The Winner for Best Hockey Trading Cards announced.

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.
