The chromium offshoot of the main OPC set, 2016-17 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey features a quality take on the popular brand. Focusing on hard-signed rookie content, each hobby box includes one autograph card.

With 150 veterans and 50 Marquee Rookies, the 200-card base set offers moderate coverage of the league. Pushing that further are the many parallels: Rainbow (1:4 packs), Ice Blue Traxx (1:10 packs), Red Prism (#/199), Royal Blue Cubes (#/99), Seismic Gold (#/50), Orange Rainbow (#/25 - hobby),  Emerald Surge (#/10) and Golden Treasures (1/1).

Showcasing on-card signatures for top rookie talent, Rookie Auto inserts (1:36 packs) offer six parallel tiers, including Rainbow (1:180 packs), Red Prism (#/50), Seismic Gold (#/25), Emerald Surge (#/10), one-of-one Golden Treasures and hobby-only Rainbow Orange (#/15).

Bringing more design variety to 2016-17 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey, the OPC Retro inserts fall, on average, 1:4 packs. The 100-card set is joined by Rainbow (1:20 packs), Gold Rainbow (#/149), Orange Rainbow (#/49), and Red Rainbow (#/15) parallels along with Black Rainbow Autographs. 

Closing 2016-17 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey out, a trio of unique, die-cut inserts combine to fall approximately 1:8 packs. This includes NHL Crest Logo (1:15 packs), Platinum Phenoms (1:27 packs), and Puck Personas (1:22 packs). In addition, each insert comes as a limited, hard-signed Rainbow Autograph parallel.

2016-17 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey will also be found on ePack.

Release Date: 3/29/2017; ePack - August 2017
Product Configuration: 4 cards per pack, 20 packs per box, 16 boxes per case (2 inners)

  1. In any other year I would rate this a 5 hands down. What is stopping that rating? Simple, it is UD’s choice to release more and more products on ePack.

    Platinum is going to be released on ePack along with a number of other products this year. Sorry…a big booooooooo to UD and the finger that you are giving to the hobby shops.

    You see the trend right? Eventually every product will be released on ePack, it’s just a matter of time. I feel bad for the hobby shops, just not fair at all.

  2. In regards to James…Brick and Mortar card shops are going to be history soon. It’s not worth it to pay rent and maintain the hours unless you’re a destination shop in your state/province. Everyone is trading online. Card shows will be history, as well. In regards to the product, OPC Platinum is THE hockey product that I wait the entire year for. Thank you, Upper Deck for reviving OPC.

  3. The fact that this is on epack is a double edged sword. Means that there will be tons of singles online at very cheap prices, presuming the gamblers don’t lose interest in the product early on. That being said, supporting epack is not something I like to do. Don’t have access to a shop? Order from one online. Simple. lets not pretend epack is anything other than a way to appeal to gamblers (the software is pretty much written to behave like a VLT machine / slot machine)

    I don’t believe epack will ever replace well run Hobby Shops. Sure there are a lot of places run by strange people that simply try to rip off customers as much as possible, but my local shop is great and if it ever goes under I’m done in this hobby. Take note upper deck, the gamblers ate up epack in the McDavid year but with weaker rookie classes better hope you don’t alienate too many of your regular customers.

  4. My favorite issue the few years they have been producing it. Bad News, no Gretzky autos in the product this year.

  5. just dont buy epacks..so they will go away

  6. Love this stuff. Opened my 2nd box and got an Emerald Surge auto /10 Auston Matthews. Felt like a kid again. It has been awhile since I jumped around after opening a box.

  7. I really don’t understand the hype about this product. After I cracked 2 cases, I can barely name 2-3 decent cards. I’ve never liked Platinum. I know people love it, but I don’t think the price is justified. It’s the same thing every year. The die-cuts are nicer than last year though and I appreciate the hard signed cards, but I feel that the numerous parallels are redundant. Anyhow, this is personal and I cannot complain too much about its value. From this point of view it’s an mediocre product, but definitely not the worst.

  8. Inexcusable not to have Vladimir Tarasenko in any of the hits.

    1 base card and that’s it?

    Aside from that… Same style, same look, same everything from every previous incarnation of this set.

    The only plus is that autos are hard signed, though you’d have you buy multiple cases to get anything worthwhile.

    Hard pass.

  9. Wondering what a Rainbow Color Wheel auto is? If anyone knows that would be great. Don’t see it in the checklist

  10. Thanks, Trey, for all all the work you put into these posts.
    I appreciate having a great resource, when I’m thinking of buying boxes, to refer to.
    Now if we could lose the folks that constantly complain, it would be perfect. I recognize one or two that never have anything positive to say.
    My suggestion to them is get a new hobby, or quit complaining.
    Platinum is always a favourite, and at a price point more can afford.

  11. 3 star product for me for a number of reasons. Platinum COULD BE one of the greatest products to look forward to every year if it didnt have a few problems….


