Hockey Card Halloween Costumes & More from the Holiday
Posted On 03 Nov 2011 / 1 Comment
The Upper Deck Volunteer Alliance members receive a variety of missions throughout the year that keep them busy making the hobby better and creating more awareness for trading cards. One of their recent assignments was to create an Upper Deck Halloween costume and we had a couple clever new costume concepts we wanted to share. Check them out:
These collectors wore their trading cards like masks making small eye holes to see out of in the middle.
Here's another look at one of these creative masks.
This collector made their costume as a billboard type that went over their shoulders to become an Upper Deck Sidney Crosby card.
Here's the back of the Crosby billboard card costume.
The members who dressed up like trading cards always share an interesting experience where they end up finding out who the “closet collectors” are in their community. By sharing their love for the hobby, they actually find other collectors they didn’t know about before which is really cool. Another member shared they were actually able to encourage some fans who used to collect to give it a try again when they shared there were now autograph cards that could be found in packs.
We also encouraged them to give out trading cards instead of candy for the holiday. One member went so far as to package a mini candy treat with trading cards which apparently was a big hit with kids in his neighborhood. Here’s what those packages looked like.
At Halloween, encourage people you know to say, "Trick or Trade!"
So next Halloween make sure to share your love for the hobby with others by passing out trading cards and maybe incorporating them into your costume.
