RGM81 - great post and a great guide.
This does go to show though that parallels don't do any justice to the hobby. What goes into boxes and gets packaged out as product should be clear by whomever owns it. It's unfortunate that collectors need to be members on a message board to gain clarity.
I don't mind parallels... the retro variations were ingenious by UD and an ode to OPC. But a whole slew of indistinguishable parallels is just a cheap way of inserting "collectibility" into a product. By all means, let there be a "parallel lovers product" and let that product be Artifacts or Black Diamond, but I don't think it's necessary to have more than one parallel in every product.

geschrocks33 - that is exactly what I was referring to.
I am still have a hard time telling the metal and the metal x apart. Eight of the cards in the box have a higher gloss shine than the rest. Of these eight one is very different in that the border has diagonal lines instead of the dots or squares. So confusing.
I wish that Upper Deck would put clarifying pictures on their website.

Yeah I just want one Metal X version, and the other versions, and I consider that my rainbow lol, I don't care about more versions. I'm having enough of a fun time chasing down Artifacts Parallels for my other PC people

For everyones info the red border cards are the cards listed on the UD site as the "OPC Update Regular Cards".

Looks very confusing........... i'm getting my first box this week, hope to help clarify things, or maybe bring more confusion........ Bought a couple of packs last week-end to see and i'm now totally confused ! What's the difference between golds, metal and metal X ? If i get it right, the metal are look-alike versions of the golds, except that there is a little silver edge around the player and team logo. And the metal X have the same silver edges and a plain mirror-like background. Picked also what i thing is a gold hi-number card, not stated as being part of this release ! Am-i right, or totally off the track ? Help !
