The fifth and final box I decided to break from my Upper Deck Random Acts Of Kindness Package was the 2020/21 Upper Deck NHL Star Rookies Hockey Box Set.

2020/21 Upper Deck SP Game Used Edition Hockey Hobby Box Break

The first box I decided to break from my Upper Deck Random Acts Of Kindness Package was a box of 2020/21 Upper Deck SP Game Used Edition Hockey.

Inside each box there is (1) pack of (6) cards. You should find (4) hits per box. Turns out the base cards are serial numbered to the player’s jersey number. This actually makes some of the base cards rarer than the parallels.

The Sedin base, and Duchene Banner Relic look really cool.

Here is what I pulled:

Auto:

  • Kieffer Bellows Authentic Rookies Base Blue Auto

Relics:

  • John Klingberg Base Silver Jersey Relic

Topps Surprises Hockey Fans With Brett Hull Signed Stickers

Topps left the NHL licensed card business in 2004.  In 2017 they jumped back in with their Topps NHL SKATE digital trading card app.  In 2019 Topps took things a step further acquiring a license to produce NHL stickers.

Leading up to the 2020 NHL All-Star Game in St. Louis, hockey fans enjoyed the events at the NHL Fan Fair.  One of the biggest moments took place at the Topps booth when St. Louis Blues legend, and 2009 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Brett Hull arrived.  Topps printed stickers which resemble Brett Hull’s 1988-89 Topps #66 rookie card.  Fans were quite eager to snatch the stickers up, and have him sign them.

They might not be “cards”, but these stickers look darn good.  Topps is as close as possible to making NHL licensed cards as they can get.  Upper Deck currently has an exclusive NHL license to make cards.
