Black Diamond Hockey Rookie Gems Quad Diamond 1/1's via Live Draft
How cool would it be to land the first pick?
2013-14 Upper Deck Black Diamond Hockey Rookie Gems Quad Diamond Relics are some of the top hits in the set. And for once, they're a redemption you might want to actually receive. Featuring four diamonds embedded into the card, they're too big for packs. So redemptions are a given. But Upper Deck is adding a wrinkle to the redemption process to make the process interactive. Under normal circumstances, redemption cards stink. You sit there and wait. Weeks, months, sometimes years go by and you just wait. The only interaction you have with a typical redemption card is entering the number into a database and checking every few weeks to see if its status has changed.
Golden tickets are randomly inserted in 2013-14 Upper Deck Black Diamond Hockey packs. Those who find one are guaranteed to get a Rookie Gems Quad Diamond Relics card. But which one won't be known until April.
The cards will be picked via a live online draft, the Diamond Draft. Much like the NHL Draft Lottery, those who redeem a golden ticket will have their name written on a ping pong ball.
On April 14, Upper Deck will host the Diamond Draft live and broadcast it via the Internet. To build suspense, ping pong balls will be picked in reverse order. To land the top pick, a collector will have to be the last ping pong ball.
When it comes time to draft, cards will fly furiously. Collectors will have one minute to make their pick from the available cards.
