2018-19 Upper Deck Engrained Hockey Cards
Debuting with NHL card collectors, 2018-19 Upper Deck Engrained Hockey is built around engravings, wood designs and hockey sticks.
Each Hobby box averages one Signature Shots autograph, two additional hits that can be autographs or relics, and one insert or base parallel.
2018-19 Upper Deck Engrained Hockey Base / Inserts
Using a "faux wood" style, the 100-card base set in 2018-19 Upper Deck Engrained Hockey features 31 stars, 19 legends and 50 rookies. Every card is numbered to 299 and there are also Black parallels that are limited to 49 copies.
The base set also works in numbered Premium Memorabilia and Premium Memorabilia Autograph editions. The Premium Autograph cards cover select stars (1:8 packs), legends (1:12 packs) and rookies (1:3 packs) from the base set.
Synthesis inserts combine with the base Black parallels to average one per box. Synthesis cards also come in a rare Grip variant numbered to 50 copies.
2018-19 Upper Deck Engrained Hockey Autographs / Relics
At one per box, the main autograph set in 2018-19 Upper Deck Engrained is Signature Shots. Walking the line between a sticker signature and hard-signed, the Signature Shots and Rookie Signature Shots cards contain a trapped autograph. Going with the hockey stick approach, these are actually signed on a piece of varnished wood or carbon fiber.