    -The price isn’t terrible
    -Configuration appeals well enough to set builders
    -On-card autos
    -Box configuration makes good enough sense
    -I’m happy the base rookies are part of the base numbering and not an insert set like last year


    -ePack inclusion
    -the card design from OPC wasn’t great this year meaning the platinum version has the same issue
    -cutting quality from UD on chrome cards still not great…tons of curling and inconsistent edging as well as microscratches
    -there needs to be a little bit more depth in the master set…the 150+50 base set is perfect. The die-cut insert sets are just fine…but there needs to be a bit more. When opening a pack of cards it’s nice to have the “anything can happen” feeling. This product lacks that to an extent as there is so little beyond the base + die-cuts and auto versions. Artifacts is a perfect example of a set that has the base, rookies and parallels but a whole host of other fun stuff that you CAN get even if not very often. Platinum should have the same depth of checklist as artifacts

    What a democratic thought mate! I would say that from now on everybody should only give 5 stars and praise everything Upper Deck does and releases…Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. Period.

    I complain when I think I must to and I applaud when I think it deserves that. I always believed this hobby is very personal. Besides some people are collectors, some others are sellers. Of course they’ll have different opinions about this.

  13. Trey,
    I’ve seen advertising pics of an auto for Connor McDavid (Plantinum Phenoms) but don’t see it listed here?

  14. Yeah, I noticed that too. It was part of the original solicitation but apparently never made it into the final product likely because they are all on-card signatures.

  15. Thanks, Trey.
    Kinda sucks. No McDavid autos in this set at all.
    Also weird that they have Gretzky cards with two different teams.
    I appreciate your quick reply.

  16. Glad to be busting a product with some actual resale value. Correlation and surface scratching is terrible but that is the UD standard these days. Lots of rookies and nice looking set.

  17. I disagree with Scott. I get that feeling all the time opening Platinum. You never no what you are going to get. I love the low numbered parallel card. Hard signed auto’s compared to more expensive boxes with stickers. Sure it is average auto’s bur you get 8 if you buy an inner shipper. If you buy a case of Series 1, you get 2 worthless auto’s.
    I would of liked a few more veteran auto’s in this set. The two OPC products is what I love about the hobby of collecting cards. I may of given up on series 1 and 2, because I think it is way overpriced.

  18. you know what would be nice is for each commenter to indicate whether they are a collector or a seller, that way I can ignore the comments of the
    sellers. they’ll never be a product to make them happy. platinum has been like this for years. some of us collectors like to see products stay the same. next thing you know people will want topps to eliminate refractors.

  19. I think e-Pack edition for OPC Platinum is good idea from Upper Deck company. I am from Europe and I like to make some trades with collectors form USA or Canada. There is not not so deep density and demand for hockey cards in all USA local stores areas… So why UD company shoul to pay price for all-USA states distribution? I think Upper Deck company exactly isn’t savior for local cards shops there. Simply I am fan of the e-Pack products idea as it allow collector to make trade without shipping fees and delivery time. Will break box or two there.

  20. Agreed, Damone.

    Although I was hoping for a McDavid auto in Platinum, I did score a 15/15 Retro Red Rainbow parallel of his.
    I love this product. Too many others are being priced out of reach with fewer cards and packs in a box.

  21. Yea funny the seller who sold a card for $500 is complaining about no value.

  22. And what’s funny about that, Jason? I rate a product accordingly to average pulls. I will not give it a 5 star just because I got crazy lucky or because a customer was willing to pay a big price for a card. I think people need to be more accepting about different opinions.

  23. I like this product. The cards are well designed and the rate of hits, major or minor, are very good. Having said that I would like to know if anyone has pulled an auto from the 2016-17 product that is actually a 2015-16 product. The auto in one of my boxes was a JVR Team Logos Auto from the 2015-16 series. I have not heard of such a pull from this year’s Platinum boxes. Trey if you see this post could you pass on any info you may have about such a pull? I have to admit I am a bit perplexed getting this card as my one-a-box autograph card.

  24. As a follow up to my previous comment, I took a look at the 2015-16 checklist for the Team Logo Rainbow Autos and I see that James Van Riemsdyk was not included in the list. The card has the “Congratulations. You have received a….” on the back and is certified as to being signed by JVR by the Upper Deck company. It is numbered T-27. So now I am thinking I have an uncirculated JVR auto that was put into a 2016-17 pack and not announced by UD. An enigma wrapped in mystery.

  25. I just saw the card at the very bottom of the checklist listing. Silly me for not reading the entire list. I feel a bit dumb after posting my concern. oh well, live and learn. Nonetheless, I still like this product very much. It has an old school vibe with a modern attractive look and plenty of well designed cards to put into a binder.

  26. I have seen quite a few cards from this set on Ebay where they describe a parallel card as Rainbow Color Wheel, is that just the rainbow parallel itself or is this an unannounced parallel. The ebay asking price seem to be higher than just the regular rainbow parallel card.

  27. Richard: They are different parallels. Basic Rainbow versions come in regular packs while the Color Wheel parallel is a physical achievement card from ePack.

  28. Hi
    Where are the Kasperi Kapanen odds? They are available on the epack site but I do not see the odds here

  29. Neil: Since the Kapanen card is only on listed on the ePack checklist, we don’t have the individual pack odds like the rest of the rookie autographs.

  30. Thanks for the quick response.
    Overall I am an addict of the color parallels and have made some rainbow pin-wheel autos on the epack site – its a fun set to collect – reminds me of topps chrome.
    Just my 2-cents on the set.

  31. What is up with the Rainbow Color Wheels? It is popping up everywhere on ebay ever since the epack started. They were limited in the cases. I never got one.
