2017-18 Upper Deck Splendor Hockey Cards
Moving to the hit-based format seen across the hobby, the debut for 2017-18 Upper Deck Splendor Hockey promises "one magnificent hit per box."
Among the key points for NHL collectors, print runs are no higher than 36 copies, every card features an on-card autograph and/or quality relic, and all cards come in a one-touch case.
2017-18 Upper Deck Splendor Autographs
Occupying the largest percentage of the 2017-18 Upper Deck Splendor Hockey checklist, the base set works with 150 on-card autographs in Bordered (#/36) and Borderless (#/36) editions. Both also have Silver (#/22), Red (#/11), Gold (#/5) and Black (1/1) parallels.
Other signed sets include Black and White Autographs that come in Silver (#/27), Copper (#/12), Gold (#/6), and White (1/1) versions, while the Showpieces auto relic breakdown features Silver (#/27), Blue (#/15), Gold (#/5), and Black (1/1) options. Another hard-signed choice is found in Splendid Signatures, issued in either base (#/24), Blue (#/15), Gold (#/5), or Black (1/1). The Auto Pucks (#/15) set obviously adds pieces of game-used hockey pucks. There is also a one-of-one parallel.
Highlighting NHL legends are the numbered Cut Signatures cards, including a signature for Lord Stanley taken from a 1879 military commission document, as well as Premium Materials Cut Signatures, and Signature Handles (1/1) cards, which contain a game-used stick nameplate.
2017-18 Upper Deck Splendor Memorabilia
Although 2017-18 Upper Deck Splendor Hockey appears to be more filled with autographs, there are some impressive relics, as well. Splendid Swatches makes good use of a jumbo patch, and Silver Sticks (#/10) is reserved for those to play 1,000+ games. These limited cards have a sterling silver medallion shaped like a hockey stick.
