2020-21 Upper Deck Artifacts Hockey Base / Parallels

The bulk of 2020-21 Upper Deck Artifacts Hockey is based around the main 220-card set. This includes 100 regular cards as well as limited Stars (#/699), Legends (#/599) and Rookies (#/999) subsets.

Each card adds Copper (#/299), Emerald (#/99), Autumn (#/75), Aqua (#/45) and Purple (#/20) parallels. The Black (#/5) edition is exclusive to Hobby. In addition, the subsets have Ruby (#/399) versions, but this was not noted for the regular set.

And if you know Artifacts, you know that is just the start. From there, each group is treated to a mix of relics, autographs and auto relics.
