It took over four decades but the Capitals are finally NHL champs, a fact officially recognized on cardboard with the 2018 Upper Deck Washington Capitals Stanley Cup Champions set. Each box contains the main 30-card checklist.
The licensed Capitals Stanley Cup Champions boxes can be purchased for $29.99 at Fanatics.
2018 Upper Deck Washington Capitals Stanley Cup Set Details
The commemorative team set is very simple with a small base offering and a few parallels. Led by Alexander Ovechkin, each 2018 Upper Deck Washington Capitals Stanley Cup Champions box contains 25 player cards and five "memorable moments" cards from the regular season.
However, there is some rarity to be found, including Base Short Prints, Team Color parallels, numbered to 2,018 sets, and Silver parallels, which have just 18 copies.
Of course, these UD factory sets are just one of many Washington Capitals Stanley Cup Champions items available to fans.
Also, there is a special card set for the team that the Capitals beat for the Cup. Making great strides in their debut season, the 2017-18 Upper Deck Vegas Golden Knights Inaugural Season set honors the expansion team's quick success.
Release Date: July/August 2018
Product Configuration: 30 cards per factory set box
