Like box #1, I got two Penguins. These two are of Sidney Crosby and Larry Murphy. The Crosby, of course, will be added to my Sidney Crosby Collection (base/hits), and the Murphy is cool, because they went with the retro logo on the card, to match the era he played for the team.
I lucked out on my serial-numbered base cards, in that all of them are low-numbered parallels. I pulled two Sapphire parallels, of Jason Pominville 11/85 and Ilya Bryzgalov 1/85, as well as a Team Canada Ruby parallel of Joe Thornton (20/299).
I got three rookies out of this box. My base rookie was of Edmonton Oilers defenseman Justin Schultz (97/999), and I also got a Ruby parallel of Damien Brunner (155/299), who signed with the New Jersey Devils in the off-season. My Rookie Redemption is for the St. Louis Blues, but it is too early in the season to guess who that may be.
The first of my three memorabilia cards is a Milan Hejduk base card parallel, featuring two jersey swatches, numbered 57/125. I don't usually like getting two of the same color, but with the Avalanche sweaters, I'm ok with that.
My Treasured swatches card from this box is a dual jersey card of Sean Couturier. As a Penguins fan, I hate pulling Flyers cards of anyone not named Max Talbot, but at least I get different colored swatches with this one.
My autograph is an Autofacts card of Matt Martin. Unlike the Evander Kane I pulled from Box #1, most autographs you will find are from the Autofacts insert set. A majority of them are of lesser players, but there are also Autofacts cards of Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr, so there is still a chance to strike gold with these.
The hit of this box is a Tundra Trios card of Alex Ovechkin, Mike Green, and Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals. Any time you can pull an Ovechkin, it's a great break, but what's with Mike Green? Out of four boxes of Artifacts in the past two years, I have pulled jersey cards of his in three. At this rate, he'll be passing Daniel Alfredsson as "The Guy I Always Seem to Pull" in no time.
That's it for this box. I didn't quite get the monster hit I did last time, but it wasn't completely unsuccessful either. Artifacts is always a fun break, and I'm sure I'll be coming back for more real soon.
