2011 Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Champions Set

Upper Deck is releasing a boxed set commemorating the Boston Bruins victory in the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. It is available for order now, but will not ship for a few weeks. Priced at $19.99 (plus shipping), the set will consist of 31 cards. The breakdown is as follows:

  • 25 cards featuring the best Bruins during the season
  • 5 “Season Highlight” cards
  • 1 card of the Bruins celebrating their win after Game 7

Twenty bucks seems kind of steep for only 30 cards. Then again, I love this idea. When the Blackhawks won the Cup last year, I hoped that a set like this would be released commemorating their championship. Back in the day, Pro Set used to put out Super Bowl commemorative sets that featured every player on both teams in the big game; I always wanted a hockey card maker to do the same for the teams in the Cup Finals.

You can buy the set–and find out more about it–here at the Upper Deck store.

I plan on purchasing this set. Is anyone else thinking about buying it?

  1. I think $20 is a bit steep as well, but how can I resist? I will DEFINITELY be picking one up.

  2. I will pass for sure…Bought a box of All-Goalies for the same price and received 106 cards including one jersey card. Much better deal in my books.

  3. As a fellow Hawks fan, it kind of irritates me that they didn't put out a similar set last year. Granted, the price is a little too much for the content but who wouldn't buy one when their team wins it all? I would have just bought one less blaster at Target.

  4. Hey guys, I am a first time commenter but a long time reader. Sal you do an amazing job with your blog. I hope to see you have continued success wherever your blog may take you.
