Thanks to the Future Watch (FW) rookies and a large selection of on-card autographs, 2021-22 SP Authentic Hockey remains one of Upper Deck's most popular card brands.

Although the Hobby box format gets an update, switching from 18 packs of five cards to 10 packs of nine cards, the total card amount is unchanged. Each box still averages one Future Watch autograph and one additional autograph.
