First look: 2012-13 SP Authentic hockey cards

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Hockey Editor

Collectors will get more than just the title cards in SP Authentic hockey this season.

When Upper Deck canceled a number of its hockey products earlier this year, the company didn’t want to do away with many of the cards it already worked on. It decided to insert the items from SPx and Upper Deck Series 2 as content in 2012-13 SP Authentic.

SPA is scheduled to come in June with three autographs in every box, on average.

The autos can come from a number of subsets such as Future Watch, Signs of the Times, Team Canada Moments and more.

If looking for cards from the now-canceled products, collectors can find SPx bonus packs, which could include Rookie Cards and hits from many of the top players this season. UD is also adding Upper Deck Update, which would have normally been found in Series 2. These cards will feature traded players, free agents and stars who didn’t get in Series 1.

It seems as though UD is attempting to make SPA timeless considering the unusual circumstances. One insert that showcases this idea is the Authentic Moment Autographs. These cards will feature moments throughout a player’s career with autograph versions signed in a gold paint pen.

Other highlights include:
- Team Canada Moments – includes multi-player and autographed variations
- 94-95 SP Retro with die-cut autograph versions
- UD Exclusives
- MVP Rookie updates

Each box will contain 24 packs with five cards in each pack.

These look incredible. I have been watching my purchases this year but I may have to break the bank on this one. If there is a triple auto of the Taveras,-Subban-Eberle that looks like a mission waiting to happen.

i have always like this product so i will probably buy 1 or 2 boxes and then look to purchase single cards to finish the set.
