2021-22 Upper Deck SkyBox Metal Universe Hockey Hobby Box

Expected release date : 2022-11-15

15 packs per box
7 cards per pack

An homage, of sorts, to '90s collecting, 2021-22 Skybox Metal Universe Hockey sees the return of Upper Deck's retro NHL brand for year two.

Similar to Fleer Retro and Fleer Showcase, the throwback-inspired release is heavily geared to inserts and parallels.

Although the 2020-21 product specifically mentions one autograph per Hobby box, the '21-22 box hit can be an autograph, PMG, Jambalaya, or "other coveted cards."

2021-22 Skybox Metal Universe Hockey Base / PMG Parallels
The main set for 2021-22 Skybox Metal Universe Hockey consists of base (#1-100), Alternate Jersey (#101-150; 1:2 packs) and rookie (#151-200; 1:2 packs) cards. Each pack should have either a base rookie card or alternate jersey edition.

In addition to Printing Plates, all four subsets come as Precious Metal Gems (PMG) versions, which have long been a hobby favorite. While the Green/Red PMG cards total 100 copies, the first 10 cards are green and the final 90 are red.
