Hockey fans get image vote

Upper Deck offering fans a chance to vote on Young Guns Rookie cards

Upper Deck is giving fans a vote in selecting images for its Young Guns Rookie cards.

Fans are invited to take on the role of photo editor by helping select final images for cards that will be released in 2015-16 Upper Deck Series Two Hockey. This year’s class is one of the driving forces behind the huge demand for 2015-16 hockey cards. Many stores have already sold out of Series One Hockey and have seen a boost in pre-orders for Series Two, as well as several other upcoming trading card releases.

Luke Yamamoto, owner/operator of Penticton Sports Cards and Collectable, received the Upper Deck Series One Hockey on Nov. 12 and has sold 27 boxes. Each box contains 24 packs.

“I’ve had lots of people want to buy more,” said Yamamoto, who also had the retail product come out Thursday.

Fans can vote for their favorite ‘Young Guns’ rookie card photos of Jack Eichel (Buffalo Sabres), Jake Virtanen (Vancouver Canucks) and Noah Hanifin (Carolina Hurricanes). Images and voting details can be found at Votes can be cast anytime between now and midnight on Nov. 30.

“Allowing fans to be a part of the creative process brings a new element to the cards they already love” said Chris Carlin, Sr. Marketing and Social Media Manager at Upper Deck in a press release. “These cards are going to be treasured for years to come, so it only makes sense to give collectors a chance to help create them. We are also encouraging fans to use the hashtag #YoungGuns to share their favorite images and comments.”

Fans can look forward to collecting 2015-16 Upper Deck Series Two Hockey when the cards hit shelves in February 2016.
