Rangers unveil Stadium Series hockey jerseys

Posted on 20th December 2013 by hockeymedia in Game-Used,The Want List | Tags: ,

NHLThe New York Rangers are the latest team to unveil their specially-designed 2014 NHL Stadium Series hockey jerseys. The jerseys will be worn for a pair of outdoor games at Yankee Stadium in late January (Jan. 26 against the Devils and Jan. 29 against the Islanders).

Other Stadium Series games this 2013-14 NHL season will be played in Los Angeles (Jan. 25 between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks) and Chicago (Mar. 1 between the Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins). The Islanders, Kings, Ducks and Penguins have already unveiled their special jerseys.

Like the other jerseys in the series, the new Rangers gear features a chrome treatment to the logo. According to the league press release, the chrome is inspired from “details in the NHL shield, bringing a dynamic and modern perspective to conventional team identities. The chrome crest was developed using new technology that fuses print and embroidery and allows logos to be displayed as a high-resolution image incorporated into the crest. This technology also reduces the weight of the crest, resulting in a lightweight jersey for improved athlete performance.”

After the Rangers, the Blackhawks will be the next team to unveil their Stadium Series jersey.

Great Gretzky re-signed by the Upper Deck Company

NHLThe Upper Deck Company has signed Wayne Gretzky to a new contract for signed memorabilia and exclusive use on trading cards.

“As Upper Deck approaches its 25th Anniversary, the announcement of our expanded partnership with Wayne Gretzky couldn’t be better,” said Jason Masherah, president of Upper Deck. “While Upper Deck collectors continue to get excited about pulling Gretzky autographs from our hockey card packs, puck fans can now look forward to an amazing portfolio of Wayne Gretzky autographed memorabilia as well. We will offer several unique memorabilia pieces that are sure to be a hit with Gretzky fans everywhere.”

MORE FROM THE UPPER DECK COMPANY
A few highlights of the new collection include a “Tegata” print, a traditional form of Japanese memorabilia reserved only for the most elite athletes. The Gretzky Tegata will showcase an actual inked hand print, displayed over an intricate mosaic background featuring his most famous moments and action shots.

“The Show” will offer collectors the largest Wayne Gretzky autographed display ever produced. This Upper Deck exclusive piece will measure a whopping 46 by 20 inches, and features a colossal signature over two feet in length alongside an action packed shot of Gretzky. Upper Deck will also produce a series of limited edition “Curve” displays, where a unique Gretzky image and autographed puck combine for a dramatic visual inside of a dynamic 8.5″ x 11″ curve-shaped display.

Upper Deck will share details on compelling new Wayne Gretzky collectibles in the coming weeks with many items available for fans to purchase through the company’s new online store (www.upperdeckstore.com). Wayne Gretzky joins Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Landon Donovan as exclusive athletes for Upper Deck.

“We have enjoyed a great relationship with Hockey Canada and are very happy to bring Canadian hockey fans collectibles and trading cards featuring players from their beloved national team,” said Jason Masherah, president of Upper Deck. “Fans can expect Upper Deck to branch out by creating some compelling trading card releases for Hockey Canada in the future, while continuing to deliver meaningful content to existing hockey and multi-sport products.”
