The Upper Deck Company has announced rookie redemption checklists for three separate hockey card sets. The checklists were announced for Upper Deck MVP, Fleer Ultra and Upper Deck Artifacts – three sets that were released earlier this year.
Explained Chris Carlin via the Upper Deck Blog, “Upper Deck includes rookie exchange cards into early season 2014-15 trading card releases like MVP, Fleer Ultra and Artifacts hockey sets. We like to give prospects time to skate where they are allowed to have NHL® trading cards made before we finalize the checklists and begin production of the cards.”
The 30 exchange rookies in 2014-15 Fleer Ultra are numbered cards 201-230.
The 42 exchange rookies in 2014-15 Upper Deck Artifacts are numbered cards 151-192 (each rookie card is serial numbered to 699 copies). The 18 exchange autographed rookie cards are numbered I-XVIII (each rare rookie card is serial numbered to 99 copies).
The 36 exchange rookies in 2014-15 Upper Deck MVP are numbered cards 301-336.
“We are in the production process now and will provide updates as to when fans can expect to receive their cards soon, but usually they are completed in March/April and ship out in April/May each year,” wrote Carlin. “We will provide a more detailed time frame (via the Upper Deck Blog) once production nears completion.”
Fleer Ultra, Upper Deck Artifacts and Upper Deck MVP were all released before the start of the regular season in October 2014.
