Description Every new release of The Cup brings with it a huge buzz of excitement among collectors, and there is a reason for this: this set is just too impressive. Everything from the wrapping to the base cards is jaw dropping. The Cup comes in a fairly big box, inside of which you find a tin in which there is a smaller box, and once you open that one, you can finally get your hands on the cards. Wonderful cards I must say as all of the cards are of a high quality, very thick and come so very well packed More >

There is furthermore what could only be described as a scratching pattern around the player, the edges of which are reminiscent or ice. More >
Description: In the early 90s O-Pee-Chee Premier was both quite popular and quite valuable. However, after one outing in 1994-95 it disappeared only to be brought back in 2007-08 with an overhauled design and as a rather high end product. With OPC now being the property of Upper Deck, it is unsurprising to find out the set has all the glitz and shinny finish of a standard Upper Deck release.
Each base card features a picture of the player in action bordered by the slick OPC Premier pattern and includes the name, position and number of the player. As with most sets, More >
