Be Sure To Look At Those Cards Carefully

Feeling the hockey fever the other day, I stopped by my local retailer and picked up a blaster of 2011-2012 Upper Deck Victory. This set is basically done as the inexpensive opening issue to the new season, similar to what Topps does with Opening Day. I got a few good cards, like a Sidney Crosby checklist card and a couple of Evgeni Malkin inserts, but my big one almost got by me. I noticed that one of the rookie cards, Flyers defenseman Erik Gustafsson, was a little bit different than the rest. As it turns out, I pulled one of the Victory Black parallels. The odds? Only 1:1440 packs.

Not bad for 10 bucks, eh?

  1. There's something about getting a great card in a retail pack that feels like we "got over" on them.
