GTS Distribution Announces Exclusive Upper Deck Hockey Set
GTS Distribution is partnering with Upper Deck to create an exclusive set of hockey cards.
The 30-card set includes rookies, veterans and retired stars. In total, half of the set is first-year players. Cards come in three-card packs.
Dealers will get packs based on their orders with the distributor as well as Universal Distribution. For every box of 2012-13 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey and 2012-13 Upper Deck Black Diamond Hockey dealers order, they will get one pack of the GTS-exclusive set. Every box of 2012-13 SP Game Used Hockey is good for two packs.
Besides the regular cards, the set also has two parallels. Gold Foil cards fall 1:4 packs. All players except Jakob Silfverberg, Jason Zucker and Tyler Cuma also have an autograph. Signed cards are inserted 1:36 packs.
Dealers who have already placed their orders with GTS or Universal Distribution already qualify for packs. According to GTS, packs will start shipping in mid-November.
This set is not available directly to collectors. It is intended as an incentive for dealers to share with their customers.
