Collecting hockey cards is something that has gone on for years and will continue to go on for years.
The Upper Deck company is using “Hockey Day in Canada” to have their annual “Hockey Card Day in Canada”.
The trading card company has aligned themselves with stores across Canada handing out free packages or sheets of hockey cards.
The cards contain rookies like Toronto’s Auston Matthews and Winnipeg’s Patrick Laine along with current day stars Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid and hall of famers like Patrick Roy and Wayne Gretzky.
Legends Sports Memorabilia in Regina is one of a handful of places in Regina where the promotion is taking place. Owner Trent Herda believes the art of hockey card collection has gone to a new level since you can now get cards that are autographed or have some piece of memorabilia.
Some other places were cards are being given away include London Drugs and Toys R’Us outlets.
