Random Surprise Variety Box - hockeynick1721 - 11-17-2012 12:07 PM
I got an email for a 25% coupon to Dunhams. They usually have odd hockey variety blisters/boxes there, so I thought I would give it a try.
They had a weird variety box (12 random packs with jersey card) with a 2003-04 Upper Deck Memorable Matchups #MMNN Rob Niedermayer/Scott Niedermayer showing. I thought that was crazy and picked up the box next to it to see which jersey that one had. As I flipped it over it had a 2003-04 SP Game Used #120 Peter Forsberg Jersey card that I needed! So hands down, I brought this one up to the counter. Originally, $11.99 for $8.99.
The packs inside were
4 - 05-06 Parkhurst
3 - 07-08 Ultra
5 - 97-98 Leaf (my favorite brand ever)
5 - 97-98 Pinnacle
(more than stated 12 packs)
Ultra and Pinnacle had nothing, Leaf had two Fractal Matrices (Savage Bronze and Campbell Silver).
First pack of Parkhurst had a Lundqvist Rc and last pack of Parkhurst had a Crosby RC!
$65 value total including the Forsberg
I stopped at another Dunhams to reuse the coupon and got a 6 pack lot for $4.50 which had a Lundqvist MVP rc and Lemieux Finalist card in the same pack, and a 06-07 Fleer Ovechkin Speed Machines. - $35 value total.

Good day for $15 spent.
I might go back for the other box.
**There was a Mike Dunham Rink Collection that was stuck to a base card and pealing when I tried pulling them apart. So I put them in the Freezer and after an hour I pulled them out and was able to seperate and scrap any of the paint from the base card off of the Rink Collection. The Rink Collection card looks like normal and can not tell I used a razor blade to gently scrap away the paint.**

Very nice hits, Nick! Congrats on the nice PC hit! I am interested in the Crobsy and Lundqvist Parkie RCs.

Sorry Randi, There was nothing I could use. Let me know if you get any new Red Wings or Forsbergs!

Which Dunhams do you go to... got 3 within driving distance and everytime I've been to anyone of them I never see hockey... kinda jealous. lol

There are two by me, one on Rochester road and auburn which has the oddest stuff (like the box mentioned above) and there is a mega dunhams on m59 and m53 which has more common low end junk like variety blister packs like the second break mentioned.
The one on Rochester road is where I flound blasters of 2007-08 UD1&2 for $11.99. That is where I pulled a Halak YG among others

How ironic that you pulled a Mike Dunham insert at Dunhams...a conspiracy man, I tell you!
RE: Random Surprise Variety Box - Optimus_Prime - 11-20-2012 07:42 PM
huh. I never thought of dunhams. I'll have to get there to check it out.
looking for from the 2007-08 ultra to finish up the set:
