (along with the wrappers from the box) at specific times at the Upper Deck booth.
In return, collectors will get one random NHL Priority Signings autograph card.
Collectors can get players such as Jean Beliveau, Bobby Orr, Alexander Ovechkin, Taylor Hall and Wayne Gretzky.
Also, look for rare variations of some of the top players including Mario Lemieux and Sidney Crosby.
However, all cards are numbered to 75 or less.
Here for the wrapper redemption:
Friday: 5-7 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m.–Noon
Sunday: 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Case breakers get an extra incentive. Bring a voucher along with a hockey case of 2011-12 SP Authentic, 2011-12 Ultimate, 2011-12 SP Game Used or 2011-12 SPx, and get two Priority Signings autographs and one instant redemption, good for an exclusive Priority Signings single or dual autograph or a signed memorabilia item from a top NHL draft pick.
With the case breaker promotion, the single cards are limited to five or fewer and the dual signed cards are limited to 10 or fewer. There are also 1-of-1s from players such as Lemieux, Gretzky and Crosby.
Case breakers can redeem their wrappers at any time.
