Product Details

User Rating:

For high-end collectors, 2018-19 Upper Deck The Cup Hockey saves many of the best cards for last. The final entry in an NHL collecting season that inexplicably lasts around 15 months, The Cup supplies six premium cards per Hobby box tin, including two autographed patches. Of that total, at least one auto patch is from the '18-19 rookie class.

Similar to the 2017-18 product, UD's The Cup not only ends the card year but supplies the final installment of 2018-19 Exquisite Collection. Collectors can also find 2018-19 Splendor cards. The brand debuted in 2017-18 but did not have a 2018-19 product.

    Presales at around the $600 plus GST Cdn mark. Wowsers! We all like ‘The Cup’ but these prices are just getting ridiculous. As always, good luck to anyone who opens it.
