Hot off the press is news that Panini is about to become available through Universal Distribution in Canada exclusively. I haven't talked to the other distributors about this revelation but if this in fact true can an Upper Deck exclusivity be far behind ? How about In The Game going exclusive ? I'll keep you informed.
Happy Collecting !
Well here we are on a Monday with the month of September almost gone and no hockey in sight. For hockey fans this is another disgusting kick in the teeth by the greedy powers that be. For hockey card collectors this means cards being issued with last year's pictures and no new rookies. For store owners like myself, on top of all that we are faced with trying to keep interest in hockey cards going. This is something that we do on a daily basis anyways by talking product goods and bads with customers
The disappointing news about Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey (due out mid-November) was just given to me. The Young Guns Rookie Cards will only contain players who played at the end of last season and weren't included in last year's series 2. Unlike 2009-10 when Tavares, Duchene, Bozak and such were photographed at the rookie photo shoot and put on cards Upper Deck says that won't be done this year. What does this mean ? Most of all NO NAIL YAKUPOV !! Interest in this product will take a big hit knowing
We will be continuing our box break program this week with our break on Saturday of The Cup Next week we'll do Prime and possibly an Ultimate depending on time and interest. We'll also be doing box breaks for the new Panini Dominion at the end of the month. These breaks will all be the same with 10 spots and 3 teams per spot with a snake style draft. Spots will go quick for some products because of the shear limited product quantity and our reasonable spot prices.
Well 2011-12 Upper Deck The Cup is out and already the complaint emails are rolling in. It is very difficult for me to help anyone with this product as we are restricted by our Upper Deck Authorized Distributors. There are only two authorized distributors in Canada, one (in Quebec) is in bed with the guys southwest of us who get most of The Cup and the other (in the GTA) could only give us two tins. Another so-called distributor who isn't authorized by Upper Deck quoted us $419 a tin plus taxes
