Staff were very excited to see hockey's greatest prize make a visit to headquarters!
Employees and their immediate family were able to get a photo with the Stanley Cup.
Phil hopped in some pictures, always wearing his white gloves when near the Cup!
The Cup was bigger than some of the kids posing with it!
For staff who spend so much time on NHL products, this was a real thrill!
This family was just curious to see if she would fit...
Nothing beats a Stanley Cup selfie!
And then this happened...
And for me, I'm happy to say my holiday card is all set. Such a thrill to share this with my family!
Special thanks to our friends at the Hockey Hall-of-Fame and in particular Phil Pritchard for making it such a special day for the Upper Deck team. Here are some fun facts he shared with me about the Stanley Cup:
It is 36” tall, weighs 35 pounds and contains a lifetime of memories.
70% of the names on the Cup have won it more than once.
The Cup is celebrating its 121st birthday this year.
Jean Bellieveau’s name appears on the Cup the most times (17).
This summer along the Stanley Cup visited 7 countries (USA, Canada, Sweden, Finland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Russia).
Going through customs with the Stanley Cup can be “interesting,” according to Phil Pritchard. “When you get a customs agent who is a hockey fan though, it’s a breeze!”
