I went to my LCS yesterday & was itching to buy something. He had opened boxes of older hockey behind the counter. While I was debating on whether to open up some regular UD Hockey from 2007 - 2011, I noticed he had a box of 10-11 SP Authentic with a few packs left. I bought the last 3 packs for $18. The first pack yielded...nothing. The second yielded...a Mikko Koivu Holo FX. The last pack yielded...a decoy...at least what both the store owner & I originally thought was a decoy. Upon turning it over, I discovered it was a redemption for a 10-11 Limited Autographed Patch Rookie #/100 of Thomas McCollum! Since I'm on the east coast, (Long Island baby!), I had no idea who that was, until the owner took out a Beckett & looked up the card. He's a Red Wings goalie & the card books $100! Not bad at all!
