Group Break Results Part 3: 2009-10 Upper Deck Black Diamond

Here we are with the final full box of hockey cards in this group break, 2009-10 Upper Deck Black Diamond. This product promises two quad-jersey cards and one Gemography autographed card, among their tiered Diamond cards. Each box promises Two Quad Diamonds (one of which is a rookie), six Triple Diamonds (three of which are rookies) and six Dual Diamonds. There are also two Quad Diamond Die-Cut Insert cards in each box. There are also colored parallels, including ruby /100, gold /10, and platinum /1. There are also some Hardware Heroes cards, which are foiled die-cut cards with the players photo embedded in the center of the card with a clear acetate material, inserted at a rate of two per case.

We will definitely get the promised hit, but there is potential for a whole lot more.

Let's see how we did:

Here are the scans:

Clark Gillies Platinum 1/1

Brandon Dubinsky Gemography auto, Ivan Vishnevskiy Rookie Ruby 57/10, Jordan Staal Quad Jersey, Cristobal Huet Quad Jersey

Quad Diamond: Bobby Hull, Sergei Shirokov Rookie, Joe Sakic Die-Cut, Jarome Iginla Die-Cut

Triple Diamond: Phil Esposito, Harry Howell, Jeff Carter, Ivan Vishnevskiy Rookie, Matt Beleskey Rookie, Jay Rosehill Rookie

Mats Sundin, Ryan Smyth, Brenden Morrow, Alexandre Burrows, Cam Ward, Bob Bourne

Well, there you have it. Three boxes and TWO 1/1s!!! Can't do much better than that!

I'll conclude the break tomorrow with our bonus box of 2010-11 Score Rookies & Traded, which will add  one more auto to the pile. See you all then!


  1. Another great box! I can't complain! But this video is marked private, so I couldn't see the break.

    1. Sorry. I did that after uploading to keep it under wraps until I posted it. I just forgot to undo it when I posted it. It should be fixed now.

  2. Yea, man. So many 1 of 1's!

    1. No kidding! And I'm SO glad I got to at least keep one of them.
