Earlier this season, we posted Upper Deck’s new Young Guns insert set featuring Vegas forward Alex Tuch.
With a limited number of Vegas players printed, UD explained to us that more VGK cards would be produced as the year went on. Well, the waiting is over. Upper Deck hooked up local fans with a 2018 Golden Knights Inaugural Season 15-player team set.
Oscar Dansk, Cody Eakin, Deryk Engelland, Erik Haula (twice), William Karlsson, Brendan Leipsic, Oscar Lindberg, Brayden McNabb, Colin Miller, Tomas Nosek, David Perron, Luca Sbisa, Nate Schmidt, Malcolm Subban, and Shea Theodore all made Upper Deck’s Inaugural Images commemorative set. Unfortunately, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare didn’t make the cut.
I mentioned Haula has two cards in the set, which is sort of true. The new UD Golden Knights commemorative set even comes with an error card. How awesome is that? Those of us who collected cards in the late 80’s all remember the highly coveted Billy Ripken error card.
Leipsic can’t catch a break, his debut Golden Knights card is labeled with Haula’s name and stats on the back.
The pictured team set is not available to buy. To complete the team set, collectors will have to buy 2018 NHL Upper Deck packs and boxes. Legacy Card Shop has promotional giveaways with UD purchases. Legacy also has signed memorabilia by VGK rookies Cody Glass, Nick Suzuki and Eric Brannstrom.
For the collectors out there, go check out Legacy Sports Cards. The store is stocked with new Upper Deck packs and boxes. I left with a Leipsic error card and a huge smile.
