2021-22 Upper Deck Allure Hockey Rides the Rainbow


Mr. Roy G. Biv has a home in 2011-22 Upper Deck Allure Hockey. As one would expect, the chrome-based release has a traditional parallel rainbow for much of its checklist. However, in one part of the set, there’s also an actual ROYGBIV rainbow blend spanning several cards that travels from red all the way through to violet.

Hobby boxes have an eclectic mix of cards including one autograph, at least four inserts and an average of one parallel per pack.

Autographs and Additional Inserts

2021-22 Upper Deck Allure Hockey has a fairly extensive lineup of bold inserts.

The start with Quartz, which stand out thanks to their die-cut format. Veterans are 1:12 hobby packs while Quartz Rookies are 1:18. Not only do these have one-of-one Golden Treasures parallels, but select cards have Autographs (1:300 packs, Rookies – 1:600) and Blue Autographs (/10).

Rainbow inserts are home to the ROYGBIV influence. Each of these cards transitions between two colors. Collectors who land the five different cards of a player and put them together side-by-side will see the full rainbow spectrum. Red-Orange are the most common at 1:4 hobby packs. Others include Orange-Yellow (1:12 packs), Yellow-Green (1:20 packs), Green-Blue (/299), Blue-Purple (/199).
