Upper Deck and collecting hockey cards.
As you all know, I am a big Upper Deck fan but with recent lost licenses from the CLC along with the other hard to deal with past losses NFL, NBA and MLB, I fear the once hobby giant is losing ground in the hobby with only an NHL license.
I will say I do collect hockey, but it's mainly third on my collecting list. Not sure where it lands on yours. However, when I do collect it, I mainly do UD Series 1 and 2. I like the layout of the product. No focus on hits, nice looking base set, fun inserts with things like the Canvas. However it's these that really do me in.....
Can't wait to try and pull a McDavid. And I know trying to pack pull one will be my best shot as you will probably have to pour out a ton to buy one. Not to mention, pack busting makes it more fun and the chase!
The product mocks a 90's product. 1:4 rookies cards, not an insert in every pack, rare autographs, and tough to find top notch jersey card players.
My question to you is, how many of you have given their hockey cards a try for your Upper Deck fix with no other newer Upper Deck options on the market for the main 4 sports? I am talking us die hard NFL, NBA, MLB or college collectors. Not ones who have already been collecting hockey. How many of you are trying it now? And for those of you who do collect already, I wanna know your thoughts on Series 1 and how excited you are.
Many questions to answer and I look forward to your responses.
