It would figure that only moments after I post about Upper Deck e-Pack that a couple of major updates would come out.
First is the addition of 2015-16 MVP Hockey to the available packs to buy and cards to collect. It was released with 8 cards per pack at $2.49 each, and a Silver Script parallel comes at 1 per 3 packs. Other features include a 1-200 base set (where 101-200 are SPs) and then two parallels, Silver Script and Super Script.
Also there are a few other things included, Colors and Contours, Territory, Rookie Redemption, #1 Draft Picks, Autos, and Jersey’s. And once again they’ve included the combine cards feature that I think is the greatest feature introduced into the hobby in years. This time it’s a little more, 20 base cards combine to make a green parallel that can be sent in a physical form.
So of course I bought a few packs. I’m not going to go through each card I got, most are base. I’m not sure how I feel about it but with 4 packs I got 3 of the same player. This is great for chasing a green parallel but not great for collecting a set.
Quick Breakdown of my 4 packs.
Base 1-100: 27 (4 duplicates)
Base 101-200 SPs: 4 (1 Rookie)
Parallels: 1 Silver Script
The second big update is that on May 4th Upper Deck e-Pack will include Series 2 Hockey. This is big for me because this will allow me to chase the Jack Eichel Young Gun that I’ve been chasing in the physical cards for quite some time. I’m a big fan of the Upper Deck e-Pack service. I’m glad to see it expanding to other sets. I’m sure I’m going to spend way too much money on these digital cards. But that’s a different discussion, for another time, I have to go open one more pack.
