2020-21 Upper Deck Extended Series Hockey takes the flagship brand into a third product for the year.
Per UD, "Obviously with this season being so unique, it was important to do an extended series with some additional Young Guns players and unique rookie content."
2020-21 Upper Deck Series Extended 2 Hockey Base / Young Guns
Bringing the overall total to 700+ cards, 2020-21 Upper Deck Extended Series Hockey offers the final part of the record-setting set. This includes a total of 125+ Young Guns for 2020-21, with the last batch expected to arrive via Extended Series.
For those wondering, the rookie card cutoff date is February 12. Any players debuting after this will not be in contention for this product.
Of course, the base set and Young Guns (1:4) subset cards each provide French (Base - 1:30; YG - 1:120), Exclusives (#/100) and High Gloss (#/10) parallels.
Look for Hobby-only Clear Cut editions for the base (1:64) and rookie cards (1:192), along with Clear Cut Exclusives, which are also only issued in Hobby formats.
2020-21 Upper Deck Extended Series 2 Hockey Inserts
Among the inserts, Dazzlers again picks up the card numbering—from #101-150—across several color versions.
From there, 2020-21 Upper Deck Extended Series Hockey digs into the past to fill out the rest of the set.
The 2005-06 Upper Deck Tribute (1:24) insert naturally honors the prior design, adding Exclusives (#/100) and High Gloss (#/10) parallels.
Many of these options feature veterans and rookies, including Ovation and SPx Finite, which are both printed on 40-point stock.
In addition to the base inserts, Ultimate Victory (1:20) highlights Connor McDavid's "Top Moments" in McDavid MMXXI (1:80).
More throwback cards arrive in HoloGrFx and UD3.
Falling two per box is Rookie Class SE, which adds a facsimile signature.
