By Andrew Tolentino | Hockey Editor

Leaking more details about its upcoming lineup, Upper Deck recently divulged details about 2011-12 SPx Hockey.

Collectors will have to wait until late January – early February to break the updated brand, but the specs and highlights should suffice for now.
Before the box odds, there are a few new, and re-tweaked features to note:

  • New Shadow Box Programme of Excellence cards
  • Team Canada Superstars
  • Dual-swatch memorabilia cards
  • Ice / Ice Premieres cards
  • Spectrum base parallels, now numbered to 15 with patches

Boxes come with 18 packs with four cards each,  plus a bonus pack (likely Ice) and should yield the following, on average:

  • One Autographed Rookie Jersey
  • One Rookie Jersey or Winning Materials
  • One Winning Materials dual-swatch card
  • One Winning Combos dual-swatch card
  • One Ice Premieres Rookie Card
  • Two numbered inserts

    What’s the deal with Upper Deck and the Team Canada stuff the last couple of years? I get that a large amount of this product goes to Canada, but how about some Team USA cards sometime? These cards are sold here, too.
