2012-13 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey Trade Rookie Card Details Confirmed

2012 13 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey Trade Upper Deck 260x184 ImageEven with the NHL's lingering labor dispute, the hobby continues to get new hockey cards. And while 2012-13 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey still has a strong crop of Young Guns rookie cards, many collectors are wondering if they might have seen an even better lineup if the season went ahead as planned. Upper Deck appears to have been thinking the same thing, creating three Trade Upper Deck mystery rookie redemptions.

Upper Deck has confirmed details on the cards, confirming the three cards make up their own insert set. They are not considered part of the base set. Nor will the final cards be autographed or have memorabilia swatches as some online sellers have been saying.

Whenever the lockout ends and NHL hockey continues, Upper Deck will pick who they think are the three best rookies and start redeeming the cards.

Trade Upper Deck cards are inserted 1:517 hobby packs, 1:7,232 retails packs, 1:40,320 retail tins and 1:16,416 retail blaster box packs.

During the set's first week on the market, sales of the Trade Rookie cards have ranged from about $30 to just under $130. This was amidst much speculation as to what the cards program entailed.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
