The fourth edition of the colorful NHL card brand, 2020-21 Upper Deck Synergy Hockey remains focused on parallels while offering a new batch of inserts.

Increasing from last year, autographs average four per inner case, and every box contains 10 inserts and eight parallels.

The set is found on ePack around a month after the Hobby release.

2020-21 Upper Deck Synergy Hockey Base / Rookies

Broken down into 40 veterans (#/21), 10 legends (#/11), 40 rookies (#/21) and 10 SP Rookie Portraits (#/11), the 100-card base set has considerable rarity in mind.

However, the parallels are much more common with each box averaging eight Red base cards. Compared to 2019-20, the lineup is smaller with only two base parallels.

For the inserts, the 2020-21 Upper Deck Synergy Hockey checklist features a few new choices. This includes Constant Threats (1:2) and Perennial All-Stars (1:12).

Roaring 20s (18 cards; 1:8) does not refer to the time period, but instead the age group of the young stars.
