User Rating:

2018-19 SP Authentic Hockey continues the collecting tradition of the popular Upper Deck NHL cards for another season.

Just like 2017-18, every Hobby box averages one Future Watch autograph and one additional autograph.

2018-19 SP Authentic Hockey Base / Inserts

Leading off 2018-19 SP Authentic Hockey, the 100-card base set is joined by Limited Red parallels at 1:6 packs. Many of the base subjects offer Limited Autographs (1:108 packs) and Limited Autograph Patch (#/50 or less) versions.

Insert choices include 1999-2000 Retro Draft Picks (1:26 packs), Authentic Moments (1:6 packs) and Rookie Year Milestones (1:7 packs). These combine to average seven per box and come as rare autographs, as well.

There are also flagship NHL updates that pick up from 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey. This includes Update Base (1:7 packs), Young Guns (1:19 packs) and All-Star Highlights (1:45 packs), plus limited Exclusives (#/100) and High Gloss (#/10) parallels. Collectors can expect a total of four update cards per box.

2018-19 SP Authentic Hockey Future Watch Rookies

Of course, the 2018-19 SP Authentic Hockey checklist is filled with first-year stars courtesy of the Future Watch line. The rookie selection consists of Future Watch (#/999), Autographed Future Watch (#/999), Future Watch Auto Patch (#/100 - 1 per inner case), and Future Watch Patch (#/10).

The new Future Watch Retro Rookie Auto Patch cards have only 25 copies.

    Looks really nice…ordering a master case for sure

    I’d prefer a 3.5 rating for 2 reasons. First, I’m still upset at getting only 2 autos per box. Most times the autos you get are almost worthless & reducing autos to 2 from 3 increases the odds of worthless autos.

    Second, the blank dummy inserts take up half the bulk of the box, destined for land fill. It increases the costs of packaging & shipping for no good reason. Surely UD has someone on staff who can figure this out and reduce the waste. I won’t be buying any cases this year.

    Was this pushed back until June 12th?

    Can anyone confirm

    Im in with David were it would be nice to go back to the 3 autos per box especially at a price like $130 per box. Future Watch is almost everyones favourite rookie card besides Young Guns but even those are in this product! I hope that Justin Holl, Nic Petan, and Trevor Moore have update cards!

    Yes. Looks like it’s delayed until June. My guess is that not enough players got their autos in to them in time.
