Group Break Results Bonus: 2010-11 Score Rookies and Traded & Set of 2012-13 Black Diamond

Now that the bulk of the break has been complete, let's get on to the bonus round! With my order, I was able to select from a number of different bonus items. The two hockey ones were a set of 2010-11 Score Rookies & Traded and 18 packs of Upper Deck Victory. The decision simply came down to the fact that the Score set came with an autographed card, and the Victory packs pretty much guaranteed that there would not be one.

The set basically is a continuation of the regular-issue Score set that year. It mostly just adds in some late-season rookies and features traded players in their new uniforms. In addition to the full 99-card set, we will also get 1 autographed card and 5 gold-border parallels.

And the scans:

OK. Final order of business. Knowing that Artifacts was going to present us with an expired rookie redemption card, I promised a base set of 2012-13 Black Diamond as compensation for whoever pulled the expired card. The card went to the Colorado Avalanche, one of my teams, so instead of using that criteria, I have decided to simply random it off. Each purchased slot will receive one entry and I will randomize the list three times to determine a winner.

So, here we go.

Congratulations to Rob PBS, who walks away as the big winner of the break, not only getting the Black Diamond set, but that AWESOME autographed 1/1 from Artifacts.

I still have to organize all of these cards, which wouldn't take long, if it weren't for Between the Pipes. There's plenty of prospects and retired players without clear NHL affiliations that I'm going to have to look up to determine their final destination.

Thank you so much to everyone for participating. I hope you all had fun!


  1. Awesome! All hail the randomizer!

  2. Ps: I'm going to have to set build black diamond now :o)
