AWWWWWW, YEAH! Upper Deck Series Two was released earlier this week. I picked up 3 boxes. Here are the results of my first box break:
153 Base Cards
Series 2 is so full of parallels and inserts that you get about 12 less base cards in a box than you do in Series 1.
6 Young Guns
At least the number of Young Guns is consistently 6 per box. I got rookie cards of Robert Bortuzzo, Gabriel Bourque, Harry Zolnierczyk, Marcus Foligno, Zack Kassian and the Young Guns Checklist.
1 UD Exclusive
Shawn Thornton, numbered 75/100.
3 UD Canvas
What a great portrait of T.J. Oshie. I also pulled Canvas cards of Jeff Skinner and Derek Roy.
1 UD Canvas Young Guns
Calgary Flames goaltender Leland Irving.
3 Hockey Heroes
I got Hockey Heroes cards of Bobby Hull, Johnny Bower and this awesome painting card of Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita. Apparently, you get this card card 1 in every 600 packs. I was going to keep it anyway, but knowing that it’s extra-rare and of two Blackhawks legends makes it that much cooler.
2 Game Used Jersey Cards
A UD Game Jersey card of Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jack Johnson.
A Rookie Materials card of Montreal Canadiens center Louis Leblanc.
6 Victory Update Cards
Maxime Talbot, Kris Versteeg, Jeff Carter, David Booth, Brayden Schenn and Mike Richards.
6 Victory Update Rookie Cards
Raphael Diaz, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Craig Smith, Tim Erixon, Ryan Johanson and Matt Read.
2 MVP Update Cards
Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Ilya Bryzgalov.
1 MVP Update Rookie Card
Gabriel Landeskog of the Colorado Avalanche.
1 O-Pee-Chee Update Card
Seymon Varlamov. One down, 9 more of these non-rookie OPC update cards to go.
2 O-Pee-Chee Update Rookie Cards
Another RC of RNH! Awesome! I also got Mika Zibanejad.
1 O-Pee-Chee Retro Parallel
Sean Courtier. This is a parallel of his Marquee Rookie card.
So far, so good. I am going to pursue the O-Pee-Chee and Victory parallel sets, so I have a few more reasons besides Young Guns to buy several boxes. Stay tuned for my next break.
