    9-Year Old Collector Successfully Submits Design Idea to UD

    No mean-spirited jokes allowed. LOL

    When 9-year-old Andrew P. wrote a letter to Upper Deck with an idea for a new type of NHL® trading card, his parents didn’t expect much to come from it. Upper Deck’s Customer Care team works diligently to not only read and respond to customer inquiries, but to take action when something interesting comes their way. That was the case with young Andrew’s letter as he shared details on creating a new type of Mirror insert card where a player would be featured across from themselves. He even put together a diagram for how it would look.





    Billy Celio is the product manager for MVP Hockey and when our team shared Andrew’s letter with him, he was intrigued.
    “We don’t really take submissions from outside the company on card design, especially from 9-year-olds, but Upper Deck has always been known as, ‘The Collector’s Choice,’ and we find it important to listen to our fans. Andrew’s idea was a fun one we haven’t tried before and MVP was the perfect product to try it out on.”
    Andrew’s design comes to life in 2020-21 NHL MVP!




    Upper Deck’s design and operations team added some unique elements to the cards as well including adding rainbow foil to the cards to give them a mirror-like appearance.

    Upper Deck surprised Andrew (now 10-years-old) with a package that included several boxes of the new MVP hockey. It didn’t take Andrew long to get the foil flying as he ripped into packs looking to find copies of the cards he helped create.





    Carey Price fan and collector!

    most kids can't afford a hobby thats not cheap. Takes parents to get them involved. I used to do it in the early 90s collecting bottles and getting packs at corner store or gas station. The prices I see now most kids its not attainable at all realisticly

    That's a really good point, Way back then packs were only nickel,dime,quarters, Now even the products that are considered " low end " are still expensive to a majoirty of kids
