User Rating:

A haven for memorabilia cards, 2022-23 Upper Deck Artifacts Hockey maintains the hit formula that yields three per Hobby box. Hits can be autographs, relics or tech inserts.

While the Rookie Redemption line is another focal point, the 2021-22 edition arrived too late to feature them, instead issuing live rookie cards. However, the rookie IOU's are back for '22-23.
