Upper Deck Throwback Thursday Create the Caption Promotion: 2014 Goodwin Champions

By

It’s Throwback Thursday so let’s go back through Upper Deck’s trading card history and come up with a fun giveaway. Upper Deck’s always popular set 2014 Goodwin Champions released yesterday and it features a variety of young stars and legendary players. The cards are all based off of original hand-painted art we had commissioned for the set and that allows us a lot of leeway to show athletes in a different light. Just take a look at these base cards for example:

2014-Goodwin-Champions-Base-Painted-Cards-Group

One of my personal favorite cards in the set is of legendary goalie Grant Fuhr playing golf. And if you didn’t already know, Grant Fuhr is actually a pretty darn good golfer who has actually been featured in an Upper Deck Golf set before.

What I love about this 2014 Goodwin Champions card of Fuhr however is how the elements he is playing in do not seem to bother him at all. So let’s put up a new card of an older player for Throwback Thursday 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 the below 6 packs of 2014 Goodwin Champions for your chance to pull one of your own!

You think golf in the snow’s impressive? Try winning 3 Stanley Cups with Paul Coffey as your “defenseman” #5thForward

17

I’m playing goalie at the pin

18

I don’t golf often, but when I do, I prefer to do so on a nice clean sheet of ice.

19

Nobody can seem to find the 5 hole on Grant’s course

20

It’s just a little bit of snow….here, use my snow wedge.

21

“Anyone seen Tony Romo? I know he’s usually off work already this time of year since its the postseason and all. Looking to get a round of golf in with him.”

22

Hey ladies, wanna come to the clubhouse?

Happy Gilmore strikes again…..

42

After scoring all those goals, Wayne and Mark told me to take the rest of the day off.

43

“Just signed with Toronto, better bring my clubs”

44

After trekking threw the Canadian terrain it’s always nice to unwind with a peaceful game of golf. Bring your stick for the tiebreaker.

45

Anyone seen my ball, it’s a white Titleist?

46

Please Mr. Photographer… I asked for a goalie stick and a snow showel, not golf clubs!

47

“Man these pants they are making me wear are really giving me a wedgie!”

48

Why Yes I do make everything look this good and yes I should be in the old spice commercial. You are correct old chap.

49

Four! Much easier than a double pad stack!

50

I gotta stop playing with the white golf balls in the snow…

51

I’m so awesome I chop down trees to make my own goalie sticks. Top that Chuck Norris.

In the snow, its nothing but hole in ones….its a Canadian thing.

That’s why Grant Fuhr only uses Molson golf clubs. The club that drives like a hockey stick.

Snow golf is for the penguins, not the blues!
