I promised the boys that we would break some packs with our "winnings," so I headed over to the LCS to see what they had. Nothing new, but there was one box of Series 1, and one box of Series 2 sitting on the shelf, and for the price, I couldn't pass. I picked the Series 1 box, but it turned out to be the French version, so I opted for the Series 2 box instead. I think it turned out to be a solid decision on my part. I sat at the lunch table with my wife and our three boys, and we each pulled out a bunch of packs to open. It was a blast! We always have fun, but this one was unexpectedly excellent.
Anyway, here's what we ended up with...
452 Nick Bonino
458 Jon Matsumoto
459 Evan Brophey
470 Matt Kassian
473 Linus Klasen
496 Johan Harju
Nothing spectacular, but six YG's, no complaints here.
20th Anniversary Retros:
259 Ben Eager
340 Alexei Ponikarovsky
396 Kimmo Timonen
428 Dominic Moore
431 Tyler Bozak
462 Justin Mercier Young Guns
Again, nothing mind-blowing, but still a decent box.
Here were the bigger hits of the box...
Henrik Lundqvist Game Jersey
James Wisniewski UD Exclusives #032/100
Dana Tyrell Rookie Exclusives
and my first UD Exclusives High Gloss of Ray Whitney #06/10
A solid box overall, despite none of those cards being for my PC.
My 7-year old, Timmy, while opening the packs with us, blurts out the phrase "Hey, a Bobby Orr autograph" which I thought couldn't possibly be right.
I was wrong.
Now there's a sweet PC hit. To think, if that UD Series 1 had been the English version, I wouldn't have this card sitting in my hands right now. Timmy says that I can keep it for my collection, as long as I promise to get him a Brad Marchand autograph for his. I think I can manage that.
