National Hockey Card Day is Saturday

This Saturday (tomorrow!) is National Hockey Card Day. And as all of you know by now, this year it will be held in both Canada and the U.S.

Participating stores will be giving away 5-card packs of Upper Deck Hockey cards containing an exclusive “National Hockey Card Day” set. Each country will get its own distinct set:

USA: List of participating American retailers

Canada: List of participating Canadian retailers

While the giveaway packs are free, a special 16th card (Sidney Crosby in Canada; Tim Thomas in America) will only be available if you make a purchase.

Canadian collectors who visit London Drugs or Toys R Us will get an oversized “blow up” card when they purchase an Upper Deck product.

I’m excited, and am going to visit a few stores and try to build a few sets to trade to my fellow collectors north of the border.

  1. FYI – it looks like Tim doesn't have any packs, but Elite sports on Montrose has them. At least that's what they're saying via email.
