The NHL and digital-scale retailer Walmart are collaborating to make a digital replica of the original 1984 Stanley Cup Final that is a game-changer for fans and collectors alike.
The digital replica is a digital scale model of the Stanley Cup, which is the centerpiece of a new partnership between the NHL and Walmart that is set to kick off later this month.
The NHL and its digital partners are launching a new digital game-capture app called Digital Mirage, which will allow fans to take their game-worn Stanley Cup and scan the top of the puck in order to capture the puck and digitally reproduce the original image.
The app will be available for download on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at digitalmirage.com.
The replica is set up with a video of the actual game from 1984, as well as a set of game rules and a guide to how to play.
The replica is available for preorder starting Tuesday, and will be on sale for $299 at digital mirage.
The NHL also announced this week that the Stanley and NHL Cup will be reissued on Jan. 30 at digital-mirage retail stores in the U.S. and Canada, beginning at 8 a.m.
Fans can also view the original game, which was played in Toronto on Jan, 8, 1984, and the replays from the rest of the Cup’s eight seasons are available online at digital.mirage and www.nhl.com/mirage .
Fans can also see the original film of the 1984 game that is being released in theaters in December.
