2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey Cards – Full Young Guns Checklist


Product Details

User Rating:

While 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey is the update to the flagship NHL release, it does mix in a few new options to go with the standard choices.

Just as in 2018-19 UD Series 1 Hockey, collectors can look forward to six Young Guns rookie cards per Hobby box.

2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey Base / Young Guns

Because the flagship brand is a collecting institution, the main set in 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey is a bit more important to many NHL fans. Once again, the 200-card base set is joined by 50 new names in the popular Young Guns subset, including Andrei Svechnikov and Casey Mittelstadt. These rookie cards combine to average 1:4 packs.

As for parallels, there are the normal Exclusives (#/100) and High Gloss (#/10) editions, plus the Hobby-only Clear Cut for base (1:90 packs) and Young Guns (1:360 packs) subjects.

Another intriguing aspect of the release, UD Canvas skates on with a new selection that includes some rare cards with a distinct finish. While the base Canvas cards average 1:8 packs, the Canvas Young Guns (1:48 packs), Team Canada Program of Excellence (1:192 packs) and Retired Stars (1:192 packs) cards are all tougher to uncover.

2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey Inserts

The 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey checklist also incorporates a variety of inserts. The UD Portraits lineup is all rookies this time, with each player in the 50-card set averaging 1:6 packs. These have Gold (#/99) and Platinum Blue (#/25) parallels, as well.

Utilizing die-cut acetate stock, Rookie Breakouts (#/100) cards are exclusive to Hobby boxes.

Back in action, the bright UD Fluorescence has an updated design and comes in Gold (#/150), Blue (#/50), Green (#/15), and Magenta (#/5) versions.

And the rarest inserts are supplied by Day with the Cup (1:1,000 packs) and Tricksters (1:463 packs).

Those shopping at retail can find Rookie Commence and oversized NHL Star cards (3 1/2" x 5") exclusively in tins. These each average one per tin.

2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Autographs / Relics

Still known more for the set collecting side of things, 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey does contain a few hits to chase. Among the choices is the all-new Rookie Photoshoot Flashback Materials (1:288 packs), which displays images from the player's rookie year. The Patch parallel caps the print run at 15 copies.

2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey

The exclusive Rookie Materials cards come in base (1:58 packs) and Patch (#/25), while collectors can find a new crop of stars in the 1,000 Point Club Jerseys (1:864 packs) and 1,000 Point Club Autos (#/10) sets.

2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey

Phil Esposito is the UD Canvas Autograph (#/16) subject this time.

2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Update

Because it is an early-season release, many key players don't make into 2018-19 OPC, but the 2018-19 O-Pee-Chee Update insert takes care of that with base (1:24 packs) and Rookies (1:6 packs) in several parallels.

User Reviews

  1. While 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey is the update to the flagship NHL release,

    How can series 2 be the update series when they release update cards in the SP set.

  2. Direct base numbering carryover from Series 1 to Series 2 is the definition of an update. Otherwise, the set would have its own numbering. Upper Deck puts updates in many of their releases.
