Oh Canada! Finally an Upper Deck Set Dedicated Completely to Team Canada Hockey!
Posted On 30 Apr 2013 / 6 Comments
Earlier today Upper Deck shared with the company’s Authorized Distributor network a special new set of trading cards would be released exclusively for Team Canada Hockey. The 2013 Upper Deck Team Canada Hockey set will be right in line with the base Upper Deck brand in terms of price and configuration. There will be five cards per pack, 24 packs per box and 12 boxes per case. The cards will all feature the same great photography as collectors have come to expect from the flagship Upper Deck brand, but the product will have richer content with two autographs in every box on average and four boxes per case will have a third autograph card!
The base card set features 260 cards including 100 short prints. Approximately 200 former Team Canada players will have autograph cards in the set. Other fun aspects to the products are two trade cards good for two future star 2013 Draft Picks including rare signed versions. Additionally, a “Clear Cut Program of Excellence” insert numbered to 99 copies will utilize acetate technology to deliver a very exciting card fans of Team Canada will want to collect! Another technology insert collectors will love is the 60 card SE foil board set that will also have a rare gold die-cut parallel version.
