2015-16 Upper Deck Hockey Portfolio

Upper Deck hobby exclusive of this 340 photo card set. Eight cards in a pack. Let's rip
47 - Tobias Rieder - printed on slick photo card stock. A brownish frame type border surrounds the player's photo. Back of the card feature his season highlights and stats from previous season.
141 - Sami Vatanen
18 - Kris Versteeg - nice shot with him wearing a Kings (got traded to them from Hurricanes in mid-season) sweater and batting the puck.
267 - Taylor Hall - AP Wire photo which runs in 1:7 packs. Traded in offseason to Devils. Who the hell running the Oilers?
4 - David Krejci
7 - Victor Hedman - from expression of the fan's face he scored one for her
144 - Tomas Tatar
42 - Nick Bjugstad - great expression shot of him celebrating. He must have scored a goal

Not much look into this set other than photography. The subsets of cards 201-340 will take a while to build this set consider the odds.

I dont love the design but you cant argue with the photo selection, especially on the Hedman. It almost looks like he's pointing at that girl in the front row.

I have pretty much the same comment--the usual great photography from UD but I'm not wild about the brown borders.
