Some Rare Bears Attacked My Xmas Boxes (11/12 S2, Elite, Contenders)
Got some Xmas boxes under the tree today, and had a blast opening them up... I wish I could have seen the actual prices my parents paid for them, because I think they were a little high... Nonetheless, it was a good, fun break, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed, despite the outrageous amount of bad playoff memories caused by some of the cards pulled...
2011/12 UD Series 2:

2011/12 Contenders: I got stamped!
Devante Stamp-Pelly Calder Contenders /800 Auto Redemption
Viktor Stalberg NHL Ink
And... I left a couple cards out.
At #2, remember when I said I always get patches instead of booklets out of Contenders when people get booklets and are disappointed they got no patch? Wellllll I gotz me a patch again I wanted a book... is that too much to ask for
Tomas Vincour 16/100 Beautiful 3 colour with stitching, breaks etc. The condition is mehhhh. Lots of white dings, but eh, it's what you get with all black cards. Not a big name, but a former Vancouver Giant so I am happy :)
At the tough #1 spot:
The pack was extraordinarily thick, so thick that I assumed it was a Prime Numbers. I opened the pack and saw a thick card, and was shocked to see the jagged edges... not there on the right side. So, I was like OMG I HAVE A PRIME NUMBER AUTOGRAPH PATCH BEST PULL EVER... to only find out that it was square. Well, it's not a huge name, but it's a nice "prime" Patch:
and it's #/25! Pretty nice pull :D
That's about it, all is being kept for now and will be sold in person at shows and stuff for the most part, unless it is to be tracked that is.
Oh, also found this strange looking base card. Any info on it?

Solid pickups. I'm curious, will that strange looking card go missing if you bring it to DC?
