2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey CardsBrand: Trilogy
Three's not a crowd with 2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey. The annual NHL release favors trios across the set, including an average of three hits per Hobby box. That box total should offer at least one autograph.
Similar to the 2017-18 set, the brand again works in autographed acetate and puck-based designs.
2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey Base / Parallels
Veteran players get the first crack at the 2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey checklist via the 50-card base set. These add Blue Rainbow (#/799) and Red Rainbow (#/499) parallels, as well.
There are also memorabilia versions, including numbered Green Jersey Relics and Black Premium Material Relics, which are based on the player's stats.
2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey Rookies
The main rookie lineup in 2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey highlights 29 top prospects in three different editions under the Rookie Premieres banner. The Common Rookies (Level 1) subset has 999 copies and is the most plentiful option. There are also Uncommon Autograph Rookies (Level 2) cards split across Tier 1 (#/399), Tier 2 (#/249) and Tier 3 (#/149).
The Rare Autograph Rookies (Level 3) cards are the most elusive at 49 copies. There is also the Triple Rookie Autograph trio signature with just 25 copies. Each rookie card has a numbered Black parallel.
Although the Green parallel is not signed, it adds memorabilia in Common Rookies Jersey (Level 1 - #/599), Uncommon Rookies Patch (Level 2 - #/49), and Rare Rookies Tag (Level 3 - #/5).
Another wave of first-year talent is seen in the 2003-04 Retro Rookies 15th Anniversary set. These look back to the previous design but feature the '18-19 rookie class. Versions include a base insert (#/599) and base Black (#/25) parallel, plus Jersey (#/399), Autograph (#/99), Auto Patch (#/15), and Black Autograph (#/3) editions.
2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey Autographs
The remaining autographs in the 2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey checklist are mostly split between signed acetate and autographed pucks. The Signature Pucks (1:18 packs) line comes in several versions, including Team Logo (#/19) and NHL Shield Logo (#/3).
Each falling at 1:560 packs, the selection also offers short-printed All-Star Signature Pucks, Hall of Fame Signature Pucks, Stanley Cup Championship Signature Pucks, and Trophy Winners Signature Pucks. Hand-numbered Logo parallels for each set are limited to 10 copies or less.
Using autographed plexiglass substrate, the Ice Scripts (1:85 packs) and Personal Scripts (1:800 packs) inserts are both back. Another choice is the Scripted Hall of Fame Plaques set that is hand-numbered to 25, while the new Auto Focus (1:800 packs) is also tough to uncover.
Numbered Tryptich Autos finish out the signed cards.
2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey Relics
Other possible hits in 2018-19 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey come from the Tryptich Jersey Relics insert for Rookies & Stars (#/99) or Legends (#/49). The Premium Series carries varied numbering.
More memorabilia is on display on the numbered Honorary Triple Swatches and Triple Relics cards.
