BIRTHDAY! 12 Box Break Featuring the Great One and a Nice Surprise!
So if the title didn't give it away at all, it is the illustrious IrbeFan4Life's birthday. To celebrate, I was given a total of 12 boxes to open, among many other things. Of course, I also had to drive on treacherous snowy roads with the country's worst drivers(Edmonton)...joy!
Anyways, with what I got today, my complaints are moot.
Let's get started with a box of 1997-98 Pinnacle Beehive. Impressive to say the least!
Roberto Luongo, Andy Bathgate, Johnny Bucyk
Next up was two boxes 2001-02 Pacific Titanium. Not bad, not great, sort of run of the mill for what I am used to.
Mark Bell/Steve Sullivan
Mark Bell/Eric Daze
Markus Naslund/Daniel Alfredsson (x2)
Marc Savard/Roman Turek
Simon Gagne/John LeClair
Rod Brind’Amour/Erik Cole
Martin Straka/Michal Rozsival
Jiri Dopita/Roman Cechmanek
Marty Turco/Ed Belfour
Felix Potvin/Ziggy Palffy
Martin Straka/Michal Rozsival (#/302)
Next up was a little bit more fun, three boxes 2001-02 Private Stock
Bobby Holik, Boris Mironov, Jarome Iginla, Mats Sundin, Teemu Selanne, Mike Richter, Byron Dafoe, Tony Amonte, Milan Kraft, Derian Hatcher, Pierre Turgeon, Oleg Tverdovsky, Marc Savard, Tie Domi, Sean Burke
Eric Lindros (x2)
Next up came 4 boxes of 2002-03 Titanium for the elusive hunt for the Irbe patch #/21
Scott Stevens, Geoff Sanderson, Toby Petersen, Fredrik Modin, Peter Bondra, Pavol Demitra, Scott Walker, Ron Tugnutt, Johan Hedberg, Owen Nolan, Rod Brind’Amour, John Leclair, Miikka Kiprusoff (x2), Rob Blake, Jason Williams, Roman Turek, Marian Gaborik, Patrik Stefan, JP Dumont, Dan Cloutier, Scott Gomez, Roberto Luongo, Daniel Alfredsson, Martin Havlat, Jose Theodore, Sergei Varlamov, Sergei Fedorov
Gary Roberts (DISGUSTING PATCH...SHOWN AT THE END)
1 Box 2011-12 Ultimate Collection
Nothing notable, run of the mill, one redemption.
1 Box 2011-12 SP Game Used
You are all familiar with my luck from the product, and sure enough, I pulled through again. The hit will...be seen at the end as well :) Aren't I the worst?
Next up is a top four. #4, 3, 2 are together in the scan. Note the insane Roberts patch...yay to patch premiums!
And the big hit from my box of 2011-12 SPGU. If you think this is a small hit, then...I don't even know what to say.
Wayne Gretzky JSY/AU #4/15:
And finally, I sent a TTM request to Theoren Fleury back in June and had lost all hope for ever getting my item back. Today...my birthday of all days, it showed up in the mail. A nice custom auto and a partial addition to my Irbe "In Other(s) Words" project. He wrote an excellent comment but failed to sign it at the end. It's still going into the collection, but doesn't feel complete.
So, yay! Happy birthday to me!
