Upper Deck is the exclusive provider of Team Canada content for trading cards and the company has plans to use that in a new way with 2010-11 NHL SP Authentic. There are two autograph cards in set that are definitely different and will have collectors talking, especially those who are lucky enough to pull them.
The first card features Sidney Crosby both with the Pittsburgh Penguins and with Team Canada. What makes this card so unique is that he will sign the card on the Pittsburgh Penguins side and the Team Canada signed creating a very unique dual autograph card.
The next card that is sure to get people talking features Upper Deck’s three exclusive spokesmen; Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky. Upper Deck is the only company that can produce trading cards of these three legends of hockey. In the 2010-11 NHL SP Authentic Sign of the Times Sixes set the three icons will autograph one side featuring them with their respective NHL teams and then autograph the other side featuring them as a member of Team Canada. There will only be six of these cards inserted into the product.
