Long Awaited Authentic Autographed Memorabilia for the 2020 No. 1 NHL DraftTMPick and Exclusive Upper Deck Spokesman Now Available
Carlsbad, Calif. (April 27, 2021) – Memorabilia collectors have been patiently waiting, and starting today, they can finally get their hands on autographed New York Rangers® jerseys and gloves from Alexis Lafrenière.
Upper Deck, the premier global sports and entertainment collectibles company, announced today the first release of Lafrenière-signed NHL® jerseys and gloves. New products launching include autographed home and away jerseys as well as gloves signed by the 2020 No. 1 NHL DraftTM pick.
The signed jerseys and gloves are the latest in a growing collection of autographed Lafrenière memorabilia from Upper Deck. Earlier this year Upper Deck released an autographed Draft Day signed print of the rookie donning New York Rangers® gear, along with a variety of autographed Rangers® hockey pucks. The company’s exclusive Lafrenière collection also includes Team Canada and Rimouski Océanic autographed memorabilia items.
“Anticipation was high among collectors for Lafrenière autographed NHL items from the moment he stepped on the ice,” said Upper Deck Authenticated Director, Gabriel Garcia. “We have watched Alexis evolve from being a No. 1 Draft pick to playing a key role for the Rangers® in his rookie season, and we are ecstatic to bring collectors along this journey with us.”
Lafrenière made his NHL® debut on opening night for the Rangers® and scored his first goal in January, during an overtime game-winner against the Buffalo Sabres®. Recently, he was bumped up to the team’s first line.
Upper Deck announced an exclusive trading card and memorabilia deal with Lafrenière before being drafted in the NHL®, adding him to a roster that includes some of the world’s greatest athletes – such as Wayne Gretzky, Patrick Roy and Connor McDavid.
