Just a couple of more months until hockey collectors will get to see this season’s top rookies on NHL-licensed product. Upper Deck is going all out with the Double Rookie Class and previewed 2013-14 Artifacts, a September release, which seems full of Rookie Card goodness.

Each box will hold 10 four-card packs with four hits.

There is one autographed card in every box and without a doubt, collectors will be looking for many of the 2013-14 rookies. But Artifacts offers more than just autos.

There are three memorabilia cards in every box, including a multi-player swatch card. Memorabilia hits can include patches, sticks, straps and tags – and every box, on average, should have at least one of these upper tier memorabilia cards.

Along with memorabilia cards, Upper Deck is adding Frozen Artifacts and Treasured Swatches Stick-Tape, and Tundra Sixes with jersey, patch, strap and tag variations as case hits.

The subsets for 2013-14 Artifacts include Rookies, Goalies and Team Canada, numbered to 999. In addition, there is one parallel numbered to 99 or less in every box.
