Looks good, needs to be the right price. This seems like a hit or miss product.

Another overpriced product (kind of obvious) with variation after variation. Sad really.

I'm fairly certain this is going to be around the $69.99-$74.99 for a product with hard-signed rookie autos.... Curious to see what would have been a 'reasonable' price for this? It's on par with Chrome Baseball/Football which are uber-popular,

Looks nice, though way too many parallels IMHO (maybe I'm a minority on that view).

I generally HATE parallels. This is one of the few sets where I think it could work though. Similar to how everyone chases "color" in Chrome Baseball & Football.

Well I think it is overkill in Football also (Topps Chrome etc...), but I may be a minority on that. To me 2-3 parallels of same card is my max personally, after that it is a bit much IMHO. Granted I think the Chrome Football is more than 8 different parallels (last time I looked anyway there was Retail and Hobby exclusive stuff). But with that being said I do miss the Topps Chrome/Finest Hockey kind of cards from the old days, and this is similar (hopefully won't have condition issues or stick as bad as the days of old ones did when sitting in a box.

I honestly REALLY like these parallels. Each are unique from each other and I think being able to make a rainbow would be awesome. Definitely going to try and chase rainbows for the Canucks in this set.
Shame the Black Ice are out of 25... That would've been a set I'd like to put together if the print run was more manageable. Still going to chase them though!

I totally agree with urbanmonk. The more variations there are the less value each of those variations can be considered. How much would you pay for a Connor Mcdavid rc/100 copies when there are 20 versions of a McDavid rc/75 copies, 20 versions of a McDavid rc/50 copies, 20 versions of a McDavid rc/25 copies etc
This is an example of poor management and planning skills. Unless Ud is trying to kill the hobby like they did in the 90s this is just stupidity. It will also reduce the value of all the artifacts rookies and black diamond rookies and all the variants for those as well.
They also have similar plans for
UD Masterpiece hockey
Ud Premier Hockey
UD ultimate Hockey

Before this season ends you will be able to have over 100 different rookie cards of a player with less then 100 copies of each . How much are you going to pay for those. Exactly you won't and nobody else will either.

Well this statement is just wrong. Ultimate has virtually no parallels at all, Premier seems to be minimal as well......

Well yes but in baseball/football they do pay up for all those variations....

Hockey is a different market though so well see what happens.

Too bad they didn't get horvat and pastranek signed..

Does anyone find there is a bend in these cards, or was it just maybe the particular box I opened?

bluehatdude16 - It's the chrome technology, happens with other sports also.
