Updated April 18, 2004Is it cold in here?
No wait maybe its the box of Upper Deck Ice hockey, which I just ripped through with astonishing vigor.
I must admit that this product has all the makings of a winner, especially considering the fact hockey product has all but dried up this year.
From the clear acetate, serial-numbered rookie cards to the clear acetate, serial-numbered jersey and autographed jersey cards, 2003/04 Upper Deck Ice hockey demands some prime skate time from collectors.
Thanks to our good friends at Upper Deck (shout out to Don Williams!), we were furnished with a randomly selected hobby box of Ice and pulled some really nice stuff. The highlight of which was an autographed jersey card of Henrik Zettenberg, which has been moving well on eBay based on recently completed auctions. We also pulled 2 other game-used jersey cards including a Dominik Hasek and Joe Thornton.
In addition, we were lucky enough to pull a serial-numbered gold parallel of Jaromir Jagr serial-numbered to just 40 copies! Plus, hes pictured in a New York Rangers sweater, no less.
Overall, we were very pleased with our rip of 2003/04 Upper Deck Ice and would recommend a pack or a box or even a case to anyone and everyone who is willing to listen.
Below is a snapshot of what you might find in a randomly selected hobby box of 2003/04 Upper Deck Ice hockey. For more information, please visit Upper Decks website at www.UpperDeck.com.
