Upper Deck Celebrates 1967 Maple Leafs With Special Box Set

From March 2007 The 1966-67 Toronto Maple Leafs hold a special place in the hearts of fans old enough to remember watching them play. Believe it or not, that team was the last one from Canada's largest city to win the Stanley Cup, and the 2007 season marks the 40th anniversary of that accomplishment. Upper Deck has come up with a special set of hockey cards to pay tribute to that historic squad - a box set with a print run of 10,000 total sets. According to Upper Deck's press release, all of the box sets will come with 29 regular cards and one checklist card wrapped in cello. The first 1,000 sets will come with a numbered, oversized card and will be distributed in March at the '67 Leaf Tribute Dinner. The rest of the sets will have a non-numbered oversized card, but will also have one memorabilia card - an autograph, stick or jersey card - and will be sold in commemorative retail blaster boxes. The remaining 9,000 box sets will contain 29 regular cards and one checklist card wrapped in clear cello, one memorabilia card (autograph, jersey, or stick cards), and a non-numbered oversized card all packaged in a commemorative retail blaster box.

Last year around this time, I got the following cards signed IP from a fellow board member at hockeydb
Now I received Mr. Bower’s autograph TTM in 1985. You can read about it here. Johnny Bower
Now I received Mr. Baun’s autograph IP in the 80’s. You can read about it here. Bobby Baun
Now, if you could provide provenance, should an autograph be worth more if it was signed during the player’s playing days or shortly after he retired. Have you ever paid more when you’ve had a choice? It’s something that just popped into my head, I don’t know if this has been discussed before anywhere. ( in case you’re wondering, I wouldn’t pay a premium). Your thoughts would be most welcome.


  1. to me it makes no difference. Active player or honoured retiree, an auto is an auto.

  2. No its worth more if it comes with a coa from the team and it signed by the President of the club or general manager I.e a Doug gilmour card with c.o.a signed by cliff fletcher is worth more than Doug gilmour with c.o.a
