2011-12 Parkhurst Champions Hockey is an all retired star set that combines the look of past Upper Deck Parkhurst sets with a configuration like the Champ's sets from a couple of years ago. Crisp photography, on-card autographs, mini parallels, original art and bizarre prehistoric fossils and artifacts are among the many highlights of the historically based set. The introduction of Wire Photos brings some of hockey's most iconic pictures to cardboard within the context of which they actually appeared.
