I'm most definetely not the luckiest person in the hobby - never was, probably never will. ;)

Well, OK, maybe for that Yak auto pull, but...

But you always know some good luck is in your favour when you enter a contest on the National Hockey Card Day Facebook Page for one of 30 Canadian autographed cards, you send this email after recieving a notification from Facebook that Upper Deck is trying to contact you and can't:

And you get this reply:

Can't wait UD. Thanks! :D


  1. Congrats! I have never had luck with UD....hope it is a Penguin for you.

  2. Thanks! And yeah, haha. I always enter Panini contests and scavenger hunts, was sure my first card win from a card company was gonna be them. :)

    Penguins? Um... not looking good for me after reading the partial auto list posted on the ad I entered the contest using.

    Upper Deck has put together a small allotment of autographed Team Canada cards from players like Casey Cizikas, Marcus Foligno, Jonathan Bernier, Jamie Benn, Adam Henrique, Tyson Barrie, Cody Eakin, Ryan Ellis, Brayden Schenn & Sean Couturier to use with Canadian fans on National Hockey Card Day.

    Guess that kills my chance for a Crosby. ;)Probably Pen-less group. :)
