Upper Deck is Looking for All-Star Dads for Father’s Day
Posted On 02 Jun 2015 / 1 Comment
Fathers are educators, providers, amateur comedians, coaches, role models and then some. Whether he stayed at home to help with homework assignments or worked lengthy work days to keep the family in order, dads are often sacrificing for the greater good of the family.
The truth is, despite how much he embarrassed you in front of your friends during your teenage years or abused corny one-liners for hours on end, one day you’re going to realize you took all those years living under his roof for granted. Because now you have to change a tire, or have to tie your own tie for that first job interview – or maybe just miss his sense of humor, his life lesson talks and all the shared inside jokes that only you two understand.
There is no shortage of attributes used to describe the invaluable contributions that dads make in our lives. Now it is time to return the favor. Thanking our dads should be habitual, but for this Father’s Day, we spell All-Star, “D-A-D.”
We are looking for compelling imagery of father's using Upper Deck cards to engage with their kids and help teach them skills like reading.
There comes a point in your life when you realize that certain dads are different. What makes these All-Star Dads stand out from the rest? In what ways do they exceed expectations and go that extra mile to create those special memories for their kids? WE want to hear from YOU.
As always, there isn’t a right or wrong answer here. Every father–and parent for that matter—is certainly special in their own right! However, there are some that deserve to be recognized as All-Stars.
