“It’s not every day a hockey starved community sees the NHL return after a 15-year hiatus, but that’s what happened this year in Winnipeg, Manitoba,” reads a release from Upper Deck. “Fan support for the team has been amazing thus far and the Winnipeg Jets have become the hottest ticket in town. Unfortunately many Winnipeg Jets players won’t be featured on trading cards in their new uniforms until later on in the season because of how far in advance photo selection is done for trading card sets.”
If you want in on this collection, you’ll need to act fast. Stores will begin to stock the very limited quantities on November 8 and once they’re gone, well, they’re gone. Every player in the set will be featured wearing their new Winnipeg Jets uniform, not those old Atlanta Thrashers ones that so many sets include.
In early November, Upper Deck will commemorate the return of the Winnipeg Jets with a special 15-card set of current Jets players available as a gift with purchase at Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealer throughout the province of Manitoba.
