User Reviews

  1. I like Ultimate hockey the most because the true rookie Is the rookie auto and Is also numbered /99, /299 In some cases the rookie Is not autographed and some years /399, /499 for the non autographed rookies. I do not like the patch autos because they are not game used patches so I just don’t see the point In having a non game used patch on a genuine rookie autographed hockey card In fact there are not many game used patch/jersey cards on the market that I know of besides SPGU CHL and UD Team Canada but those were XRC and I think Artifacts had the outdoors game cards one year but they weren’t RC
