“Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey, the brand known throughout the industry, is the must have card product each year,” said Josh Zusman, Hockey Brand Manager for Upper Deck. “Series 1 Hockey offers a unique collecting experience to veteran and novice hockey collectors alike. This is a great set for collectors to see the next wave of fan favorites with 49 new stars who will have their rookie cards in the Young Guns set.”
The 250-card regular set of UD Series 1 Hockey includes 200 cards featuring the top players in the game and is complemented by the athletes making their on-ice debuts. Each card in the regular set will be replicated in two low-numbered parallel inserts. Once again, the top marksmen on skates will be showcasing their talents in Shootout Artists, one of four superstar inserts which highlights key attributes these players bring to the ice each night. The cards include statistics and the date the player scored his influential goal.
Collectors will take notice when they rip open packs and grab one of the Game Jersey or Game Jersey Patch cards. The patch cards are numbered to just 15 – thus making these cards a must have for any serious collector.
Appreciation for hockey is passed down from father to sons, the same goes for players of different eras that play with a similar style. Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey will capture these great players in these fantastic looking insert sets: NHL Generations Duals (numbered to 100), NHL Generations Triples (numbered to 25), NHL Generations Dual Patches (numbered to 10) and NHL Generations Triple Patches (numbered to 5).
