    In addition to Gretzky and Lindros, the checklist includesplayers like Alexander Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, Carey Price and Steven Stamkos.

    To get in on the Priority Signings wrapper redemptionprogram collectors will need to purchase a box of 2011 NHL Parkhurst Champions, 2011-12 NHL BlackDiamond, 2011-12 NHL Upper Deck Series Two or 2011-12 NHL SP Game-Used from aCertified Diamond Dealer at the show. You will receive a voucher that you can bring to the Upper Deck boothalong with the wrappers from the box either on Friday, May 4 – 5:00 p.m. – 7:00p.m., Saturday, May 5 – 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., or Sunday, May 6 – 11:00 a.m.– 1:00 p.m. Each voucher will begood for a free random 2012 NHL Priority Signings autograph card.

    Upper Deck will also have plenty of eye candy on display andfree raffles throughout the weekend too.

    Another big addition to the Spring Expo is that Upper Deckwill fulfill redemptions for customers at the show for the first-time ever. Ifyou have outstanding redemptions with Upper Deck and would like to have themfulfilled or exchanged and available to pick up at the show, they will offerthat service to you. To take part in picking up your outstanding redemptionsand replacements at the Upper Deck Booth you need to send an email with the subject title “2012 NHL Spring Expo RedemptionProgram.” In the body of the email, please cut and paste the code and descriptionof the card(s) you would like fulfilled or exchanged. In twenty words or less,describe the type of replacements you would like to receive focusing more onteams, regions and brands you are interested in rather than particular playersif the card is not in stock. If you do not provide the information exactly asdescribed, Upper Deck will not be able to honor your request. Because this is anew program, Upper Deck will only be able to assist with a finite amount ofcustomers who are interested in participating. They will let collectors knowonce they cannot accept any additional requests. To pick up your cards duringthe show you will need to provide a government issued identification and signfor them in person. Only the actual card owners can pick up the cards, so youcannot pick up items for a friend. Hours for pick-up are Friday, May 4 – 2:00p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m and Saturday, May 5 – 12:30 p.m. –5:30 p.m.

    If you do not think you can be at the show on Friday, May 4or Saturday, May 5, it is best not to make a request because if you fail topick your cards up, you will not be able to request this service in the futureand there could be additional delays in getting these cards to you.
