2016-17 Upper Deck Black Hockey CardsBrand: UD Black
Boasting only on-card signatures, 2016-17 Upper Deck Black Hockey returns with a tweaked format and 25% lower price point. Each box contains at least two autographs along with two other hits. This marks a drop from 2015-16 UD Black, which had five total hits per box.
Falling one per box, the 40-card base set comes in a main version, numbered to 299, in addition to Gold Spectrum (#/25) and Black & Blue (1/1) parallels.
Occupying the remainder of each box, hits take many forms in 2016-17 Upper Deck Black Hockey. Leading the way are the hard-signed autographs. Young stars can be found in the Rookie Signatures set, with Levels limited to 249, 149 or 25 copies, while Lustrous Rookie Signature cards tackle 35 of the top rookies with an acetate design. These also come in Black & Blue parallels, limited to five copies. Similarly, the Pro Penmanship Autograph inserts incorporate acetate and are available as Combos and Trios. Color Coded Autographs (#'d) and Autographed Relics (#'d) promise the "most stunning on-card autographs of the year." The Obsidian Signatures insert is another striking auto-relic choice.
Not to be outdone, memorabilia cards have strong representation in 2016-17 Upper Deck Black Hockey, as well. This includes base Black Hole Jersey (1:3 packs) and Black Hole Jersey Autograph (1:5 packs) inserts for rookies, stars and all-time greats. Parallels include Premium Relics (#/15) and Premium Relic Autographs (#/10). Showcasing jumbo swatches, Star Trademarks and Rookie Trademarks provide base jersey cards plus Autograph (#/5) versions.
Finally, premium books add to the pulls in 2016-17 Upper Deck Black Hockey. This includes Quad Jersey and Quad Patch Booklets for top players. Meanwhile, Fresh Gear Booklet cards contain glove, jersey, patch and stick pieces for popular rookies. The Fresh Gear line also has a rare Autograph parallel.
