Fans that cannot wait for the return of hockey can start preparing for the upcoming season by collecting the new 2020-2021 Tim Hortons NHL Trading Cards.
Guests can purchase a pack of cards for $1 with the purchase of any qualifying beverage, or for $1.99 without a beverage. Each pack contains three cards with the chance to receive one of 87 special limited-edition cards signed by Sidney Crosby, one of 100 signed by Nathan MacKinnon, or one of 12,000 Wayne Gretzky tribute cards that commemorate his final season with the Edmonton Oilers.
There are 270 cards to collect in this season’s set, including the first card featuring Tim Horton. Other highlights of the 2020-2021 set include cards autographed by stars including Brady Tkachuk, Max Pacioretty, Phillip Danault, and Tanner Pearson.
Cards featuring a piece of an authentic, game-worn jersey from one of Auston Matthews, Alex Ovechkin, Connor McDavid, Carey Price, David Pastrnak, Jack Eichel, Leon Draisaitl, Mitch Marner, Ryan O’Reilly, Sidney Crosby, or Steven Stamkos are also up for grabs. Autographed versions of these cards by one of Tkachuk, Price, Elias Pettersson, Draisaitl, Marner, or Sean Monahan are also available.
Further, one of 100 special Timbits cards autographed by Brayden Point, which feature the Stanley Cup winner as a nine-year-old player, can be had.
Additionally, the company is launching the Tim Hortons Hockey Barbie dolls at participating restaurants across Canada, with 100 per cent of Tim Hortons’ net proceeds donated to Hockey Canada Foundation to support girls’ hockey.
There are two dolls to choose from, which come with a Tim Hortons hockey jersey, helmet, hockey stick, a doll stand and certificate of authenticity.
“As a leader in hockey in Canada, it’s important that Tims Hortons shows support for young girls who want to play the sport. We want to ensure that girls feel like they belong in hockey just as much as boys do,” said Hope Bagozzi, chief marketing officer for Tim Hortons. “We’re really excited about the impact of this partnership with Barbie and to show our strong support for girls’ hockey.”
“Barbie was founded in 1959 by Ruth Handler and the philosophy behind Barbie was that through the doll, a little girl could be anything she wanted to be. Today, with the launch of the two Tim Hortons Barbie dolls, girls can imagine themselves as a hockey player,” said Tara George, country head with Mattel Canada.
