1 Trading Card Collector’s Guide
The perfect intro to the world of trading cards! It covers all of the basics for the new collector.
Collecting is an excellent way to teach the value of saving and keeping belongings in good condition, and it enriches the fan experience!
• Exciting Changes! We’ve made a couple of exciting changes to the Upper Deck Series to deliver an even more compelling collecting experience! The changes:
o An improved insert-to-base card ratio in each pack. Each pack now contains three (3) inserts, on average.
o The introduction of a stunning base set parallel, which also means more Young Guns® cards to chase!
• Series 1 sports the first 250 cards of the 2023-24 Upper Deck base set. Annually, the Upper Deck base set is the most widely-collected base set in hockey. The set includes 198 veteran cards, 49 Young Guns® cards (the most anticipated rookie cards of the season!) and three checklist cards. And as noted above, we’ve added a stunning base set parallel - Outburst Silver!
• Exclusive Offering! Every Starter Kit contains a Sophomore Sensations card you can’t find anywhere else!
• Fans and collectors alike will be blown away by the UD Portraits cards! The latest version of this classic insert portrays stars and rookies like you’ve never seen them before! No two portraits are the same.
• New Insert Sets! The latest edition of Series 1 sports an impressive lineup of new insert sets sure to please everyone, from the casual fan to the avid collector:
o 200’ x 85’: Each card in this set features a player (star veteran or top rookie) on a hockey rink backdrop - with both the player and the rink treated with Lite FX.
o OPC Glossy: Formerly a rookie-only Tin exclusive, we’re now adding these popular & attractive cards to most of our retail products. We’ve also expanded the checklist to include some star veterans. Keep an eye out for Gold parallels!
o Special Edition: Each card displays a current star veteran or top rookie on an elegant design.
o Star Surge: This set showcases rising stars.
o Star Zone: This set is comprised of many of the veteran stars in the game today.
o Stat Box Fillers: The checklist consists of current stars that routinely fill up the stat sheet. Keep an eye out for rare Gold parallels!
o Teacher’s Pet: Each card in this fun set sports a player “report card” and highlights the skill for which each player in the checklist is best known. In addition to the regular set, there is also a rare Gold parallel set.
• UD Canvas®, a longtime favorite among collectors, returns featuring a collection of the top stars in the game today along with the best of the Young Guns®. Series 1 contains the first 120 cards of this intra-series set.
• The popular Honor Roll® and Green Dazzlers inserts are also back! Both are intra-series sets and their Series 1 checklists are comprised of only star veterans (collect rookies in Series 2!). The Green Dazzlers cards are only available in the Starter Kit and select Blasters!
• Keep an eye out for Debut Dates cards commemorating the first game for 2022-23 and 2023-24 rookies!
Content, including the stated checklist #’ing, card #’ing and ratios, is subject to change without further notice.
