2016-17 O-Pee-Chee Hockey is taking a page from past years with some surprise inserts. 2016-17 O-Pee-Chee Glo-Pee-Chee play off the brand name to deliver some short prints that come alive when the lights go out.
Consisting primarily of current players, details on the set are still a little sketchy. As with other unannounced inserts from Upper Deck, they’re not saying much. Barring a skip-number configuration, the Glo-Pee-Chee checklist looks to top 25 cards.
Insertion rates have not been announced either.
The design of the cards fit right in with 2016-17 O-Pee-Chee‘s retro feel. Black borders give way to a bright yellow background and a nameplate that’s reminiscent of a lit up marquee.
Of course, there’s more to the name than just the word play. Parts of the cards do glow. For the best results, hold it up to a light for a few seconds before making it dark and getting the full effect.
