Early Preview: 2012-13 Fleer Retro Hockey

The next sport to get the Fleer Retro treatment from Upper Deck is hockey. Fleer Retro Football is set to hit shelves in a couple of weeks with Fleer Retro Hockey scheduled for an April release. Each 20 pack master box (Two 10-pack mini-boxes per master box) will run in the $300-400 range and include 6 autographs plus 4 rare 1990s inserts.
There will be at least 13 different 1990s inserts included:

1997-98 Precious Metal Gems- Red #/100, Blue #/25 and Green #/10
1996-97 Flair Showcase Row 2 Legacy & Legacy Masterpiece
1997-98 Essential Credentials, Future & Now
1996-97 Flair Showcase Hot Shots
1997-98 Skybox Premium Golden Touch
1998-99 Skybox Thunder Noyz Boyz
1998-99 Playmaker’s Theatre
1997 Fleer Diamond Tribute
1998-99 Fleer Tradition Electrifying
1997-98 Ultra Stars
1997-98 Metal Universe Championship Hardware
1998-99 Skybox Premium Intimidation Nation
1997-98 Jambalaya
Because Upper Deck has an NHL license this will be the first set that includes professional teams and logos, which is going to be a huge upswing over the football release, a necessity considering that the NHL lockout has led to some collectors to step away from the sport.
