Upper Deck MVP is making a comeback as a stand-alone hockey-card brand. While the brand has been issued in each of the last three seasons inserted in another brand (be it Victory or Upper Deck Series 2), the 2014-15 series will mark its first release as a stand-alone brand since 2010-11.
This marks the 15th year for Upper Deck MVP hockey cards, a brand that was introduced in 1998-99. After its last year as a stand-alone brand in 2010-11, it was released as a brand-inserted-in-another-brand concept as part of 2011-12 Victory.
The 2014-15 Upper Deck MVP series will be available on Aug. 6, 2014. The brand will be sold in eight-card packs, with 24 packs in each box and 16 boxes in each case.
The base set features a 200-card shell set plus a 100-card extended short-print series. Parallel cards are offered in “nine tiers of scarcity,” otherwise entitled “Colors & Contours.”
