Random Surprise Variety Box
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.**

RE: Random Surprise Variety Box
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!
