Recently Upper Deck shared plans for the company’s remaining 2012-13 NHL trading card sets, but many collectors still had questions with regard to rookie redemption cards that came in two of the company’s early season products; 2012-13 NHL Artifacts and 2012-13 NHL Upper Deck Series One. We are excited to share we will be able to produce and begin delivering these cards to collectors in July, 2013.
With that production schedule, Upper Deck is afforded a nice opportunity to make sure collectors get a great chance to get the best rookies possible as we will be able to assess how each of these players performed during their rookie season and include any late season call-ups into the mix (including rookies who potentially skate for the first time in the playoffs). We will be announcing specific players for the rookie redemption cards in 2012-13 NHL Artifacts and 2012-13 NHL Upper Deck Series One in coming months. Collectors familiar with our brands know that Upper Deck works hard to deliver fans the best players possible for these cards as we continue to bring them closer to the game they love.
