First off, I just want to say that the card design is fantastic. EA’s designers really stepped up this time.
Secondly, 90 OVR Datsyuk!
In this Outdoor Games Set Guide I’ll be covering the different collectible types, packs, subsets(including player stats), and how to complete them.
Oh and an awesome giveaway at the end!
If you aren’t familiar with HUT yet then perhaps check out my Ultimate HUT Beginner’s Guide first.
Unlike the Gift of Giving Set, the type of Outdoor Collectible you have actually matters! Different sets require different collectibles.
There are 8 different collectibles that are found in the special Outdoor Games Set Packs:
- Toronto Centennial Classic
- Detroit Centennial Classic
- Edmonton Heritage Classic
- Winnipeg Heritage Classic
- Chicago Winter Classic
- St. Louis Winter Classic
- Pittsburgh Stadium Series
- Philadelphia Stadium Series
There are also Master Collectibles that can only be obtained by completing an Epic player set.

How to Complete Subsets
The Outdoor Games Set consists of 2 Novice, 4 Epic, and 1 Master subset.
Both Novice subsets require an Outdoor Collectible, but it doesn’t matter which one.
Coin Bonanza: Trade 1 Outdoor Collectible in for straight coin – ranges from a possible 1000-200000.
While the possibility of 200,000 makes it sound like a very intriguing set to complete, the likelihood of getting that is probably extremely low. With that said, I did one anyway for an example.
Yeah, wasn’t worth it…
Outdoor Game Collectible Reroll: Since the Epic player sets each require their own collectible types, EA added in a set that lets you reroll a collectible into another random Outdoor Games Collectible. The only catch is that it costs you a Gold Collectible each time you reroll. Here’s an example:
If you are wondering how to get Gold or Carbon collectibles then see the Trading Post section of our HUT Guide.
It took me 6 rerolls to finally get a Centennial Collectible, they seem to be more rare than the others. Regardless, I’m not convinced rerolling is better than just selling and buying the one you want, it’s a risk for sure.
Okay, we’re getting to the good stuff! There are 4 different Epic sets to complete, each with it’s own 90 OVR player that has played in at least one Outdoor game in their career.
- 90 OVR Pavel Datsyuk = x2 Maple Leafs Collectibles + x2 Red Wings Collectibles + x1 Carbon Collectible
- 90 OVR Shawn Horcoff = x2 Oilers Collectibles + x2 Jets Collectibles + x1 Carbon Collectible
- 90 OVR Brad Richards = x2 Blackhawks Collectibles + x2 Blues Collectibles + x1 Carbon Collectible
- 90 OVR Ilya Bryzgalov = x2 Penguins Collectible + x2 Flyers Collectible + x1 Carbon Collectible
I was really excited about Datsyuk, but after seeing his stats… less excited. I’d personally rather go with Brad Richards.
With that said, I haven’t actually played with any of them yet so that might change my mind.
**Every epic player set comes with an Outdoor Games Master Collectible
Once you have completed all the Epic sets and collected all 4 Master Collectibles then you will be able to complete the Master set and earn yourself a 93 OVR Willie Mitchell!
93 Willie Mitchell = 4x Outdoor Games Master Collectibles + 4 Carbon Collectibles
Yeah, I know that probably doesn’t sound very exciting to a lot of you; however, check out Willie’s stats:
An absolute beast! His shot leaves something to be desired, but that is to be expected from a Defensive Defenseman.
I’m just gonna leave this quick flash back here:
Christmas Kris Versteeg Giveaway
I plan to do a giveaway with every new Set that comes out. Similar to what I did last time.
For this set I’ll be giving away the 90 OVR Christmas Kris Versteeg that I got from the last set. Unfortunately, it will only be for Xbox One players again.
I even loaded up the player contract for whoever wins! We really go the extra mile at ChelTips…
ie. Ovechkin – Crosby – Versteeg
Also, confirm you are on Xbox.
IMPORTANT: Use a valid email address as that is how I’ll contact the winner
*If you have a question or comment about the post, feel free to add it even if you aren’t entering the giveaway 🙂
The winner is MATT! Congrats. (winner selected randomly via random.org)
Thanks to everyone who participated, many more giveaways to come.
