2017-18 Upper Deck Series 1 hockey arrived on Wednesday. One of the most popular annual releases, the NHL’s flagship brand of hockey cards once again offers a 200-card base set with the ever-popular Young Guns insert set of 50 still in the driver’s seat. A full checklist is at the bottom of this story.
Each box has 24 packs of eight cards with 12 boxes per case. Box prices are about $60 online.
Both the base set and Young Guns have High Gloss parallels numbered to 10. The Young Guns will again have Canvas parallels (one in every two boxes, on average).
Each box will average six Young Guns, four non-Young Guns Upper Deck Canvas cards, four Upper Deck Portraits, three Shining Stars (printed on foil board), one Royal Blue parallel and four Centennial Standouts.
Case hits include Clear Cut (1 per 72 packs), Canvas Young Guns, Signature Sensations, Game Jerseys (six in each case) and Clear Cut (two in each case).
Among the more elusive hits: Day With The Cup and Ceremonial Puck drop cards, falling 1 in 2000 packs. Autographed versions are one in every 16,000 packs.
