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 >

As a hockey fan and collector, every year I sort of dread the summer. Don’t get me wrong, I do not mind the hot weather, but I miss my daily fix of NHL highlights and the regular release of new products. During the regular season, so many interesting boxes come out that it’s unreal: the standard Upper Deck, Artifacts, SPx, SPA, Ice, Superlative, Heroes and Prospect and the list goes on. In the summer months, there is a clear lack of releases.
Of course, by now we all have all heard that as well as OPC Premier and NHL More >
Well, the 2007-2008 campaign has come and gone, and it is now time to reflect on the highs and lows the NHL brought to us this season. An amazing fresh rookie crop, a venture in Europe and plenty of physical play, September was full of promises, but did the league live up to the expectations? To fully answer this question, it is necessary to step back in time and see what happened from the pre-season to Lidstrom raising the Cup first for the whole of Europe.
Before the season even began, the Penguins surprised no one in naming their new captain. More >
Descrition The 2007-08 Edition of UD Sweet Shot Hockey Edition is now out, and I must say that it is a rather nice looking product. This year, each tin includes five cards unlike last year where there were only four cards per tin. Of course, more often than not, the supplementary card will turn out to be a base card, but with a set of this quality, even base cards are exciting to pull. Each base card depicts the player in action against a coloured background which varies depending on the team he plays for. The design is further enhance More >
I came back to collecting a year and three months ago, and while it was quite obvious to me that I wanted to collect Patrick Roy, I had no idea of the sheer volume of cards of his out there and of the level of organization it would take to seriously collect him. In the beginning, it was quite easy, I had nothing and therefore needed everything that was out there, but after a few months of solid trading, the situation changed drastically.
I realized that looking at Photobuckets and trying to remember what I did or did not have just More >
Description The 2007-2008 edition of Ultimate Collection comprises only 60 base cards, followed by 60 Ultimate Rookies (#61-120), 36 Level 2 autographed Ultimate Rookies (#121-156) and six Level 1 autographed Ultimate Rookies (#157-162). As per previous years, there are also a lot of inserts and memorabilia included, and they will be detailed below in the checklist section. The cards are rather nice looking with a picture of the player in action with a different colour background depending which team the player belongs to. Down the left side of the card, there is a silver line including the Ultimate Collection, and More >
