2014-15 Upper Deck Premier Acetate Autograph Patch Rookie Gallery

Card companies have been borrowing concepts from one another for decades. Generally speaking, it's not a bad thing if the result is cool cards. The 2014-15 Upper Deck Premier Hockey Acetate Autograph Patch Rookies fall under this category. Although they draw easy comparisons to the RAP cards in 2013-14 Panini National Treasures Hockey, the idea behind them make for some of the best rookie cards of the year.

There are a total of 42 Acetate Autograph Patch Rookies in 2014-15 Upper Deck Premier Hockey. At least one is in every box of the high-end product. The vast majority of them are numbered to a somewhat manageable 299. However, five top players are short-printed to 199 copies. Johnny Gaudreau, Aaron Ekblad and Jonathan Drouin are among the tougher ones to find.

The 2014-15 Upper Deck Premier Acetate Autograph Patch Rookies have a few things going for them. For starters, the patch swatches are on the generous side. They come from photo shoot jerseys that don't have the same appeal as gamers for a lot of collectors, but they make for attractive cards. Autographs come on-card so there aren't any stickers. The use of acetate stock brings all the elements together that's unique from other sets this year.

The biggest drawback of the Acetate Autograph Patch Rookies is redemptions. More than a quarter of the cards come in the form of an IOU.

Below is a full gallery of the set save for Victor Rask who has proven to be elusive thus far.
