Today is National Hockey Card Day. If you are in Canada, you can get free packs of exclusive trading cards.
You can get a pack of cards at large retailers like Jean Coutu, PharmaPlus and Rexall.
Hobby shops will be carrying the free packs too. Here is a list of participating card and hobby shops.
There are 16 different cards in the set. The first 15 will come in the free packs (usually 5 per pack). The 16th card, which is of Jonathan Toews (above) is only available if you make a purchase at one of the participating card/hobby stores.
So, what are you waiting for? Go get some free cards. And if anyone gets an extra complete set for trade (including the Toews card and a wrapper), I will gladly trade you for it.

Hey Sal: Will be sending you the 15 card set, the Toews and an empty wrapper–just picked mine and yours up
Thanks, Al. I appreciate it 🙂
I unfortunately think some of those places are fictitious and they scammed UD. I went to two of the locations on the list in my area and both were either empty or residential. I unfortunately only managed to get 2 packs from the one legit place in my area!
Damn You Sal !
Do you have to remind me every winter that I miss out on this promotion.
I love this idea and I think it's great for the hobby. I remember when this started with FREE COMIC BOOK DAY and it helped that hobby back on its feet.
I only wish we could do this world wide for soccer cards !
Thanks for sharing the samples.
Chuck, I did mention this about a month back…
Sorry you missed it again this year.
Dave, next year you could tell Upper Deck that your house is a hobby shop. And then they'll send you a whole bunch of those packs that you can redistribute to us bloggers south of the border.
PS–I did not forget your trade proposal. Just been swamped with other stuff distracting me from my hobbies 🙁
