By

It’s Throwback Thursday so let’s go back through Upper Deck’s trading card history and come up with a fun giveaway. This upcoming weekend, the Chicago Blackhawks will face off against the Pittsburg Penguins in the 2014 NHL Stadium Series in Chicago. In the 60’s Stan Mikita and Bobby Hull of the Blackhawks were a pair of Hockey Heroes for the Chicago Blackhawks. This dynamic duo was the driving force behind the Blackhawks’ most powerful offense of the decade. Let’s see what type of heat Chicago brings this weekend! So let’s put up a throwback card of this memorable pair and see if our fans can come up with some great captions for the card! Please share your comical caption to this card for your opportunity to score one (1) 5-card Upper Deck 25th Anniversary Promo card set (players and images will be announced tomorrow).
