2009 Hawaii Trade Conference Attendee Doorprize Showcase
Each year the trading card industry meets together to discuss the business side of the hobby at the Hawaii Trade Conference. This annual meeting provides the ideal forum for manufacturers, professional sports leagues and retailers to discuss goals and strategies to improve the overall state of the industry.
One of the most popular traditions of the conference is for each of the major sports card manufacturers to create special goodie bags of cards to distribute the conference's many attendees. Panini and Topps each announced their respective gift plans for this year's conference in the weeks leading up to it, but Upper Deck remained tight lipped on the subject. Last night Upper Deck surprised attendees by doling out an incredible array of multi autographed cards. Among the cards handed out to attendees were Kevin Durant, Matt Ryan, Evan Longoria, and Patrick Kane Quad Autographed Cards Serial Numbered #/3 and a #1/1 Quad Autograph featuring the eye popping combination of Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Cal Ripken Jr and Peyton Manning.
Here are some of the cards that were distributed by Upper Deck at the conference:
