2022 Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day Scheduled for February 26


2022 Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day will have collectors and fans of the sport heading to hobby shops across North America on Saturday, February 26. It’s back to its normal winter slot after the pandemic pushed the 2021 edition of the promotion all the way back to July.

As with recent years, collectors north and south of the 49th parallel have similar promotions but with separate cards and checklists.

For the American version, players are either from the United States or place for a U.S.-based team. In Canada, it’s the same only with players from Canadian teams or who were born there.

2022 Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day packs are intended to be given out for free by participating shops. Many take further steps by building larger events and promotions around the day.

In addition to the main set, there’s an exclusive Rookie Moments card that isn’t in packs. Rather, collectors get one by making a modest qualifying purchase of $10 on Upper Deck hockey products at the store.

This marks the 13th year for National Hockey Card Day.
