    Post Upper Deck announces plans for NHL rookie redemptions

    http://www.beckett.com/news/2013/02/...e-redemptions/

    The company will begin redeeming its NHL rookie redemptions found in 2012-13 Upper Deck Series 1 and 2012-13 Artifacts starting in July, the earliest card companies can produce cards of this season’s newest players.

    When the NHLPA instituted a restriction on Rookie Cards for this season, many collectors wondered what would happen to the rookie redemptions they stockpiled. Many bought Edmonton Oilers redemptions out of Artifacts in hopes it would be 2012 No. 1 draft pick Nail Yakupov.

    Unfortunately, we still don’t know who will be on the cards.

    “We will be announcing specific players for the rookie redemption cards in 2012-13 NHL Artifacts and 2012-13 NHL Upper Deck Series One in coming months,” the company wrote on its blog.

    These redemptions could include any rookies from this season, including late-season call-ups.

    Upper Deck released this information on the heels of a previous announcement where it canceled three products for this season. Panini America canceled most of its 2012-13 schedule as well.

    So are these going to end up being the only true RCs out there for these guys?
    "He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

    Or will they be considered XRCs like some of the products 10 years ago?

    I would doubt they'd used up 45 players rookie cards (or however many artifacts redemptions there are) with one product when there's a large bounty to be made next season with two season's of rookie cards in their products. They'll have to be xRCs like BAP used to do, which obviously will affect their respective values and make their "rookie redemptions" invalid/false.

    The UD S1 redemptions were never meant to be true RCs though.

    ..Or they just avoid using the high-end players and all the redemptions are for secondary rookies *gag*.

    I know one guy who does the entire Artifacts set each and every year and, at great expense, he has already accumulated most of the 12/13 Redemption cards. He would blow a gasket if Upper Deck were to do that.
