The World Cup of Hockey is right around the corner and that can only mean one thing…a new set of hockey cards!
On Monday, Upper Deck announced that they’re coming out with a new 40-card World Cup set. The five-card packs won’t be for sale though. Instead, they’ll be given out to those who buy 25$ worth of Upper Deck products at their local card store.
Each of the eight teams in the tournament (Canada, USA, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Team World and Team North America) will have five players appear in the set. Some of the players are: Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Tomas Plekanec, Evgeni Malkin, Teuvo Teravainen, Henrik Sedin, Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid.
Here’s a look at some of the cards (all photos are from upperdeckblog.com):
There’ll even be some limited edition autographed cards and printing plate cards:
