CLICK ON THE CARDS BELOW FOR A SUPER-SIZED VIEW
Upper Deck followed up their inaugural Be A Player (BAP) autograph release with an even larger a 225 card set. Autographs were seeded 1:1 pack, with parallel die-cut autographs seeded 1:7 packs. The autograph card faces match the non-autographed base set cards, while the card backs feature a certificate of authenticity. According to the 2012 Beckett Hockey Card Price Guide (21st Edition), documents suggest players signed 3000 regular and 400 die-cut autograph cards each. The Wayne Gretzky autograph card (number 97) was initially reported at 802 regular and 99 die-cut versions, but Upper Deck later announced the actual numbers as 648 regular and 234 die-cut. The Mike Richter card (number 191) was not inserted into packs, but was available via a mail-in offer. SET STATUS: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! (100 Percent Complete). The final two cards to complete this set -- 108 Wayne Gretzky and 115 Steve Yzerman -- were both purchased on July 9, 2014 and arrived July 16 and 18, respectively. So very nice to have finally completed this set after almost two decades!
