After a devastating tornado hit Edmonton in 1987 the response from the community in the recovery process was incredible. The mayor at that time, Laurence Decore, used the term 'City of Champions' when referring to Edmonton which then became a slogan used around the city. The slogan was eventually added to the welcome signs. This UDA designed image shows McDavid skating on a frozen river in front of a backdrop of the beautiful city of Edmonton. McDavid signed this NHL licensed 24X20 image in gold paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated's Five-Step Process. Every signed product comes fully certified with a Certificate of Authenticity.
