Preview: 2006-07 Sweet Shot

As proof in the pudding that Upper Deck keeps trotting out pure drivel for hockey products, I present the company's latest offering, 2006-07 Sweet Shot.

A 100-card base set that mixes players past and present, I believe it's nothing more than a late-season cash grab that offers very little for collectors. Players moved at the trade deadline, such as Philadelphia's Martin Biron and St. Louis' Brad Boyes, are shown in their old uniforms. The cards, which come in a tin, also lack true rookies.

As is mostly the case with Upper Deck's late-season offerings, only diehard collectors, or those with an unlimited amount of disposable income, will likely find this product worth buying.
