Baseball collectors can skip this one, but hockey collectors take note.  Those of you who can afford to throw $300 at a tin of four hockey cards may be interested in the print runs for Upper Deck’s The Cup uncut sheets.  So here you go:

It’s funny that the black parallels, the supposed 1 of 1’s end up with an uncut sheet, isn’t it?  That means that Upper Deck actually printed two of the 1 of 1’s, which logically would mean they aren’t really one of ones.  Not that most people in the hobby drool for the 1 of 1’s anymore anyway.

Imagine the guy who gets the framed uncut sheet breaks it open and slices them up.  Oh, the delicious havoc that would wreak.

So, which would you prefer?  I think I’d take the Chirography sheet if I could pick any of them as the cards look nice individually.  I imagine, though, that this would be pretty expensive, so the only way I’d manage one is if I found it in the street, though.  Or generous donation of a reader.  I’m not picky.

I have the honorable numbers/dual numbers. Do you think that means I wil l get both the single honorable numbers and the dual honorable numbers? Because it is not possible to have an uncut sheet for 86 cards. That would mean a 43 X 2 card sheet. I do not see different redemptions for the single honorable numbers and the dual honorabel numbers.

Judging only from what you tell me and the press release itself, I’m pretty sure it means you get both, although I can find nothing to confirm or deny that elsewhere.

The best thing to do would be to contact the 800 number on the back of the card and ask them.

Are any of these uncut sheets autographed?

Yes, I believe that 2, 7a, 10a and b, 11, 17, 18, 21, 22, and 24 are autographed.

None of the sheets is autographed or have jersey or patches. They are the plain cards before they go through the process of adding the pieces or signatures.

How come no print run for sheet # 25

Well … I pulled form # 24, the above list says its the dual shields sheet, but the card says its “Cup Enshrinements” ??? confused collector! I would have a hard time believing they would send the sheets out for autographs and I wouldn’t expect the player to show up and sign them?? Time will tell!
