User Rating:

An annual NHL favorite, 2020-21 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey combines the seasoned OPC brand with chromium stock.

While many collectors certainly appreciate the added shine, another key selling point for OPC Platinum is the hard-signed content. Each Hobby box contains one autograph.

The ePack release arrives around one month after Hobby.

User Reviews

  1. Cards look really nice this year, but what are the chances of getting any value when UD inflates the product with all these numbered parallells? Still only two #’d base parallells per box, and now very slim chances of hitting a low numbered one.

  2. Based on every product that UD has put out in 20-21 I’m not holding my breath for any real value to this product. So far it has been nothing but overpriced damage filled product/cards and with the ‘platinum’ finish I fear that trend will continue.

  3. Curious to see what UD charges this year. I’ve bought and collected this product every year because of the look of it, hard signed autos, and its somewhat affordable. I fully expect them to gouge the customer since demand is up during the pandemic.
