At Upper Deck, we love surprising our fans. Unannounced “Easter Egg” surprise content in products has been something we’ve been leading the category on for years. In particular we love these types of surprises on new brands. One we have created is too cool not to share details on however. Recently we shared an image gallery of the new NHL® Chronology Volume 1, but something we haven’t shared is that there will be five exchange cards for premium memorabilia items.
The second is for a rather unique item, check out details!
1928 Montreal Maroons Team Ribbon – The National Hockey League was just entering its second decade as the premier league in the world when this extremely rare silk ribbon featuring eleven members of the 1928-29 Montreal Maroons went into circulation. The franchise only existed from 1924-38, but its NHL lifespan was as successful as it was brief. During its 14-season run, the Maroons reached the playoffs 11 times, reaching the semifinals an impressive eight times and winning two Stanley Cups!
Despite finishing fifth with a 15-20-9 record, the 1928-29 Maroons squad boasted six future Hall-of-Famers! The extremely rare silk ribbon shows eleven members of the 1928 team in individual oval portraits It measures 7”x2.”
What makes this so unique is that this incredible collector’s item will be placed into an oversized “Museum Collection” relic card making it the largest memorabilia card that we are aware of.
