2018-19 Ultimate Collection Hockey lets collectors chase Upper Deck hits one pack at a time. Each four-card pack contains a rookie autograph, two additional hits, and a base card or Ultimate Introductions insert.

The premium NHL set has now gone several years, including 2017-18, under the same one-pack-per-box format.
