Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Product: 2016-17 Upper Deck Premier Hockey
Just when I had given up on hockey, I see a product like this and it sucked me right back in again.
I have to be honest, I was never a hockey fan until Panini dropped Prime Hockey on us. I believe Karvin Cheung, now with GTS, was the mastermind behind the product. It was the patches. The patches sold me on hockey.
Being in Omaha, I knew a few Red Wings, Senators, Penguins, and Blackhawks fans. Of those, the Blackhawks drew me in and it was nice knowing that should I choose, I could actually get to see them play live.
Thus began my knowledge search on the game, the history of the franchise and the birth of a new hockey fan.
This set, got me excited by including some of the greatest patches I have seen. I would put it on par with what I had seen from The Cup in previous years.
The price point, whoa, a bit up there, but the cards are beautiful and I was not disappointed.
I hope you enjoy watching the video and when you can, pop a tin of this stuff, it is a good rip.
