Collectors can find one of these cards in every box, on average.



The regular version of these "Autographed Prospect Patch" cards are numbered to just 399 and include such impact rookies as Sam Gagner (Oilers), Brandon Dubinsky (Rangers), T.J. Hensick (Avalanche) and Nick Foligno (Senators). The most popular rookies appear in a short-printed subset numbered to just 199 in a move that will enhance the card values and collectibility.
