Posted on 31st December 2013 by hockeymedia in Cards,The Want List | Tags: ,

NHLThe Buffalo Sabres distributed free Score hockey cards at their Dec. 29, 2013 home game. The hockey cards were distributed courtesy licensed manufacturer Panini America and local collector store Dave and Adam’s Card World. The first 10,000 fans attending the Sabres-Capitals game received the free cards.

The six cards in the set are Steve Ott, Marcus Foligno, Cody Hodgson, Ryan Miller, Rasmus Ristolainen, and Zemgus Girgensons.

Five cards were distributed at the game while the sixth card (Girgensons) was available exclusively at Dave and Adam’s Card World. While the cards feature the Score design, the promotional cards actually feature different photos than the regular set.

“The packs and cards were very well received by everyone in attendance at the game,” said Adam Martin, CEO of Dave and Adam’s. “The Buffalo Sabres did a tremendous job promoting the night and even put up a terrific ‘thank you’ message on the scoreboard during the game.”

Dave and Adam’s Card World has store locations in Tonawanda (two), Williamsville, Orchard Park and Niagara Falls. Of note, Girgensons will be signing autographs at the Tonawanda Sheridan Drive location on Feb. 4, 2014.
