I did take a quick look through some of the 2013-14 Upper Deck cards at the Expo. I admit that I was disappointed. A cursory look showed at least 4 base cards that used the same image as the Score set. I remarked when the Score set came out that UD would have a tough time competing in terms of photo choices. By that I meant that I was hoping for even better choices, not the exact same ones. The ones I found after a short look were Jeff Carter, Andrew Cogliano, Derrick Brassard and Nikolai Kulemin. I'm sure if I were to spend some time on ebay comparing and contrasting, I'd find more.
That sucks. Score came out months ago. If you can adjust the set to include a card of Hertl, I'm sure you could find a new photo once you realize your competition opted for it first. In their defense, the 4 cards were among my favourites in the Score release, especially Carter's hat trick card.
So, I'm probably limiting my UD base purchases this year to this single, solitary pack. It turns out none of these were repeats.
Yeah. I can't really see myself building this set beyond hunting for cards for the mask binder.
