My last box of 2010-11 Upper Deck Series One. Would it get me some good cards? Let’s find out.
Results for Box #3
169 Base Cards – Thankfully, all 169 cards were different from each other.
6 Young Guns Rookie Cards – Eric Tangradi, J.T. Wyman, Tommy Wingels, Zac Dalpe, Arturs Kulda and Nick Leddy. All a bunch of “Scrub Guns,” as I like to call them, but I’m really happy that I got a Nick Leddy RC. He started the season with the Blackhawks, but is back in Rockford for some more seasoning. I have high hopes for Leddy.
6 20th Anniversary Parallels – Andrew Cogliano, Pascal Dupuis, Mikael Samuelsson, Mark Streit, Dion Phaneuf and Mikail Grabovski. As I’ve said before, if anyone gets these parallels and wants to trade them, let me know.
2 Hockey Heroes – I got HH7 and HH8.
All-World Team – The two All-World Team cards I pulled were Mike Richards and Nicklas Backstrom.
UD Game Jersey Ray Emery – Emery is still in rehabilitation after surgery in April, where he had hip surgery. He had a disease called avascular necrosis, where the bone cells die, causing the bones to collapse. It is the same surgery that did-in Bo Jackson‘s career. Fortunately, doctors were able to removed the diseased tissue before it spread.
UD Game Jersey Drew Stafford – Any Sabres fans wanna trade for this?
But wait! There’s more!
UD Exclusives Taylor Hall, numbered 061 / 100 – WOW, a limited-edition card of this year’s best second best third best fourth best best rookie. Do I sell it? Do I wait and see if Hall becomes a superstar…and then sell it?
In three boxes, I did all right: I got a complete set and 18 different Young Guns–including one “high end” RC. So, I did as good as I had hoped. The Exclusive Edition Hall card was just icing on the cake.
I am trying to finish a second base set, as well as acquire the other 32 Young Guns I need.
