2018 Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day Checklist and More
A hobby as beloved as hockey card collecting deserves to be celebrated. Enter Upper Deck and 2018 National Hockey Card Day on Saturday, March 3.
With celebrations taking place in both Canada and the United States, collectors can visit their local card store or retail outlet that offers up Upper Deck products in order to get in on the action and break some complimentary packs of cards.
There are distinct sets offered for both the American and Canadian markets. The sets will have 15 cards each, but there is also a 16th card with a Memorable Moments theme offered as a gift with purchase. Both US and Canadian packs come with different cards and checklists. Themes are largely similar but tweaked to fit each country.
What else can collectors expect? A continuation of the Victory Black Rookies promotional set that began at the Fall 2017 Sportcard & Memorabilia Expo as well as autographs that are long-odds pulls. Canadian packs have five cards while their American counterparts have five more.
2018 Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day has a couple of additional inserts. NHCD 10th Anniversary Tribute, offered in Canada only, reprints some of the biggest Young Guns released in the last decade. In USA packs, there’s Inaugural Images spotlighting the Vegas Golden Knights.
Typically, the event has been held in February, but this time, it will coincide with Hockey Weekend Across America. Dealers may also experience greater turnouts if the weather is better than in the past.
Dealers interested in participating in National Hockey Card Day should check with their distributors for additional information.
