Product Details

User Rating:

Following a fairly popular debut with the 2019-20 release, 2020-21 Upper Deck Allure Hockey continues the young NHL card brand for a new season.

Although the overall approach is similar, there are some changes from last year. Instead of offering one autograph and at least one relic, each Hobby box now contains one autograph along with two cards that can be either rare parallels and/or relics. Also, the pack size increases from six to eight cards.

The set arrives on ePack about a month after Hobby.
