2016-17 UD SP Game Used Hockey — Interesting :)

photos-4-on-feb-3-2017-7_17_20-pmI tried a box of the 2016-17 UD SP Game Used Hockey.  Overall, I’d have to say, “Hmm.  Interesting!”  Not particularly excited about the players I got, but the cards are very nice.  The overall designs are eye-catching while maintaining focus on the player or relic as appropriate, and it’s nice that the designs for the various types of cards complement each other. The box, $85.95 from dacardworld.com, has 1 pack with 6 cards, which averages to $14.33 a card.  Not sure what each card is worth (yeah, I know, it’s worth what you or someone else would pay for it).  Same types of cards with more of my favorite players and teams, and I’d being going bonkers!  For now it’s just interesting lol.  The quality of these cards is very nice.  The Nino Niederreiter card is a knockout, very nice auto with a thick patch that looks like it’s from a number on a shoulder.  The Voracek, Shaw, and Larkin relics are all single color but they look pretty cool, and again if I was fans of those guys I’d be more psyched instead of just content and satisfied.  The two refractors are nice looking cards, and the Montreal rookie is the only one I hadn’t heard of before.  Been pulling a fair number of Habs cards lately.  Anyhow, I’ll keep the Niederreiter for my PC, learn more about Lehkonen (the Canadiens rookie),  and be open to trading or selling the other four.  Maybe I can trade for some other SPGU from my favorite teams and players.  So in case it wasn’t clear, lol, not psyched about the players but pleased with the cards, they are quite nice!
