The old-school feel of OPC but with a modern, chromium flair, 2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey takes NHL fans on a colorful journey. Each hobby box has one autograph and a whole mess of parallels and inserts.
The flashy cousin of the primary ’17-18 O-Pee-Chee release, 2017-18 OPC Platinum does not go as wide in its card coverage, but it makes up for that with a plentiful collecting rainbow.
2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey Base / Parallels
Just as in the 2016-17 set, the base lineup consists of 200 cards, including 140 veterans, 10 legends and 50 Marquee Rookie cards. Parallels provide wild finishes and even more elaborate names. In addition to the base Rainbow (1:4 packs), there are Violet Pixels (1:10 packs), Red Prism (#/199), Royal Blue Cubes (#/99), Seismic Gold (#/50), Orange Checkers (#/25 – Hobby), Emerald Surge (#/10) and Golden Treasures (1/1) editions.
2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey Inserts
Adding more options, the 2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum checklist incorporates several inserts. Combining to average three per box, choices take the form of the Destined for Glory (1:22 packs), In Action (1:27 packs), and Platinum Records (1:15 packs) cards. These each also have on-card Rainbow Autograph versions.
Meanwhile, Retro (1:4 packs) taps into nostalgia with 100 cards that come six per box. Collectors can find one Retro Rainbow in every box, and there is a shot at Blue Rainbow (#/149), Green Rainbow (#/49) and Golden Treasures Rainbow (1/1) parallels. Limited Red Autograph cards are available for veterans (1:300 packs) and rookies (1:150 packs).
