Teemu Selanne joins Upper Deck Authenticated roster
By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Hockey Editor
Retired NHL legend Teemu Selanne is one of the greatest internationally-trained performers the game of hockey has ever seen and his autograph has consistently been in demand since he broke into the league with the Winnipeg Jets back in 1992-93.
That season was a magical one as he established a freshman standard with 76 goals and when he scored his 54th of the year to shatter the mark set by Mike Bossy back in 1977-78, he picked up his stick like a rifle in order to celebrate the milestone. It was a great moment in hockey history and it, along with several of Selanne’s accomplishments, are being celebrated via an autograph memorabilia deal with Upper Deck Authenticated.
Included among the great moments Upper Deck Authenticated is looking to celebrate with the Teemu Selanne Collection are his 500th career goal and his 2006-07 Stanley Cup victory with the Anaheim Ducks. In addition to signed photos, fans can also have an opportunity to purchase photo collages and shadow box pieces.
The Teemu Selanne Collection can be viewed online at the Upper Deck store.
