First look: 2010-11 O-Pee-Chee Hockey
October 11, 2010, 6:41 pm



By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

Upper Deck recently released information on its latest upcoming NHL product, and 2010-11 O-Pee-Chee Hockey is set to arrive in mid-December with a feel and a product that should appeal to oldschool fans as well as set collectors.

With a price-point of under $50 a box, the 600-card O-Pee-Chee checklist will feature retro parallels of all base cards, which are one per pack.

But there are also variations of the variations. The retro cards have rainbow foil and black rainbow foil parallels. There is also one In-Action laminated card per box.

The set doesnít include just todayís stars of Sidney Crosby or Patrick Kane. Long-time greats and fan favorites such as Wayne Gretzky and Steve Yzerman are also included.

Jersey and signature cards will be hard to come by. There are just three quad jersey cards and three autos per 12-box case. Thirty six packs come in each box with six cards per pack.

Many inserts are in display in this set including the All-Rookie Team, Season Highlights, Stat Kings, Team Leaders, Trophy Winners and NHL Winter Classic. Collectors should get an average of nine inserts per box.

Among the highlights include, a Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Joe Mullen and Evgeni Malkin quad jersey, Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo and Carey Price quad jersey and autos from Crosby, Gretzky and more.

I hate the quad jerseys, those disconnected heads are just creepy and hideous. Count me out on this one...

ok so im looking forward to seeing what the retro cards look like . it should be out tomorrow. i think the base design is ok , the retro cards will be the deciding factor with me on this. im guessing ud is coming up with there own "retro" design . i dont think they can use the topps designs anymore............ last years was ugly

this product is generally a winner, just a lot of work and you need to able to pick up cards to finish sets.

That it is...However, usually I can make 1 master set out of a case with all the RC and inserts (not parallels) and 2-3 more sets. Those along pay for over half the case on average. Then you have the extra inserts, parallels, rc, and autos and game used to go...It is work, but if you get a good auto or quad you'll be fine.

It's a set collector's paradise.

But I don't know, I'm not thrilled about it.

Count me in as a 'Maybe'

just seen a bunch of retros on ebay , they do look pretty cool
they actually look more like a insert rather then a base card .
