2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey Checklist, Team Set Lists — The Ultimate Guide
2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey cards mark the eighth installment of the popular promotional set. Available at participating restaurants across Canada beginning Monday, October 3, the checklist brings a lot of familiar elements as well as some new ones.
Packs continue to cost $1 each with the purchase of most drinks or $1.99 on their own.
2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey Checklist Overview
At 120 cards, the checklist is a big one for a food issue release. However, it is down slightly from the 125 in the 2021-22 set. The main focus is on top stars with a few young players mixed in. Tim Horton leads off the base set once again.
The usual suspects like Connor McDavid, Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby are also on the 2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey checklist. There are no Rookie Cards, though, which is typical for the release.
Cards continue to be done in foil with embossed highlights. This has been the case since the first promotion in 2015-16.
Backs have a headshot along with player vitals and limited stats.
It’s also worth noting that stats on the back only go up to the 2020-21 season. This is because of the tight production schedule required to ensure the set releases on time. The card industry is still dealing with some supply chain issues and with the large production run of this set, it required more time to print and a cut-off date before the 2021-22 regular season came to a close.
2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey Inserts
2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey cards packs have seven different insert sets available in them.
Red Die-Cuts return. The largest of these sets, there are 40 cards with one landing every four packs. While these have a similar layout as the base set other than the rounded corners and red background, there are some different players here.
Flow of Time is the toughest of the regular inserts, falling 1:24 packs. Done on lenticular stock to make them look 3-D, they show two photos of the featured player — one from early in their career and another more recent one.
Gold Etchings (1:8 packs) and Superstar Showcase (1:6 packs) box use intricate gold foil to highlight their designs. Both have 18 cards.
Hockey Triumphs might not have cutting-edge photography, but they do have standout photos of big moments and celebrations from the past couple of seasons.
Other insert sets on the 2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey card checklist include InMotion Phenoms (18 cards, 1:12 packs) and Spectrum Standouts (18 cards, 1:9 packs).
Top Draft Choice returns as a redemption. In the past these have been for a card of the first overall pick in the NHL Draft. There’s also a special Wayne Gretzky card. Odds on each of these is 1:12,000 packs.
Autographs and Memorabilia Cards
Hits are also available in 2022-23 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Hockey, but only as redemptions. NHL Signatures has 15 different players, which are a mix of top superstars and young players. Landing 1:7,200 packs, there are a total of 2,623 available. Print runs for specific cards are not known.
NHL Jersey Relic Signatures add a swatch to the mix. Just 150 are available across the entire production run. Odds are 1:125,867 packs. The six-card checklist includes Connor McDavid, Jonathan Toews and Elias Pettersson.
