2012 Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day Checklist and Information

Upper Deck's National Hockey Card Day has been a popular and successful Canadian hockey card promotion for many years now. However 2012 National Hockey Card Day marked the introduction of the promotion to the United States contest. Upper Deck distributed cards for the event, which took place, via hobby shops as well as through limited online channels.

Canadian collectors will find a similar 15-card set. The subsets are Rookies, Pride of Canada and Heroes. A Sidney Crosby Team Canada card will be offered as a gift to those making purchases. Canadian retailers London Drugs and Toys 'R Us will also be in on the action, offering over-sized cards.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

  1. Are the Willie O’Ree, Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas cards only available in the US or will they be available in Canada as well?

  2. The Canadian and US versions are completely different. I do suspect that most will be heavily traded across borders so collectors on both sides can complete master sets. The purchase incentive cards will likely be the trickiest to come by, but even then there should be lots.
