2017-18 Upper Deck Premier Hockey Cards


Product Details

User Rating:

Maintaining the quality look and feel of the NHL brand, 2017-18 Upper Deck Premier Hockey largely sticks with what it does best. For collectors this means a premium, hit-based product. Another strong selling point is the 100% rate for on-card autographs.

Wasting no time, fans of "The Great One" get a treat right off the bat with the added possibility of signed tins from the legendary Wayne Gretzky.

2017-18 Upper Deck Premier Hockey

Inside each metal tin, 2017-18 Upper Deck Premier Hockey packs five hits, just as it did in 2016-17.

2017-18 Upper Deck Premier Hockey Base / Parallels

Coming two per box, the 2017-18 UD Premier base set consists of stars (#/249) and legends (#/149). The base set is joined by limited relic parallels. These include Base Jersey (1:2) and Legends Jersey (1:20), along with numbered Premium Materials, Neckline (#/6) and Tag (#/3) versions. In addition, the Platinum Blue Spectrum Autograph parallel has just five copies.

Adding to that, base rookie cards are numbered to 399 or 199. Memorabilia parallels here consist of Rookie Jersey (1:2), Rookie Patch (#/36), Rookie Neckline (#/12) and Rookie Tag (#/3). Signed choices are offered with Rookie Silver Spectrum Autograph (Tier 1 - 1:3; Tier 2 - 1:25) and Rookie Platinum Blue Spectrum Autograph (#/5).
