Notre Dame Hits ePack!

Interested in the newest Upper Deck epack product Notre Dame football 88? Well, we are here to walk you through how you can score some packs if it's your first time using it.

First you need to go to https://www.upperdeckepack.com/ . First thing you need to do is set up a free account that takes seconds.

After submitting your info, BOOM, this will come on like you had scored a goal. This is the first achievement just for signing up. 

Then you simply just need to go to the store option on the home page and select your product option and click the down selection under that product to choose how much you want to buy. It's that simple.

Then you just click open pack and hope you see some sirens blaring red. That means you hit the good stuff. This picture below is just an example of how to click open.

Some of the cards will always remain digital like the base, but you can combine those to make them something physical you can take home. That just requires you to link a “Check Out My Cards” account to Upper Deck e-Pack and transfer physical cards to COMC. Once transferred to COMC, you can have the cards shipped, or sell them on the COMC marketplace.  Once again, pretty simple.

Here is some info on the product and what you can find in it!
  • Find Gold and Blue (#'d to 88) parallels of the entire Base set.
  • Look for Defining Moments inserts highlighting key plays and moments from Notre Dame's 1988 Championship run!
  • Discover rare autographs from members of the 1988 Championship team with South Bend Standouts - Signatures Parallel (#'d to 25) and Fighting Irish Signatures cards.
There are also different levels of items to score as well. Just check out these images if you need to be more tempted....

BIG THINGS HAVE COME!

Upper Deck the leading card manufacturer in innovation has done it again. This time changing the way we view digital cards.

Upper Deck created the e-Pack, a digital platform where fans can open packs anytime, anywhere. Yes, anytime, anywhere. How can this not be exciting for us???

Info on this revolutionary innovation can be found here:

Here is also a short video on how the program works:

We think this is incredible. Finally a digital card you can actually own and not just stare at on your mobile device. You can buy packs and boxes and cases from anywhere. Even the bathroom! Bust a box right there on the toilet. Don't have an LCS, well, that doesn't matter, go to the e-pack website and buy a box. That TOPPS all others. You also get ONE FREE PACK PER DAY of 3 cards!!! FREE! 

Imagine if Upper Deck had access to all sports???!! You know, the reason we created the pages and created this blog. Right now it's just hockey and Upper Deck Series 1 which isn't shabby at all when you can #CollectConnor within. Those values and sales are through the roof! Yes, you can sell these cards on COMC too!

With this new revolution to sports cards, we encourage you strongly to continue to LIKE our pages on Facebook and send a message to all of the leagues that we want Upper Deck back in the game. The e-pack in general is a sign the hobby is heading in the right direction under Upper Deck's lead.

The Time For Love

As well all know, February is the time for love. And if you are looking to celebrate with your love, the day to do that is February 6th 2016.

When we are speaking of love, we are talking about your LOVE of Upper Deck Hockey Cards!! BOOOO YAH!

Here is the Checklist, images of this years promo. You can find that HERE:


We were also thinking, since this is such a big day every year, why can't this be put down on calendars as a National holiday??!! It does say, NATIONAL Hockey Card Day. And there are TONS of people who celebrate it. So let's start a revolution! Let's get this added to calendars. Let's send letters, emails whatever it takes to make the biggest day in hockey cards even bigger!!

Together we can all get Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day added to the holiday registry!!  

If you have Twitter or Facebook, let's get this hashtag trending, #NHCDNationalHoliday. Thanks in advance!
