Product Details

User Rating:

Back to the ice following a quick timeout, 2021-22 Upper Deck Credentials Hockey returns for a second NHL season.

Although the brand technically skipped a year in between sets, the product offers a double set, of sorts, thanks to the 2020-21 update cards.

Hobby boxes average one hit that can either be an autograph or unsigned acetate insert.
