After a two-year hiatus, Upper Deck makes a strong return to the market with 2003-04 Upper Deck Ice Hockey. 2003-04 UD Ice is fully loaded with great rookies, eye catching signature cards, and technology cards that are sure to please the most hardcore hockey collector. This year's Ice comes packed with the collectible industry's first ever acetate patch cards, two limited acetate rookie cards per box, four signed acetate jersey cards per case, and two signed Plexiglas cards per case. As if collectors needed more incentive to grab this set, Upper Deck has included Under Glass signature cards of some of the biggest names in hockey, including Don Cherry, Bobby Orr, Patrick Roy, Mr. Hockey and of course the Great One himself Wayne Gretzky.

"We received a lot of feedback that said we needed to bring Ice back," said Joe Fallon, Upper Deck Group Manager. "This product has a lot to offer every collector. Very limited acetate rookies that parallel on to Plexiglas, signatures on acetate and Plexiglas, and acetate jersey and patch cards all make for some of the stunning looking cards on the market. This is a can't miss product for hockey collectors looking for something new and exciting."
