2014-15 Fleer Showcase Hockey preview

Last year Upper Deck revived the Fleer Showcase brand and brought back some of the sets and inserts that were synonymous with the Fleer brand. Fleer Showcase returns for the 2014-15 NHL season with an updated look and fresh crop of rookies.

2014-15 Fleer Showcase Hockey has a base set of 100 regular cards. Parallel versions come with a memorabilia relic with Red Glow Jersey (#’d to 36), White Hot Patch Tier 1 (#’d to 18) and White Hot Patch Tier 2 (#’d to 9).


Upper Deck has promised at least one Hot Prospects Autograph Patch card numbered to 375 or less per box from one of 60 prospects. Tier 1 versions are numbered to 375 with Tier 2 numbered to 175. Red Glow parallels for both tiers come with a piece of glove or jersey fight strap (Tier 1 #’d to 27, Tier 2 #’d to 18). White Hot jumbo patch parallels are numbered to only three.

Hot Prospect Autograph cards come numbered to 149 with Red Glow parallels numbered to 29 and White Hot numbered to nine.

One of the retro elements to the set is the Flair cards that are available in Row 0, 1 and 2 versions. Flair Row 2 cards are easier to find (1:9 packs) with Row 0 and 1 a little tougher (1:25 packs). All three tiers have Blue Ice (#’d to 250) and Blue Ice Masterpiece (#’d 1/1) parallels plus jersey and patch versions. Look for Row 0 Rookie Auto Patch cards numbered to to 49.


Metal Universe insert cards replicate the 1998-99 design and showcase 42 players, including 21 rookies. There are three levels of PMG parallels: Red (#’d to 100), Blue (#’d  to 25) and Green (#’d to 10).


2014-15 Fleer Showcase has a 50-card set of SkyBox Premium inserts. The 20 SkyBox Premium rookie cards are numbered to 299 while the 30 veterans are less scarce with 499 copies. All 50 cards have Star Rubies (#’d to 50 and Sparkling Diamonds (#’d to 5) parallels.

Two sets of die-cut inserts also conger up retro feelings with Wave of the Future rookie cards and Hot Gloves goalie cards.
