2013 National Hockey Card Day Canada Complete Set

Since I wasn't able to participate in Upper Deck's National Hockey Card Day promotion (for obvious reasons), I did the next best thing, and purchased the full set off of Ebay. On Feb. 9 of this year, collectors were able to gotheir Canadian LCS and pick up a 5-card pack of the product. The regular set contains 15 cards and their is a card #16 that was not included in packs, and just given out to customers who made a purchase.

The regular set is broken up into 3 5-card subsets: Canada's Rookies (rookies, obviously), Pride of Canada (current players), and Hockey Heroes (retired players). Card #16 is a Memorable Moments card of Mario Lemieux and Wayne Gretzky from when they played together during the 1987 Canada Cup.

Here's a quick look at the full 16-card set:

Canada's Rookies: 1 - Jaden Schwartz, 2 - Tyson Barrie, 3 - Carter Ashton, 4 - Mark Stone, 5 - Casey Cizikas

Pride of Canada: 6 - Sidney Crosby, 7 - Jarome Iginla, 8 - Jordan Eberle, 9 - John Tavares, 10 - Martin Brodeur

Hockey Heroes: 11 - Bobby Orr, 12 - Joe Sakic, 13 - Eric Lindros, 14 - Mario Lemieux, 15 - Wayne Gretzky

Memorable Moments: 16 - Lemieux & Gretzky 1987 Canada Cup 

It's a pretty cool set that can be had for a pretty cheap price, and being an American, Ebay was pretty much the only way for me to get my hands on it. Maybe my LCS has a few packs left over and I can try build the NHCD America set.
