The base card designs are a little boring but also very clean lol. This set is released late in the hockey season, so it’s nice that they include a highlight from earlier in the year on the back.
I really like the autos I got, all on-card. Although each box has two autos on average (a Future Watch Auto and another one), I got three!!! First, a jaw dropper — Sign of the Times Rod Langway. Second, a Sign of the Times Logan Couture (c’mon, I know somebody gets to call him Juicy lol). Third, a Future Watch Auto from Christian Djoos of the Washington Capitals (always nice to get an RC of a guy who actually gets playing time with the big club).
The other inserts are also pretty cool— three Authentic Moments (including Henrik Sedin’s 1000th point!), four Rookie Year Milestones (including a Geno Malkin), three red parallels, one Spectrum FX (nice etched refractor), three veteran UD Updates and one Young Gun Update (Casey DeSmith of the Penguins).
This box was a fun break. Personally, I think SPA is a great product with cool autos and some neat inserts at a reasonable price. I give 2017-18 Upper Deck SP Authentic Hockey a solid 4 out of 5 stars!
