A series of 2018-19 Upper Deck Hockey arena giveaways are coming to several NHL cities in the weeks ahead. Given to fans simply for attending games, each team set highlights top players and fan favorites from around the league.

The Anaheim Ducks kick things off on November 23 with a six-card checklist that includes Josh Gibson, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and more. The Anaheim set has an added focus as it celebrates the team’s 25th anniversary. The photos showcase a variety of jerseys used by the franchise over the years.

For the Washington Capitals set, there’s a Stanley Cup theme among all of the photos. The Penguins take it back to their 2009 Stanley Cup Championship. While key players like Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are still on the team, several others have moved on.

Team sets vary in size from six to nine cards. All use the 2018-19 Upper Deck Hockey design, giving them a bit of familiarity for card collectors. Production numbers vary from team to team. For example, the Bruins set is limited to 10,000 fans while everyone in attendance at the November 23 Ducks game get one. Columbus is limiting their giveaway to kids aged 12 and under.

Not all teams are using traditional arena giveaways to distribute their cards. The Edmonton Oilers cards are being used to raised spirits in local hospitals. The St. Louis Blues set is being handed out at youth camps and school visits.
