It has been quite some time since Upper Deck ventured into the hockey memorabilia world, and Upper Deck Authenticated is jumping in with full force. This Saturday, December 12th, Upper Deck, in conjunction with popular memorabilia manufacturer, Frameworth, will be conducting a signing with four major NHL stars in Chicago, Illinois. Representing the local Blackhawks, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith will be joined with Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steven Stamkos to collect signatures on some unique pieces.
“UDA is excited to carry our strong tradition of quality, innovation and authenticity into the sport of hockey”, says Steve Sloan, Upper Deck Authenticated Product Manager. “We have a dedicated plan to introduce a full range of autographed hockey memorabilia in 2010 and are hopeful that fans and collectors begin to seek out Upper Deck Authenticated as a source for their hockey collectibles.”
To document this event, we will be posting pictures and updates on our hockey Twitter page so collectors can see the athletes signing the pieces before they are available for purchase.
