2019-2020 Upper Deck SP Authentic Review


SP Authentic has long been one of the most popular and liked products for hockey collectors. It's clean design, on-card autographs, and potential for amazing hits is second to none. This year, SPA continues the tradition with a release that brings collectors exactly what they expect. It's easy to see that Upper Deck will move a lot of this product to eager collectors wanting to open up as many packs and boxes as they can.

Product Thoughts
The base design of SPA is the same mostly white aesthetic that Upper Deck has riffed on for years and years and years. The background on this year's base is a bit busier than I personally like, but it's not offensive. The design actually reminds me of SPA sets from the '00s for some reason. Everything on the face of the card is clean. Upper Deck is wise to continue this design forward - as they say: if it ain't broke... don't fix it!


The main chase for most people will be the Future Watch Autographed rookie cards. SPA's main claim to fame are these popular rookies. The Aleksi Saarela shown above isn't autographed, but the majority of them are. Each box of SPA comes with one autographed FWA. The one I received, Joel Farabee, was a redemption. FWA's are second only in desirability to rookie cards from The Cup. FWAs are favorite of many and lots of collectors go for a complete set. Attaining a complete set is extremely challenging. Since you only get one guaranteed a box, the best way to go after the cards you need would be to purchase them on the secondary market. I completed 2 SPA FWA sets this way. 


SPA has gotten a bit cluttered in recent years with insert cards. It used to be that there were SP Essentials as a subset, but now there are more parallels and cards with different designs. These cards add variety to the set, but it was nice when SPA was a dead simple product. Of course, that meant opening pack after pack of base cards... so I guess having these to mix up the look helps break the monotony of the cards.


With this release, collectors will find all sorts of interesting and different looking cards. The SpectrumFX cards are shiny and pop out of the pack. Collectors can go for bounties where they can get their hands on limited edition Upper Deck cards. I wonder how many collectors actually go for bounties as I have not seen much excitement for them. The bounties seem a bit difficult to pull of and an expensive proposition to complete.


Aside from the Future Watch Autograph, collectors will find a random assortment of other signature cards in the product. The Sign of the Times autographed cards are a staple of the set. One of the intriguing autographed sets in SPA this year are the 09/10 Throwback Future Watch cards. I started collecting again in 09/10 and have that complete Future Watch Auto set. Seeing that design brings back a lot of fond memories!


To round things off, Upper Deck has inserted updates to its flagship set within the product. Late season trades and moves as well as Young Gun rookie cards can be found here. Collectors who are lucky can even find exclusive and acetate variations of these cards. Taylor Hall doesn't look right as a Coyote btw.

Positives:
  • On-card autographs for everything.
  • The rookie cards in this set are highly sought after and hold good value.
  • Excellent design that has stood the test of time.
Negatives:
  • There seems to be less hits guaranteed by Upper Deck year after year.
  • Bounty cards take up space in this product.
  • Hitting the FWA you want is VERY difficult.

Overall Rating:

9/10

      I have something to share with you!!! There is a great joy in my heart which I want to share with everyone. My name is victoria joe. I had a misunderstanding with my lover a few years ago; which led to us to break up and he never wanted to hear my voice again. He saw a beautiful love more prettier than myself, but as time went on I met Doctor Love0. He is a great spell caster (medicine man ). I contacted him through his email: (doctor0lovespell@gmail. com) and explained everything to him. He said that I shouldn't worry, that my lover will come back to me on his knees begging for forgiveness. I bought  some items that he told me to buy for the preparation of the spell. After everything was prepared he told me that my lover will come to me after 24hours begging. My greatest joy now is that he actually came back to me and fell on his knees begging for forgiveness, and today we are happy. Do you have any problem with your loved one? Do not know what to do?

  3. It was a good box at least you got two autos some boxes comes with no autos douglas hutton

  4. Absolutely love SPA. Favourite set among the hockey cards. Love the design and on-card autos. I don't care much about the bounty since I don't purchase enough boxes. You're right about completing the FWA through the secondary market since it is so hard to get all the desired FWA from the box breaks. Perhaps the other option is to join group breaks.

  5. Great review! First off, I agree that fwa seem to be up there with young guns and the cup RPA's. To me, it seems that fw and fwa hold their value which is good. Your box was average I would say. That Radulov auto is pretty good, while the Farrabe auto is kind of meh, but not terrible. I haven't seen a monster hit from non group breaks yet besides the Makar and Hughes fwa.


    Thanks for the video, review and giveaway;)

  9. Always great to see you bringing on the new content to your channel, Luke. Thanks for sharing and likewise, wish your box was stronger in terms of hits and inserts. Some of them had a lesser design style but that is classic SPA.

  16. 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..

  20. I was married for 13 years. My marriage has been deteriorating for some time so it was bound to unravel. I was her loyal, faithful supportive and trusting Husband. She had an additional wild side that went out of control. The last incident was when I found out that she was having an affair 2 weeks before our 14th wedding anniversary. Out of the blue my wife just sprung the divorce talk on me. I was so hurt and being a man, I thought I could cope with being single. It was so hard to move on so i had to reach out for help online. Our marriage and family therapists thought that "something" was not right about my wife. I went online and i found out about Dr Ogweshan and his good spell work reviews. I contacted him and explained my situation to him and he told me not worry that my wife will come back to me after 3 days. 3 days later in the morning around 09:34am I was totally shocked on how my wife called me telling me how much she missed me. His spell worked on me so fast and my wife has been so loving, Natural and I'm having a happy marriage after using his love spell. If you are in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged, believe me...There is light at the end of this tunnel. You can reach him on his contact details. Email: drogweshan@gmail.com  Whatsapp: +2347050670365
