Incredible only begins to describe the number of autographed cards in SP Authentic Hockey.

The Sign of the Times lineup then parlays to “Duals," some of which are Mystery Redemptions; “Trios" (numbered to 25); “Quads" (numbered to 10); and the super-rare “Fives," “Sixes," “Sevens" and “Eights." The “Autographed Future Watch" rookies are numbered to 999, while the special “Prestigious Pairings" collection – sporting combos like Joe Thornton/Dany Heatley, Vincent Lecavalier/Steven Stamkos and Jarome Iginla/Eric Staal – are all numbered to 100.
If autographed cards drive your collection, then SP Authentic's highly coveted autographed “Future Watch Patch" inserts (numbered to 100) of top rookies like Tavares, Duchene, van Riemsdyk, Hedman and Kane will really start to rev your engines. Likewise, the “Rookie Review" autographed patch cards, also numbered to 100, will pack plenty of excitement for collectors seeking coveted superstar patch cards.
