Since the regular issue products don't get much attention I thought I'd review 2008-09 UD MVP Hockey. I won't bother with the stats and stuff for the release, since you can find that on the product sheets.
I limit myself to one pack of the product, just as if I'm a kid spending his realistic allowance.
From my pack I pulled:
12 Eric Perrin (thrashers)
30 Derek Roy (sabres)
32 Thomas Vanek (sabres)
202 Jason Spezza (senators)
223 Peter Mueller (coyotes)
280 Pavol Demitra (canucks)
289 Jason Blake (maple leafs)
Marked by Valor #MV9 Brad Richards (stars)
7 base and an insert, decent. For this product I think pack size should increase by a few cards 10-12 I think is a better fit for this product.
Anyhow, decent photos on the cards, nothing super action, mostly just socks up shots in full frame.
The silver script and super script parallels to the regular set are gone (maybe they have been in previous years, it's the first pack of this product line I've busted). All the base cards now have a silver "signature", which I think is one of the nice points to this set. Also appearing are the mvp logo in silver foil, club nickname in black type, and player name in silver foil.
Base card backs have no photo but do have jersey number, team logo, player stats, regular season stats, a seasons played total, and a four to five line blurb.
The insert issue has an upper body photo, which is repeated on the reverse in smaller size along with a blurb and a list of awards the player has won.
For the price, a nice issue with mostly positive points.
