Young Guns. Enough said. If that doesn't give you enough reason to want to open a box of Upper Deck hockey, then what is?
Not only does the Young Guns grab my attention, but the photography that Upper Deck strives by is simply amazing. Look at some of these base cards. If only more companies paid this much attention to photography detail.

Here are the Young Guns I pulled. There is a good mix of players some of whom are becoming stars, some who may become stars later on. That's the fun of pulling Young Guns. Not to mention with these falling 1:4 packs, it drives the value up on them as well.
I even pulled a Young Gun Exclusive parallel numbered to 100
The 2000's Hockey Heroes that fall 1:12.5 packs
Canvas Cards. Love these. The regular players fall 1:7 while the Young Gun I pulled fell 1:48
Here are the Shining Stars you will find 4 of per game. A fun foil insert with a nice design.
However, the Gold Rainbow parallel of Shining Stars if much more impressive to look at. My picture doesn't do it justice.
And finally, my two Game Jersey cards. Not bad too shabby players.
Every year this product is released, puck fans are all over it. After opening my first hobby box, I usually do retail packs, I can see why.
