2018/19 Upper Deck Series Two Hockey Hobby
While 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey is the update to the flagship NHL release, it does mix in a few new options to go with the standard choices.
Just as in 2018-19 UD Series 1 Hockey, collectors can look forward to six Young Guns rookie cards per Hobby box.
Once again, the 200-card base set is joined by 50 new names in the popular Young Guns subset, including Andrei Svechnikov and Casey Mittelstadt. These rookie cards combine to average 1:4 packs.
As for parallels, there are the normal Exclusives (#/100) and High Gloss (#/10) editions, plus the Hobby-only Clear Cut for base (1:90 packs) and Young Guns (1:360 packs) subjects.
Another intriguing aspect of the release, UD Canvas skates on with a new selection that includes some rare cards with a distinct finish. While the base Canvas cards average 1:8 packs, the Canvas Young Guns (1:48 packs), Team Canada Program of Excellence (1:192 packs) and Retired Stars (1:192 packs) cards are all tougher to uncover.
