Introducing @TimHortons Collector Series NHL Hockey Trading Cards! #Giveaway
08 Oct 2015
Need ‘em, Got ‘em, Trade ‘em.
I remember when I was a kid, going to school, meeting up with my buddies, and talking about which hockey cards we recently acquired.
Then we would proceed to the window beside the doorway to the school, line up a few cards along the window near the floor, and take turns flicking cards. Whomever knocked over cards would keep those cards.
I wasn’t too bad at this game, and had quite a few good cards. But I remember having, and subsequently losing, some now very valuable rookie cards.
Now I have chance to relive those memories.
Tim Hortons Collector’s Series NHL Upper Deck trading cards are here!
“Tim Hortons has such a strong association with hockey, making it the ideal brand to work with on this innovative platform for card collecting and trading,” says Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. “With the calibre of this season’s rookie talent, there has been a surge in interest for hockey cards, and the online trading component of this program will give fans across Canada easy access to them.”
Developed in partnership with the NHL, the NHLPA and their exclusive licensed trading card partner, Upper Deck, the Tim Hortons Collector’s Series NHL Upper Deck Trading cards are sure to be a hit with any hockey fan!
Available in three-card packs for $1 plus tax with purchase of a beverage ($1.99 plus tax without), while supplies last.
