2019-2020 Upper Deck SP Game Used Review


SP Game Used released this week to provide collectors with 'premium hits'. The product is configured in a one pack-per-box format holding 6 cards. While there certainly are premium hits to be found, getting them proves to be quite the difficult task. To be honest, SP Game Used has never been a favorite of mine. But maybe this year's edition will change my mind!

Product Thoughts
So after opening my box of 19/20 SP Game used, my mind has not been changed. I still think this product is terrible. The numbering of the cards are all over the place with boxes full of weak hits. The base design overall is decent, but for a product called 'Game-Used' there just needs to be more... much more. Typically a box will have two standard cards in the front (a rookie and a vet). My box contained two rookies. Both were serial numbered, but both had very different numbering. It'd be wise to consult a checklist to figure out which variation you get.


A standard jersey card really isn't anything special. Other than for player collectors, the standard jersey hit is not an exciting pull. I'd much rather get a low serial numbered card than one of these. The jersey piece shown on the Trent Frederic above is a pretty small piece, but to really top it off, it isn't even game-used! The back of the card states that it is just a player worm swatch. Strike one for having game-used stuff in the product!


I was pretty excited to see a big fat card in the center of my pack. When I got to it I found a Banner year mem card. The enclosed material of this card was used in a banner at the NHL Draft. So... maybe a sort of cool NHL relic, but not a game-used relic. And this banner piece was BORING with just a flat orange color. For being the hit of the box, this was terribly weak. Strike two.


As SP Game-Used is considered a premium product, I expect some premium content. Un-numbered sticker autos are not what I'd call that. I've seen many boxes spit out these rather lazy auto cards. The design of the card doesn't even account for the autograph. They just stick it on the front of an Authentic Rookies card and called it a day. This is strike three for this box!


My only actual game-used content was in the form of this tiny game-used jersey piece of Ryan O'Reilly. The concept of this card is pretty cool, but the embedded nameplate is manufactured - not from an actual locker piece. Arg! What a frustrating product! I've been saying it for years... but this product needs a complete overhaul.

Positives:
  • Lots of rookie content.
  • Great if you like jersey cards.
  • Not terribly expensive.
Negatives:
  • Banner and net relics aren't really specific to any player.
  • Manufactured content like the locker room plate and name patch letters.
  • Many of the relics are not actually game-used. That's not good in a product called Game-Used.

Overall Rating:

5/10

  2. I'm in! SPGU gives out almost no value for its price point. I've seen case breaks where the best hit just about pays for a single one of the boxes. Very dissapointed with this one, would not be upset if it was cancelled. YT : TheHabsGuy

    I'm in! It's not the best product out there. A lot of it is not even game used as the product name suggests. It's event used instead. It has a high price point but the value of the cards that come out of it doesn't match it at all. Overall, it's a bit disappointing but not the worst product out there.

  13. My name is Sarah I am really pleased with this service. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr.Ebhoi. I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Franklin in one of our stupid fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything I cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.I read a testimony by a man called Chris Holden about him saying that how Dr.Ebhoi help him to get back is EX wife within 48 hours. I quickly email him and also get back my husband with his love spell and when I was at my most desperate he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it or how this magic works, but all I know is... IT WORKS!! Franklin my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr.Ebhoi email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help contact him now (ebhoisolution@gmail.com) thank you..
