Not too long ago, I bought two more boxes of 2010-11 Artifacts.
Yes, I know that it is 2012, and that there is a 2011-12 Artifacts set. But I still really like last year’s set. I am missing numerous base cards, think the jersey cards in Artifacts are all right–and I plan on building the entire set (short prints, redemptions and all).
So, let’s take a look at this “retro” box of cards I bought:
29 Base Cards
Fortunately, I needed 13 of the 29 base cards for my set.
2 Artifacts Rookie Cards
Eric Tangradi 071 / 999 – Yay! I needed this one.
Brandon Yip 626 / 999 – Boo! I have this one.
1 Artifacts Stars
Drew Doughty 716 / 999 – Got this card in my very first box.
1 Artifacts Legends
Bobby Orr 726 / 999 – Another short print crossed off my want list.
1 Gold Parallel
Marian Gaborik 10 / 35 – I have no use for base parallels (though I wish this one was numbered 1 of 35 and not 10 of 35).
1 Rookie Redemption
#208 – Once redeemed, this will get me a rookie card of Kevin Shattenkirk.
Tundra Tandems Ryan Miller & Derek Roy 54 / 75 – Sigh…more Buffalo Sabres.
Steve Stamkos Emerald Jersey Swatch & Patch combo 26 / 50 – One of the nicest jersey cards I’ve pulled in a while.
All these jersey cards (as well as the Yip RC, Doughty SP and Gaborik parallel) are for trade.
I hope to get my next box break posted in a day or so.
