2016-17 SP Authentic Hockey Hobby Case Hits (average)
2 On-Card Autograph Patch/Materials cards
Shaking things up slightly, 2016-17 SP Authentic Hockey changes the 15-16 formula from three guaranteed autographs per box down to two. However, there is still a chance at the third signed card plus the new format results in a lower box price.
Starting off with 100 cards in the main set, 2016-17 SP Authentic Hockey immediately adds to the hits via Base Autographs (1:216 packs) and Limited Autograph Materials (#/50 or less). Of course, the base set is supplemented with hobby favorites Future Watch (#/999) rookie cards. Available in both base and autographed versions, the signed rookies can also be found with limited Inscription Variations (#/50) that come out of the total 999 print run.
New Spectrum editions (1-2 per box), featuring Spectrum Light FX technology, apply to both the base and Future Watch cards. Base versions average 1:18 packs and the FW parallels are split between Level 1 (1:36 packs), Level 2 (1:90 packs) and Level 3 (1:360 packs).
The Authentic Moments subset (1:4 packs) is another returning favorite for 2016-17 SP Authentic Hockey and is joined by Silver Skates (1:6 packs). Both come in Gold (#/99) as well as signed parallels: Authentic Moments Autographs (1:1,440 packs) and Silver Skates Autographs (Veteran #/10, Rookie #/25).
A staple of the SPA brand, the Sign of the Times insert (1:120 overall) is found along with Rookies (#/199, #/99, or #/35). The SOTT line also adds multi-player autographs via Duals (#/25), Trios (#/15), Quads (#/10), Sixes (#/6) and Eights (#/5).
Other signed inserts to be found in 2016-17 SP Authentic Hockey include Global Chirography (1:576 packs), Great White North (1:576 packs), Immortal Inks (#/10) and Marks of Distinction (#/25).
Finally, as in past years, collectors are treated to additional cards intended to build on earlier 16-17 sets like the flagship Upper Deck Hockey product. This means Upper Deck Update cards for Base (1:4 packs), Young Guns (1:13 packs) and new Season Highlights (1:26 packs). Parallels include Exclusives (#/100) and High Gloss (#/10).
