Upper Deck announced Tuesday that it has signed NHL superstar Connor McDavid to a long-term contract extension as the exclusive provider of McDavid collectibles, trading cards and memorabilia.
McDavid, the league’s leading scorer and most dominant player, has won the Art Ross Trophy as the league’s leading scorer, the Hart Trophy as the league MVP and the Ted Lindsey Award as the league’s most outstanding player each multiple times.
“It's an honor to include Connor McDavid as a member of the Upper Deck family, and we're excited to continue our longstanding exclusivity for McDavid trading cards, collectibles, and memorabilia,” said Upper Deck President Jason Masherah. “Our team works diligently to bring unique and high quality McDavid merchandise to collectors so they can capture memorable moments of their favorite player and favorite sport."

Upper Deck's portfolio of McDavid products showcases his greatest accomplishments and includes some of the most exciting collectibles and trading cards on the market today. Collectors can now purchase a 20x24 "Up Close & Personal" Stretched Canvas autographed piece, as well as an authentic Edmonton Oilers alternate navy Adidas jersey autographed and inscribed "500 NHL Points 2/17/21."
One of the grandest pieces in Upper Deck’s memorabilia collection is "Sharpshooter" a limited-edition, autographed 70"x 32" framed piece that features a CCM Ultra Tacks hockey stick breaking through the plexiglass. The hockey stick is the authentic model McDavid used early in his career. This piece set the record for largest "Breaking Through" in UDA history, and more importantly, set the tone for McDavid's awe-inspiring young career.
"I'm excited to continue working exclusively with Upper Deck to bring collectors these exciting collectibles, as Upper Deck truly brings the best in the industry in terms of quality, authenticity and innovation, as well as authentic collectibles," McDavid said in a release from Upper Deck. "I love knowing that passionate fans are getting their hands on these items and look forward to creating new memorabilia-collecting opportunities with Upper Deck."
Fans can also buy two unique versions of what is believed to be the largest McDavid memorabilia signature Upper Deck ever produced — "The Show" — as well as an autographed collage that shows images of several milestones along with a timeline that describes major accomplishments. In addition, collectors can buy the signed and inscribed "Back to Back Art Ross" limited-edition piece of memorabilia showing two action shots of McDavid and the actual Art Ross Trophy, which now has his name engraved on it twice.
McDavid's standout 2021-2022 NHL season saw him score a career-high 123 points and lead the Oilers to the Western Conference finals. That momentum has already hit a new level this year with 48 points in his first 26 games.
