In August, Upper Deck announced the signing of two-time NHL MVP Alexander Ovechkin and Hall-of-Famer Steve Yzerman to autograph products for the 2009-10 season.
Yzerman will appear as an autographed card in 2009-10 Black Diamond, SPx, and SP Game-Used as well as other products later in the season. His autograph has not appeared in Upper Deck products since 2005-06, however, he has appeared in various In The Game products during his absence from Upper Deck.
Alexander Ovechkin will appear exclusive to Upper Deck this fall. Ovechkin will also start to finally appear on packaging for various brands as well. After years of Sidney Crosby and Hall-of-Famers on virtually all boxes, collectors will finally see the best player in the NHL on the shelves as well.
UD Black Diamond, SPx, and SP Game-Used 2009-10 will be out soon and are available for pre-sale at Canada Card World
