Our top secret industry spy has got the inside look for all 2012/13 Upper Deck Hockey products and it looks as if it will be a good year for hockey cards.
***2011/12 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection
Sure, it is still a 2011/12 product but it will be your last chance to get new Rookie Autographs of the strong draft class that includes Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog, Cody Hodgson, Adam Henrique, Sean Couturier and Matt Read.
Sources tell us Upper Deck has already sold out of this product and in fact, it’s oversold. Locking up your order for Ultimate Collection soon would be a wise decision.
***2012/13 Upper Deck O-Pee-Chee
We had the chance to get an up close look at the sweet manufactured patches that will be inserted into the product and they are simply amazing. We were also told they will be rare, around (4) per case so set chasers will be chomping at the bit to get their hands on them. Remember the Goodwin Animal Kingdom patches? Well we know for a fact that these patches are just as good if not better!!
This is an absolute sleeper product and once we seen the manufactured patches we mentioned above – WE DOUBLED OUR ORDER!!!!
The product is due mid-August and cases will disappear quickly.
***2012/13 Upper Deck Artifacts
Due in early October, Artifacts is as strong as ever. It remains until this day one of the best investments in terms of unopened boxes & cases.
Last year’s Artifacts started off in the mid $80 range and is currently at $150. Show me a mutual fund that can give you that type of return. Who needs the stock market – Invest in Cardboard!!!
***2012/13 Upper Deck Series 1
Due in mid-November, the company regular and fan favorite is back and will look as if it will continue the Young Guns Rookie set, splitting up the rookie class in both Series 1 and Series 2 which is due in late February. We only hope that rookies are distributed evenly like in 2010/11 when Upper Deck waited to put Tyler Seguin in with Series 2.
***2012/13 Upper Deck SP Game Used & SPx
After a sub-par reception in 2011/12 with both of these products, we know that product development is working some serious overtime to totally revamp both products and bring them back to the prominence they so rightfully deserve.
***2012/13 Upper Deck Black Diamond
A company standard will be back with the Upper Deck Ice bonus packs again this year.
***Hockey Card Day
Last but certainly not least, Upper Deck will be having its National Hockey Card day in both America (February 16th) and Canada (February 9th) in 2013. So make sure you visit your local card shop to get in on the action.
2011/12 Upper Deck The Cup Hockey is going to be AMAZING!!! BE sure to keep checking in to dacardworld.com to sign up for pre-sale, which will be happening very soon.
There you have it – An exclusive top secret look at what is coming down the pipe from Upper Deck this fall. Just remember, this is a secret. Do not tell anybody!!!
