A Closer Look at Upper Deck’s 2021-22 Stature

The 2021-22 Upper Deck Stature collection maintains a focus on elegance, variations, and autographs, following the pattern of its previous releases. While the total number of unique cards isn't extensive, the set introduces twists through parallels and variants, some featuring autographs and memorabilia.

Each box includes at least one autograph, an insert, a pair of parallels, three base cards (including a rookie), and a final card that can be a second signature, another parallel, or a second rookie card.
