On Hockey Day, Upper Deck is pulling out all the stops to make Saturday, February 9, 2013 a day to remember for every puck fan in Canada. Upper Deck, in association with the company’s hobby and retail partners, along with the NHL, NHLPA and Team Canada are bringing FREE hockey trading cards to fans throughout Canada while supplies last.
Collectors young and old absolutely love National Hockey Card Day where they can score FREE Upper Deck hockey cards throughout Canada!
The only way fans can score this special 16th card of Mario Lemieux and Wayne Gretzky from the 1987 Canada Cup is with a purchase at a participating hobby shop while supplies last.
Fans in Canada can also visit Toys “R” Us and London Drugs locations to receive one of five National Hockey Card Day blow-up cards of Sidney Crosby, Jarome Iginla, Bobby Orr, Joe Sakic and Jaden Schwartz for absolutely FREE!
Blow-up cards from top stars like Sidney Crosby are available at participating Toys "R" Us and London Drugs locations.
Upper Deck will also be sampling National Hockey Card Day packs at three other locations where hockey fans will likely be visiting beginning this Saturday. As an official sponsor of the Hockey Hall-of-Fame in Toronto, Ontario, Upper Deck will be giving away National Hockey Card Day packs to visitors with their paid admission over the weekend while supplies last.
Upper Deck sponsors the Collector's Corner at the Hockey Hall-of-Fame and this weekend you can score free National Hockey Card Day packs just for visiting this hallowed hall!
Upper Deck has also partnered with Bossa Productions to hand out FREE National Hockey Card Day packs at the Richmond Celebrates Hockey Day event in Western, Canada. The event is free to the public and should be a great time with an Upper Deck Trading Zone, special autograph signings with former NHL stars like Guy Lafleur, a sports market place, games, displays, giveaways, draws, and other fun contests. This is your chance to experience a great day of everything hockey under one roof, don’t miss it!

Lastly, Upper Deck will also be sampling National Hockey Card Day packs to attendees at the Winnipeg Jets home game on Tuesday, February 12 against the Philadelphia Flyers. Packs will be available to the first fans in attendance while supplies last so don’t show up late! Since the Jets have one of the most passionate hockey fan bases in Canada, we felt it was important to sample these packs with them!
We hope hockey fans get out and enjoy Upper Deck’s National Hockey Card Day! Special thanks to all our partners (especially the hobby shops) who help make this event so special every year for hockey fans. We look forward to seeing a lot of smiles as the event takes place throughout Canada weekend!
