Although many UD hockey sets have seen considerable overhauls for the '16-17 season, 2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey bucks that trend with a familiar hit-based format.

Matching the 2015-16 product, every hobby box averages five autographs or relics with one rookie patch autograph.

2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey Base / Parallels

In addition to the 100 base Rookies and Legends that combine to fall two per box, along with the base Rookie Variations (#/299 or #/199), the rest of 2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey exists in the hit realm.

Enhancing the base set, limited relic parallels extend to many of these options, including Base Jersey (#/199 or less), Base Premium Materials (#'d), Base Neckline (#/6), and Base Tag (#/3). First-year subjects offer Rookie Jersey (1:2), Rookie Patch (#/25), Rookie Neckline (#/12) and Rookie Tag (#/3) parallels.

2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey Autographs

Driving strong demand for 2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey, Acetate Rookie Auto Patch cards (#/299 or #/199) average one per box with a jumbo patch piece alongside an autograph signed directly on the card. Gold Spectrum, numbered to 25, and one-of-one Blue Spectrum parallels provide increased rarity. Autograph Rookies, numbered to 399, also have the same parallels noted above, as well as Silver Spectrum (#/25 or #/10). Looking back to an earlier design, 2003-04 Rookies Auto Patch Tribute inserts are limited to 99 copies with a low-numbered Gold parallel (#/15).

2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey

Moving to more seasoned NHL players, 2002-03 Veteran Auto Patch Tribute (#/25 or #/15) also relies on prior sets with a Gold (#/5) parallel. Established subjects lend their signatures to other lines such as Acetate Stars Auto Patch (#/49 or #/25), Inked Script (#'d), Premier Signatures (Stars - 1:5, Legends - 1:30), Signature Award Winners (#'d), and Signature Champions (#'d). Silver Spectrum parallels bring the print run down to five copies for these signed choices.

2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey Relics

Other hits in 2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey include the Mega Patch insert line. Single-player editions come as game-used Chest Logos (Hand #'d), Commemorative Logos (#/3), Shoulder Logos (#/3), and Sleeve Numbers (#/4) memorabilia pieces from star subjects. In addition, Duos (#/25) and Trios (#/5) versions exist for the Mega Patch and Mega Stick multi-player sets.

2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey

Showcasing a multi-relic layout, Premier Gear (#/15 or #/10) is new to 2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey with a variety of items that total five pieces per card. There are also Premier Duals Jersey (#/99), Trios (#/75), Quads (#/49 or #/25) and Swatches (#'d) inserts with Premium parallels for each.

  1. TBD cards = Horrible idea. Print the name of the athlete on the card, makes no sense not to. This makes buying and trading much more straight forward. Only reasons I can see is that you don’t want to chase the athlete for the cards and printed far less of those redemptions than you want collectors to think. Leftover cards to be used as replacement cards.

    34 ARAPs with top teams being:
    5 Arizona
    5 Toronto
    3 Columbus
    3 NY Islanders
    3 Winnipeg

    Over half the ARAPs are in 5 teams. No Guentzel or Provorov.

    Breakers: Team Randoms are the way to go. If you do Team Select, know that 12 teams do not have any ARAPs.

    Lets hope this checklist is updated with many big name rookie inclusions. They have 2 weeks to work on it.

  2. Not even a billionaire could complete this set. Where are the St. Louis Blues cards?

  3. Wow. Overwhelming set. Just looking for an expanded Legends set…disappointed to find most Legends relegated to either microscopic subset and /or SSP status in terms of inserts. Good luck collecting. Just looking for some Mike Bossy love..not Quadrophenia. I live in sane, sometimes rational world which I now concede is not the World of Upper Deck releases. Welcoming Topps or any other competitor back in the hockey card market. Thanks for listening.

  4. The dangers of getting into a master case split into two different random buy ins…have CBJ in the first half and Ottawa in the second…watch a Chest Patch of Anderson get pulled in the first half and a Sonny Milano RPA pulled it the second…ouch.

  5. My favourite product from UD, glad they brought it back in 14-15. I prefer the look of the RPAs in this product over The Cup.

    Saw a person buy into a Master Case with Toronto. SKUNKED, zero cards, not even a base card. Paid $800+. Ouch. The person took it well, I wouldn’t have. I could buy a NHL Shield card for that much and still have some $ left over.
