2010-11 Artifacts Box Break #4

My fourth and final–for now–box of Artifacts. Here’s what I got:

31 Base Cards

Let’s hope Big Z and the Bruins can beat Vancouver! By the way, after opening 4 boxes I did not get a complete base set. Boo.

2 Artifacts Rookies

Maxime Fortunus 007 / 999 – Damn! I traded for this card already, a few months ago. But it gets worse…

Kyle Wilson 622 / 999 – Arrrrgggghhhh! Another double that I picked up in the same trade.

2 Artifacts Stars

Ilya Kovalchuk 411 / 999 – I already have this card too.

Jonathan Towes 233 / 999 – Ugh. Yet another double for me. But at least it is of a player I like and collect.

Now what really annoys me is that fellow blogger Joshua (Dodger Bobble) opened a box of Artifacts and got the same 4 short prints, which he then traded to me. Coincidence? Or crummy collation? I’m guessing the latter. Sure, I’m bound to get doubles here and there. But both of us getting the same short prints? Come on, UD…shuffle the deck a little better next time.

1 Rookie Redemption

#234 Wild Card – When I redeem this, it will get me a rookie card of Brandon Piri of the Blackhawks.

Autofacts Autographs

Andre Markov autograph – Well, at least it isn’t another Buffalo Sabres’ player.

Jersey Cards

Pascal Leclaire (Emerald) 46 / 50 – The bottom edges and logo are green.

Mike Green Frozen Artifacts 035 / 150 – Not sure how I feel about two red swatches on the same card. Seems kind of redundant, don’t you think?

But wait…what’s this….?

Alexander Ovechkin / Evgeni Malkin Tundra Tandems Emerald jersey card 31 / 35 – Sweeeeeet! A jersey card of Ovie and Gino.

Anyway, the jersey and short print cards (rookies, stars) are available for trade if anyone is interested.

  1. Crappy thing about the collation. I am sure you will have no problem parlaying that Ovi-Geno for some SP's you are missing!

    You seem to have a lot of luck with the game-used cards but no luck with RC's!

  2. wow ! how the heck did you catch ovie and malky, from 2 different teams, on a jersey card. good catch buddy 🙂 I really like that card, im glad they makem :). goodluck catchin more brother !
