New International Women’s Day PWHL digital trading card set to be available on Upper Deck e-Pack® – league’s first cards as 2024 season ramps up


CARLSBAD, CA (March 7, 2024) – Upper Deck, the worldwide leader in entertainment and sports collectibles, today unveiled its exclusive license with the newly formed Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL), where the world’s best women hockey players compete in a six-team league. The PWHL made history earlier this year by dropping the puck on its inaugural season in January 2024 and continues to set attendance records. Under the license, Upper Deck will join them in making history by being the first, exclusive licensed producer of female-only physical and digital trading cards for the PWHL.

“This collaboration represents a shared commitment to advancing hockey and providing opportunities for all athletes to excel on and off the ice,” said McKenzie Young, Marketing Lead, Upper Deck. “We’re enthusiastic about championing the growth of women’s hockey and inspiring the next generation of both athletes and collectors.”

To celebrate the license and International Women’s Day, Upper Deck released a fully accessible, free digital trading card set for fans to kick-start their collection, on e-Pack®. This set of ‘Inspirational Icons’ features decorated American and Canadian Olympians and World Championship gold medalists in Emily Clark (PWHL Ottawa), Kendall Coyne Schofield (PWHL Minnesota), Savannah Harmon (PWHL Ottawa), Hilary Knight (PWHL Boston), Sarah Nurse (PWHL Toronto), Marie-Philip Poulin (PWHL Montréal), Abby Roque (PWHL New York), and Natalie Spooner (PWHL Toronto). Today through March 26, 2024, Upper Deck is allowing fans and collectors to add these trading cards to their collection.

“Upper Deck’s unparalleled expertise in sports collectibles makes them an ideal partner as we continue to build our community,” said Amy Scheer, Senior Vice President of Business Operations, PWHL. “Together, we will elevate the visibility of the PWHL, inspiring fans around the world to embrace the passion of our game and connect with stars of our league.”

Collectors will want to be on the lookout at local hobby shops and on Upper Deck e-Pack later this year for more product announcements. Fans can add the free digital trading cards to their collection at
