The 2001-02 Be A Player Update Series Poses the Question, "Have We Put Too Much In a Box?"
The final Be A Player product for 2001-02 is the Update Series. Given all the components in this product, hobbyists should be forewarned. There may actually be too much in a box!
Be A Player brought back the boxed Traded and Update set two years ago but this time around, the Update Series is being issued in traditional packs and boxes. Packs contain new cards from all four Be A Player brands (except for Ultimate Memorabilia 2nd Edition) issued during the 2001-02 season: the Memorabilia Series (200 new Update cards, set now complete at 500); Parkhurst (100 new Update cards, set now complete at 400); Between the Pipes (20 new Update cards, set now complete at 170 cards); and Signature Series (25 new Update cards in both unsigned and signed versions, set now complete at 250 cards). This allows collectors to complete each of their base sets with the latest rookies and traded players in their new uniforms.
The rookie card content in this product is especially exciting. Out of the 345 new base cards across the four brands, 182 (or 53 per cent) qualify as rookie cards including Ilya Kovalchuk, Dan Blackburn, Pavel Datsyuk and Kristian Huselius in the Memorabilia Series, as well as late-season call-ups such as the Islanders' Trent Hunter, Nashville's Jan Lasak, and Florida's Stephen Weiss.
The Update Series also incorporates the wide array of exciting inserts collectors have come to expect from a Be A Player Product. Highlights include autographed cards including more Limited and Extra Limited Signature Series cards, 10 additional cards from the popular "The Masks" insert set in Between the Pipes and well over 200 other game-worn memorabilia cards.
Many of the memorabilia cards are designated as updates to insert series found in earlier brands while others are unique to the Update brand. Each box will contain at least one game-worn memorabilia card or a Parkhurst Vintage Autograph card. The stated production run of these inserts will not exceed 100. In many cases, the production quantities will be substantially lower than 100.
