Relic Wear lets collectors take their memorabilia everywhere by Chris Olds

Every collector knows that storage and display of their prized memorabilia pieces presents challenges.

But there’s a new product that solves that and allows the owner to take their memorabilia with them anywhere they go.

Well, as long as they’re wearing it.

Relic Wear is a new line of limited-edition bracelets, keyrings and pendants which include at least one piece of game-used sports memorabilia from some of the biggest names in baseball and hockey.

“At the moment [we’re] geared toward hockey and the Winter Olympics,” said Alex Malone, the founder of Relic Wear, via email. “[But] we will even be providing a service for collectors to send us their game used patches to be made into custom pendants for them.”

Upper Deck announced the return of the “Biography of a Season” program for the 2008-09 NHL season.

Each week, collectors who visit Upper Deck Diamond Dealer locations can receive the latest card from the set when they purchase 2008-09 Upper Deck NHL cards. There will be a new card available each week throughout the season. (There will be 30 cards in the set.)

The content for Upper Deck’s “Biography of a Season” set will be determined throughout the season based on what is happening in the NHL. As new events happen, collectors can capture those memories with this set. The set starts out with a few moments from last season — Alexander Ovechkin breaking the NHL single-season record for goals by a left wing, Henrik Zetterberg winning the 2008 Conn Smyth and Detroit winning the Stanley Cup — and then on to Steven Stamkos becoming the first pick in the 2008 NHL draft.
