Video cards make a comeback in 2011-12 UD The Cup


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Hockey Editor

Remember video cards that were all the rage last year?

Companies put video cards of athletes in boxes of some of the top players in the league. Well, they’re back.

Upper Deck has included Rookie Evolution Video Card Redemptions in 2011-12 The Cup – a high-end hockey product on UD’s calendar, which came out this week.

There’s no telling who you would get considering these are just redemption cards, but guys could include Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Gabriel Landeskog.

Do people want these cards?

You betcha.

One of the first of these redemptions to land on eBay sold for $599. And, currently, there are just three of these eBay.

    yea i want a card that after the battery runs out shows a blank screen, does no one see the flaw in this, theres more to a card than limited numbering

    it can be powered back up via usb.. big deal.. don’t use a remote control or a cellphone if you don’t know how to do that..

    i think it would be nice to get one, i got the football ones and this would be a nice addition but at that price i guess i won’t be getting one unless someone wants to just give me it. (like that will happen).

    Wait so what is this exactly??

    What would be cool, is a card where say you get to have a 5 or 10 minute conversation with the player you pull and then that gets put into a video or something like that. it has to be something worth getting.
