2013-14 Black Diamond Hockey Details


2013-14 Black Diamond Hockey gets more literal with its name. The card company is including relic cards with actual diamonds in them.

Of course, the Quad Diamond Rookie Gem Relics will be tough to pull, but UD has included them into a new configuration for the December release.

Each box will come with 20 five-card packs, including a bonus UD Ice pack. Collectors should find several Double and Triple Diamond cards in each box with an additional Quad Diamond – and a bonus Quad Diamond card. There will be at least one parallel and two Double Diamond Dual Jersey Puzzles in every box.

Rookies will be easier to pull with three to four Triple Diamond Rookie Gems and at least one Quad Diamond Rookie Gem.

In every case, there should be one Lustrous Rookie, one Hardware Heroes, four PETG Championship Rings and four autographs. Lustrous Stars and Lustrous All-Time Greats will be tougher pulls.

Every year, the UD Ice bonus cards seem to be a big hit on the secondary market, if you pull the right rookie.

    Every year I want to dislike these because the design is stale and recycled. But…I can’t. Something about them just won’t allow it. Maybe it’s all the black or maybe it’s all the shimmery foil. I don’t know. But despite the traditional design that makes its return year in and year out, this is a solid product with the potential for some big pulls. The Ice Premieres are a hobby staple and I love the Championship Rings. The addition of the Diamonds in the Rookie Gems will be interesting to see once they start hitting the secondary market. It’s not the first time diamonds have been put in cards and I’m sure it won’t be the last. I remember the hype of the “diamond chips” in the 1996-97 Zenith Champion Salute Diamond cards. Those things still get traction on the secondary market (that is when you can find them and they are actually advertised correctly).

    2 Blasters yielded a pair of AS cards – Wayne Gretzky Quad and Malkin Quad. Nice. Nicer was an ALLSTAR – MB Martin Brodeur game jersey card.
