Fan Pack: Vancouver Canucks

Earlier this summer, I spent an e-mail blast to professional hockey teams from North America to Europe asking whether they provided -- free of charge -- fan packs or promotional materials.

At first, I got some bounceback e-mails from bad addresses. Then came e-mails stating that fan packs required a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

Yesterday, the wait ended, thanks to the Vancouver Canucks.

Here's my report:

Team: Vancouver Canucks
Date sent: Aug. 15
Date received: Aug. 27
Elapsed time: 12 days
Items received: five player cards perfect for signing: Jeff Cowan, Brad Isbister, Ryan Kesler (shown above), Mattias Ohlund and Byron Ritchie; and a team sticker.

Good for the Canucks. Did you get the same cards?

They give out those cards at the rink too - if you go on one of the guided tours around GM place. I have that Kes one, my son chose Markus, and then they gave him a couple of extras too, and a Luongo trading card

It certainly sounds like the Canucks look out for the fans, either at home or across North America.

Thanks for sharing.
