2012-13 Panini Prime Kris Foucault Black Parallel 3/3 (Laundry Tag/Patch/Prime/Fight Strap)

With a little bit of Paypal unds left a couple of weeks ago, I decided to take a gamble on a box break of 2012-13 Panini Prime. Now, with this one, I decided to go a different route than I normally do.

Usually, it's Penguins all the way, and on a case break, it still would be, but in this case, I didn't want to take a chance. Due to the 2012-13 products featuring ZERO Penguins rookies, I knew that there was a much slimmer chance of pulling one out of such a small sample group. Instead, I decided, for a MUCH cheaper price, to pick up the other team I collect, my home-state Minnesota Wild.

$14 won me the Wild slot in the break, and I discovered it was money well spent, when the breaker pulled this card, a Kris Foucault Black Parallel, numbered 3/3, featuring a laundry tag, two patches, and a fight strap.

The cool thing here, is that I ended up with two patches, as I think, the bottom left piece was supposed to be a Prime Jersey. Either way, this is a REALLY nice looking card, which just goes to show how much luck I have had at pulling cards of the Minnesota Wild from Prime, after my first back gave me a Foucault base quad jersey/auto, a Foucault Dominion patch/auto, and a Chay Genoway Prime Ties 1/1 Redemption. I'm not sure how well this guy will end up doing in the NHL, but either way, this is a great looking card that I am happy to add to my collection.


  1. I don't collect hockey, but if I ever decide to start, I'm pretty sure that I'm going to have you break for me. You have amazing luck!!!

  2. love the auto in the upper right. it just works.
