The 2017 NHLPA Rookie Showcase was a whirlwind of activity where the NHLPA and Upper Deck bring over 25 hockey prospects to Toronto. Upper Deck shares aspects of the company’s business with these young players they may not be aware of. Everyone knows Upper Deck has the world’s greatest memorabilia and trading card offerings, but many players didn’t know the company also produces a sleek line of hockey coins called Grandeur.
Charlie McAvoy of the Boston Bruins was blown away that players are featured on actual currency. Upper Deck’s Grandeur hockey coins are legal tender in the Cook Islands.
Much like a pack of trading cards, Grandeur coins are packaged blind in a box so you don’t know which player or type of coin you might receive until you open it up. Tyson Jost of the Colorado Avalanche loved the thrill of cracking the pack opening and discovering which coin they received!
Colin White of the Ottawa Senators seemed to like the fact there are four different levels of rarity with the coins, but he really enjoyed the colorful base version he pulled.
The detail on these coins is nothing short of stunning as they highlight the player and the city they have made headlines in. Brock Boeser of the Vancouver Canucks was thoroughly impressed with their beauty.
