Connor McDavid Signs Exclusive Autograph Deal with Upper Deck

Connor McDavid Signs Exclusive Autograph Deal with Upper Deck

It was probably the least suspenseful kick-off of an NHL draft since Sidney Crosby went first overall in 2005. It's official -- Connor McDavid is on the Edmonton Oilers. And within minutes of being drafted, Upper Deck announced that they had signed the super prospect to an exclusive deal.

The agreement makes Upper Deck the only company where McDavid will have autograph cards. It also covers packaging and promotional opportunities.

Should McDavid crack Edmonton's roster to kick off the season, his first live NHL cards will be found in 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey where he'll, presumably, appear as one of the set's Young Guns. The set is scheduled for November.

McDavid has plenty of cards already covering his junior career as well as his time with the Canadian national team.

  1. Does someone know how much money McDavid receives and how long the contract lasts? If I’m not wrong, Gretzky also has an exclusivity with UD, right?

  2. T.C.Boutique Terms of contracts like this aren’t normally made public. Gretzky is also with UD.
