When Forest Gump uttered the words, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get,” he may have very well been talking about 2015-16 Upper Deck NHL® Portfolio. The price-point for this product is modest, but the content is incredible! What makes it very interesting is that not only does it give you one last opportunity to score rookies from the 2015-16 NHL® rookie class at a wallet-friendly price, it also gives you the FIRST opportunity to score cards from members of the 2016-17 NHL® rookie class!
That’s right, with Portfolio not only can you find an incredible selection of 2015-16 NHL® rookies, but there are exchange cards for “XRC” cards featuring members of the 2016-17 NHL® rookie class including some of the hottest carryover rookies like Toronto Maple Leafs standout William Nylander. Last season Nylander was a late call-up and is expected to play a major role in the new look Leafs this season and into the future.
The last three exchange cards in this set (Rookie #4 – Rookie #6) will consist of holdover rookies like Nylander while the first three exchange cards (Rookie #1 – Rookie #3) will be made up of the most collectible rookies to skate at the start of the 16-17 NHL® season. Rookie #1 will be the most collectible player as deemed by Upper Deck, with Rookie #2 being the second most collectible and Rookie #3 being the third most collectible. We will release details on who these players are shortly after the season begins. The checklist for the last three rookie exchange cards is listed below:
Rookie #4 – William Nylander (Toronto Maple Leafs)
Rookie #5 – Anthony Mantha (Detroit Red Wings)
Rookie #6 – Pavel Zacha (New Jersey Devils)
Also worthy of note, ALL of these XRC exchange cards also have autographed versions.
