Old School, out of the ordinary case...........(Case Complete)
I don't get to post breaks too often here for many reasons, shortage of cash and mostly working on my PC's for now but I've had this case in my possession for a few years now and have decided to crack some of it tonight and possibly over the next week or so. I will be heading out of town on on business for 4 days starting Tuesday, so it may be a bit longer.

I'm not sure how much interest there is on the boards for these but it should be a fun break.

That's right......2001-02 German Upper Deck Big Grin I think this set is cool becasue there is a lot of focus on netminders. There are quite a few in the base set as well as 1 insert set and the entire game used set is goalies. Should be a fun break.....we shall see. The toughest pulls look to be the game used at about 2 per case (1:144 packs). I hoping for 3 or more. LOL From what I hear they are really hard to come by.

Box 1
Lots of base. Only got 4 doubles from the box. Some notable that you might know, alot from the early 90's (Sorry for the size of the pics I'm doing these from my phone)
Brent Tully - captained the Canadian World Junior team to gold in 92 I believe, also played for my hometown Syracuse Crunch
Rusty Fitzgerald, Dominic Lavoie, Mark Pederson, David Emma, Darcy Werenka,David Oliver, Chris Marinucci and these guys:

Peter Douris, Dave McLlwain, Gary Shuchuk, Niklas Sundblad, and Frederic Chabot

Future Forces - I got 16 in this box(I'm assuming these are the German RC's as they look just like the Young Guns from that year) I'm not going to list them, just the scans

[Image: CB85FEF4-2A07-4D81-B148-E2A5F5BB8DDA-210...992f57.jpg]

Leonardo Conti, Christian Rohde, Leonhard Wild and Robert Muller - former Washington Capitals prospect (RIP, passed away from a brain tumor)

and this guy:

UD makes German cards? I didn't even know there was such a thing! Haven't seen them in the price guide.

They used too. I believe they did 2 years worth. 2000-01 and 2001-02.These have no foil on the base. The names are just printed on but the inserts all of foil. That was probably a cost cutting measure.I'm guessing they stopped because it was getting expensive, I'm not sure they had a plant in Germany. They were probably printed here and shipped there.
