Pacific Increases Presence at Toronto Spring Expo

2004 Spring Expo - 
Stajan Card Pacific Trading Cards has announced it will increase its presence at the 2004 Sports Card and Memorabilia Expo in Toronto later this month. The three-day show, which runs April 30-May 2 at the International Centre on Airport Road, is expected to again draw between 15,000-20,000 collectors with the focus on hockey.

Pacific has produced a special set of Toronto Spring Expo rookie cards that includes Matt Stajan, Marc-Andre Fleury, Eric Staal, Dustin Brown, Patrice Bergeron, Jordin Tootoo, Antoine Vermette and Nathan Horton. The set is available as a redemption for any collector opening any Pacific hobby box at the Pacific booth. There are 99 serial-numbered gold sets, which will be given away for the first 99 boxes opened when the show begins, and 499 serial-numbered silver sets.

Pacific is also making a number of stamped one of one cards which will also be given out randomly for boxes purchased. Details will be announced at the show.

In addition to the redemption, Pacific is also going to hold Pacific Nights Pack Wars promotions at their booth every two hours throughout the weekend. While the focus of the Expo will be on Pacific's NHL products, the company will also be promoting other lines of trading cards at the show. They will be previewing their upcoming Pacific Prospects AHL hockey card set, which releases in May, and there will also be a booth dedicated to the newly resurrected WHA. Pacific autographed WHA cards of Bobby hull and Andre Lacroix will be available at the show, as well as licensed merchandise from other WHA licensees. Pacific will also be previewing its 2004 CFL football cards, and their booth will be flanked by the Toronto Argonauts booth and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats booth. Both of those CFL teams will have players appearing for autographs throughout the weekend.

"This will be one of the best Spring Expo shows ever, and being the only U.S.-based card company to come up for the show, we were happy to step up our presence at the event," said Pacific VP of Marketing Jeffrey Morris. "This is the ultimate show for hockey collectors, and fans and collectors travel from all over North America and Europe to be there. The passion and excitement of this year's NHL playoffs will add to the event, especially in Toronto where the Leafs are coming off a big win against Ottawa and will be in the thick of their series against the Flyers."
