The 2018 NHL® All-Star Weekend will be a blast for fans in attendance and spectators around the world. Upper Deck is planning to make it a memorable weekend for fans in attendance as the company prepares for a variety of activities to take place around All-Star Fan Fair from January 26-28.
The National Hockey League is transforming the AMALIE Arena’s Silver Parking Lot and Cotanchobee Park into three days of FREE interactive hockey fun that you won’t want to miss. Fan Fair will be open on Friday from 5:00p.m.-10:00p.m., Saturday from 12:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m., and Sunday from 12:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.
Upper Deck will be running a variety of interactive programs for fans throughout the weekend that you won’t want to miss. If you purchase 2017-18 Upper Deck NHL® packs or boxes from dealers in attendance, you can participate in a variety of fun programs.
Puck-O – Drop the puck and score some awesome prizing with Upper Deck’s fun game for fans. We’ve seen some kids flip when they score an Upper Deck jersey card or other cool items.
Up for grabs at Puck-O will also be this very slick Connor McDavid promotional poster.
Personalized Trading Cards – Upper Deck will have professional photographers on site and a variety of jerseys, gloves and sticks for fans to use to strike a pose and get their very own Upper Deck trading cards made. We will print them right on site, and fans are always all smiles when they score this innovative and very memorable collectible. Many snap photos to share online with family and friends!
There will be a variety of highly-sought after, authentic signed NHL® collectibles on display from Upper Deck Authenticated. Check out the latest in authentic signed collectibles at UpperDeckStore.com!
