2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey CardsBrand: O-Pee-Chee
A popular early-season NHL release evoking the look of a prior hobby era, 2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey goes deep with a massive base set, many parallels and several limited inserts.
As is tradition, the Hobby boxes don't guarantee any hits, but collectors can still find quite a bit packed into each Upper Deck box.
2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Base / Parallels
Centered around a 600-card set, the 2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey checklist has 500 base cards and another 100 High-Series SP subsets. The short-print lineup includes Marquee Rookies, Season Highlights, League Leaders and Team Checklists. There are also Retro (1 per pack) versions of the base options. These high-series cards and retro variations combine to fall two per pack.
Collectors can find holdover rookie players, such as Adam Gaudette, Casey Mittelstadt, Eeli Tolvanen and Ryan Donato, in the Marquee Rookie subset.
Base parallels consist of Silver Border (1:3 packs), Gold Glossy (1:24 packs) and Retro Black Border (#/100). The numbered Retro Black Border editions are issued in Super Boxes that replace all base cards with the limited parallel.
2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Minis/ Inserts
In addition, the 77-card Minis set shrinks down top players at an overall rate of 1:4 packs. Base versions fall 1:6 packs, short prints average 1:26 packs, and the rare variations are pulled at a rate of 1:64 packs. Numbered to just 27 copies, the entire set offers Back parallels, as well.
Of course, 2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey provides additional inserts to track down. The distinct OPC Playing Cards set includes the full lineup from a standard deck. Card #2 to the King averages 1:5 packs while the short-printed Ace is quite rare at 1:120 packs.
2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Patches
A fan-favorite chase, 2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey also continues the manufactured patch cards with 100 new choices.
Themed sets include HOF Logo, Logo Updates and Trophy Winner patches at some pretty steep odds.
