Hockey Hall Of Fame/Upper Deck Captains Jersey Relic Cards

I think that Upper Deck has hit on something that could possibly go over well in other sports. In conjunction with a special exhibition at the Hockey Hall of Fame Upper Deck has created a 30-card relic set consisting of each NHL team’s captain(s). The exhibition, NHL Captains Class of 2013, is part of the NHL Team Fan Days summer time exhibition at the Toronto based Hockey Hall of Fame, they will have a jersey of each team’s captain and alternate captain on display and on select days the first 1,000 fans to enter with a paid admission will receive one of the jersey relic card for that day’s team.
Each team will be spotlighted one specific day during July or August and the promotion began July 8th with Ryan Getzlaf of the Anaheim Ducks with the final day being August 23rd with Andrew Ladd of the Winnipeg Jets. When you consider the Hockey Hall of Fame entrance fee is only C$17.50 you cannot lose if you are in the area. You actually get a 50% discount if you wear apparel of the scheduled day’s team.
The design is the exact same design as the base jersey relics included in the 2012-13 Upper Deck NHL release with the only difference being the Hockey Hockey Hall of Fame logo on the bottom left corner. Surprisingly I cannot find any Getzlaf or Chara cards up for auction.
