CARLSBAD, Ca. (October 10, 2016) – Upper Deck, the leader in authentic sports memorabilia and collectibles, today announced a new agreement with Connor McDavid that gives the company rights to act as the exclusive provider of authentic signed memorabilia and collectibles for the top-ranked NHL® player. Upper Deck has had exclusive trading card rights with McDavid since the 2015 NHL Draft™, where he was selected as the No. 1 overall pick by the Edmonton Oilers.
“We were overwhelmed by the response to Connor’s Young Guns Rookie Card, and the overall demand for Connor McDavid NHL cards from fans everywhere,” said Jason Masherah, president of Upper Deck. “It is our hope that the new collection of authentic signed collectibles will be enjoyed and cherished by his fans for many years to come.”
McDavid collectors will need to be quick to acquire one of the limited-edition items releasing today as part of the first wave of the new McDavid autographed collection available to the public. A handful of highlights include a solid Lucite hand-signed and numbered Oilers puck, a limited edition signed and framed ‘Breaking Through’ piece that captures McDavid mid-shot with an actual puck breaking through the Plexiglass, and a stunning 28”x16” bird’s eye view of McDavid on the ice, appropriately named ‘Great From Above.’
