Every year, Upper Deck releases what has come to be the staples sets for hockey collectors, their self-titles Series 1 and Series 2 product. As the NHL season nears its midway point, UD is getting ready to unleash Series 2 on the market on 15th February 2011. For avid rookie collectors, this is their chance to finish their Young Gun sets and for everyone who was drawn in by the nostalgia of the 20th Anniversay inserts in Series 1, there is more of the same coming. This time around, you can look for Young Guns 20th Anniversary parallels but also for Canadian World Juniors ones. As per usual with Series 2, you can also chase the popular rookie materials featuring the hobby’s biggest new names; Taylor Hall, Tyler Seguin, P.K. Subban and many more. From a pricing standpoint, this is a reasonable release with a price tag of around $60 the release will also offer the usual Victory rookies inserts. I’m already looking forward to mid-February to see what comes out of the numerous boxes which will no doubt be busted on sportscardforum.com.

Configuration:  24 packs per box. 8 cards per pack.
The prefect compliment to another stellar UD1 release, Upper Deck Series 2 offers more great Young Guns & 20th Anniversary variations -including its own Young Guns, Retired Stars and Canadian World Juniors -all of which are virtually guaranteed to be big hits! Throw in Rookie Materials and added phenoms in the Victory Update cards and UD2 is locked & loaded!
