The Best Hickey Trading Cards Nominees show diversity and range for collectors. You can get in on these cards for as little as ten cents a card, an old school concept with some old school names. Here are the nominees.
2010-11 Donruss Hockey
Everything old is new again as Donruss Hockey brings back Rated Rookies. With Acetate and die cut cards, it almost feels like a set out of the 90’s but it is definitely up to date. With a deep checklist and lots of inserts, this almost feels like a premium product, but its still a great for base set collectors.
2009-10 In The Game Heroes and Prospects Hockey
This box tells you exactly what you are getting, no surprises here, but it’s done well. This set has a nice mix of old and new players, and as with most ITG releases, the jersey cards are just a little bit different.
2010-11 O-Pee-Chee Hockey
You want to build a base set? How about one that’s 600 cards large? With graphics that almost feel like they belong in the 60’s, this is one happening set, man.
2010-11 Score Hockey
It’s been over a decade since a release of Score Hockey cards and these feel like they are picking up where they left off. An extremely retro feel, but it works. These cards are come in a 550 base plus 50 rookie set. At about a dollar a pack, you wont feel a pinch to your wallet trying to collect all of them.
2010-11 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey
We’ve got two words for you “Young Guns.” That’s what drives collectors wild about these cards and with the addition of 20th Anniversary Parallel cards this is a great set.
And now… the All About Cards 2010 Sports Card Award for Best Hockey Trading Cards goes to;
2010-11 Donruss Hickey is a solid release with some weight to it. You can still pull some nice hits and a variety of inserts from these boxes, but the base cards will keep you building and collecting.
