I recently bought 5 boxes of 2010-11 Score Hockey cards. Each box contains 36 packs, and each pack has 7 cards.
I’ll get up a full review once I have the cards sorted into a set. Until then, I’ll post what I get in each box.
Results for Box #1:
184 Base Cards – Crosby was probably the best “base” card I got in this box.
18 Hot Rookies – Well, I haven’t hopped on the P.K. Subandwagon just yet…but he’s probably the best RC in the set, not counting the Rookie Redemption.
33 Glossy Base Cards – They look just like the base cards, only they are glossier. No point in scanning them, since you have to “feel” the difference.
3 Glossy Hot Rookies – The 3 I got were Bobby Butler, Derek Smith and Nick Spaling (that guy again?)
1 20th Anniversary Parallel – Looks (and feels) just like a base card, but has “20th Anniversary” stamped in gold foil. Kind of pointless.
6 Playoff Heroes – This one is of former Chicago Blackhawks player Dustin Biff-OOG-lee-un.
3 Net Cam – For the wide-angle lens lover in all of us.
2 Sudden Death – ‘Cuz it ain’t over ’til it’s over.
1 Franchise – All right. One of my guys.
1 Hot Rookies Autograph – It’s a sticker ‘graph, but I don’t care. To get an autographed card in a one-dollar pack of cards is almost surreal.
Noticeably Absent was the Rookie Redemption card. You are supposed to get 1 RC Redemption per box, which is redeemable for a card of a player who debuted early this season.
The whole reason I decided to buy boxes of Score cards–instead of getting a complete set from eBay–was to get these redemption cards.
For those who were also shorted on their redemption cards, you can fill out an online request form with Panini here. You will have to create an account on their website if you don’t have one.
Stay tuned for the next break.
