2022-23 Upper Deck Stature Hockey is one of those products that delivers a lot of premium content without a super-premium price tag. It’s not a cheaper low-end product by any means but the price point is lower than a lot of other upper echelon releases.
Among the promised contents in every hobby box is a minimum of one on-card autograph.
2022-23 Upper Deck Stature Hockey Checklist Overview
The main base set has 200 total cards. Half of this is veterans, which land two per box. The remaining 100 cards are rookies numbered to 399. Standard parallels include:
- Green – /99
- Red – /75
- Orange – /55
- Blue – /35
- Black – /15
Select cards also have autograph versions. Veterans are 1:14 packs while rookies have either 199 or 99 copies. Additional signature parallels come in Green (/65 or less), Red (/35 or less), Blue (/10 or less), and Black (1/1).
In addition to traditional parallels, the base set has three levels of variations as well. Each of these has an assortment of colors and premium upgrades. The result is a fairly large overall checklist but one that is very much interconnected.
Image Variants (/99) change out the photo. Green parallels have 66 copies each while Red are limited to 33. Autographs are 1:28 packs on the vet side of the checklist and numbered to 49 for rookies. Green (/20 or less), Red (/5), Blue (/3) and Black (1/1) make up the parallels for these.
Next are Design Variants, which have 65 copies for their standard versions. From there, it breaks down into Red (/25) and Purple (1/1). Rather than just signatures, the top takes on these have both an autograph and patch. More Red and Purple (1/1) parallels populate the product.
Finally, there are Design and Image Variants that have both a different photo and layout. They’re also the rarest variations with just 22 copies plus Red (/11) and Purple (1/1). Autograph Patch cards are here, too.
Additional Autographs and Inserts
The 2022-23 Upper Deck Stature Hockey checklist has three more insert sets. Wunderkind (1:2 packs) is all about rookies. Dignified (1:4 packs) puts the spotlight on legends from the past. Finally, there’s Splendid Skaters (1:4 packs), which looks to the NHL’s current leaders.
All three have the same assortment of parallels: Green (/150), Red (/75), Orange (/35), Blue (/15) and Black (1/1). Autograph and auto patch versions are also in the set’s lineup.
