Small Business Saturday takes place this year on November 25. It’s meant to encourage shoppers to bypass their local big box stores and support local shops — like your local card store. The 2017 Upper Deck Winter promo set adds a little extra incentive for card collectors.
The checklist isn’t a huge one, but it does have many big-name hobby stars like Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, LeBron James, Ben Simmons and Serena Williams. Current NHL stars include Connor McDavid, Patrik Laine and Canucks rookie Brock Boeser.
All ten cards come with Winter Frost parallels. These are numbered to just 25 copies each.
Also randomly inserted in 2017 Upper Deck Winter packs are redemptions good for $250 gift certificates to Upper Deck’s online store. Just 18 redemptions are available.
2017 Upper Deck Winter cards are available only at authorized hobby shops in the company’s network. Collectors receive packs as a gift for making a qualifying purchase.
