Fan who participated in Upper Deck’s most recent expired redemption raffle at the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention are in store for great news; everyone who submitted a card will receive a prize card! Due to a slight logistical snafu, we have added more prize cards to this pool and will honor every card received with a random prize card.
We believe a portion of the cards received in at the show were unintentionally placed with some packages being shipped back to headquarters. We did continue to receive cards in throughout the show and had a spreadsheet of everyone who sent in cards prior to the event. Since some cards were not on hand however, we were unable to conduct a full raffle as scheduled. We made the decision to assist customers who had dropped off expired redemptions at the show with a random selection of cards (1 prize card for every expired redemption submitted) and we will award a prize card to every customer who submitted expired redemption cards for this draw even though there were more than 100 in the pool.
If you sent in expired redemptions for this promotion, please reach out to our Customer Care team at (800)873-7332 or via email at GeneralQuestions@upperdeck.com to confirm what you sent in and to confirm your email address so we can let you know what you won when we conduct the remainder of the draw. Again, we are adding prize cards to this draw (including premium cards) and every card submitted will be a winner.
We apologize for any inconvenience and we look forward to getting you your prize card(s) soon!
Upper Deck has been the collector’s choice for the last 25 years for several reasons like the quality of the product, the value found within packs and because the company demonstrated responsible printing and distribution. There is another reason why Upper Deck has been successful however, and that is because of the efforts of hobby shops. To celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary, Upper Deck has looked at a variety of fun ways to show dealers how much we appreciate their efforts. Today at the National Sports Collectors Convention, we found another way to do so.
Upper Deck worked to thank Certified Diamond Dealers who chose to set up at the National Sports Collectors Convention this week with their very own Upper Deck trading card. As we delivered them today, their smiles told the story of how much they appreciated the gift.
Dealers were very creative with their imagery and they will certainly be a unique type of business card for them to use with customers. And who knows, maybe you’ll even see some autograph versions selling on eBay.
Upper Deck has also been working to support dealers with special Random Acts of Kindness Mail Days for their best customers. More surprises are yet to come. Thank you to all the dealers who keep Upper Deck as the collector’s choice!
On top of the incredible promotions Upper Deck has already announced for the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention, the company has several new announcements that fans in attendance are going to love. If you are in the Northern Ohio area this week, make sure to visit Upper Deck at booth #1043 all weekend long for an amazing lineup of events including exciting promotions and giveaways.
Upper Deck will be conducting a FREE autograph signing session with Philadelphia Flyers goalie and former Columbus Blue Jacket; Steve Mason.

No other items will be signed and autographs are limited to one per person. Fans who bring five packs of 2013-14 NHL® Upper Deck products can earn front of line privileges, but note, those packs will not be good for the wrapper redemption program.

Attendees can take pictures with the Calder Memorial Trophy, the Prince of Wales Trophy, the Hart Memorial Trophy, the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl and the Vezina Trophy at the Upper Deck Booth. As the exclusive NHL® cards and the Hockey Hall-of-Fame, it was important for Upper Deck to bring hockey to the National Sports Collectors Convention like never before.

So for those of you that couldn’t make it out to the Con this year, here is just a small recap of what happened at the Upper Deck booth!
We can’t wait to see what next year has in store for us! If you were able to stop make it out this year, leave us a comment and let us know what you loved most about Comic Con!
Upper Deck has taken a leadership position in helping youngsters battling brain cancer by doing a lot of little things like creating a card for Jack Hoffman or recognizing Jaclyn Murphy. Most recently we hosted an autograph session for Jack Miller. There is a strength to these children that is much bigger than there little bodies could possibly house. And by telling their stories, they serve as an inspiration to others.
Danny Nickerson is a five-year-old about to celebrate his sixth birthday who suffers from brain cancer. When we heard that all he wanted to receive for his birthday was cards, we sprung into action. Initially we were excited to hear he wanted cards, but he is not really after trading cards (although you better believe we are sending him some), he just wants letters.
His mom shared with various media that he gets very excited when he gets mail with his name on it now that he can recognize his name. It’s a little thing. Something simple anyone could do. Even you. So we sent Danny a birthday package today as part of Upper Deck’s Random Acts of Kindness program and we want to encourage our fans to send Danny letters as well. If you want to include cards, perhaps try to make them from his local teams. Thanks to everyone for getting behind this great cause for this brave little boy!
