2017-18 MVP Hockey Hobby Pack

The first product of the 2017-18 Hockey (card) season has hit shelves.  I don't understand how that happens when Upper Deck will still release more 2016-17 products, but what do it know?

MVP hockey is always the first release of the season and the most basic of all products.  There's not much to see, odds are long and players are likely not pictured with new teams.  The product typically holds no long-term value unless you hit a rookie redemption of a strong-selling rookie.

The price for the single pack that I purchased is too high for what the product is, but boxes can be had for around $40.

2017-18 MVP #194 Brandon Saad (back)
The set has a very basic design and no foil.  The backs are clean and concise.  As mentioned, players are often not pictures with their current team.  Brandon Saad was traded back to the Chicago Blackhawks on June 23.
2017-18 MVP #61 Alex Killorn

2017-18 MVP #193 Jakob Silfverberg

2017-18 MVP #33 Martin Hanzal

2017-18 MVP #141 Tobias Rieder
I guess I'm not really sure if this is the front or back of the card.  The other side is the image below, but what appears as the front has the card number, information, etc.
