Cracked a few boxes...
Well, like many people I know, last year sucked badly for me. I figured what better way to kick off what has already been a fantastic new year than with the one thing that I enjoy most (within reason...), breaking boxes! D&A had some nice deals so I picked up some stuff and here are the results...they forgot one of my 10/11 Score R&T boxes as well so weíll see how that pans out...
10/11 Zenith Blaster
10/11 Zenith Red Hot #46 Jonathan Toews (damaged...)
10/11 Zenith Winter Warriors Prime #WB Wade Belak (blue/yellow) 7/50
Not bad for a blaster, very cool Belak but the banged up Toews sucks...guess Iíll add it to the pile of damaged 10/11 Panini stuff I have...
10/11 Score R&T Box
10/11 Score R&T Gold #560 Taylor Hall, #563 Brayden Schenn, #575 Craig Anderson

10/11 Score Signatures #618 Travis Hamonic
10/11 Score R&T HR #659 Taro Tsujimoto SP
Not bad for a freebie and the Hamonic auto isnít even damaged! The Taro is pretty sweet and the write up on the back is priceless...also have a bazillion Hot Rookies I wonít list...

11/12 Certified Rookie Jsy Au #259 Eddie Lack (green) 235/299
1st box sucked though the Rundblad looks pretty sharp...kinda surprised to pull two Starting Six cards and the PC Lack in the 2nd box for sure. I needed the Lack and I had been holding out for a green one so this finally tops my other and only EPIC PC pull of...11/12 Victory Rookie Eddie Lack haha. So there it is...fun break but nothing SUPER awesome, hopefully I can land some PC with something I pulled...everything is for trade (especially for stuff in my rookie goalie wantlist!~see sig) and will be scanned and integrated into my tradelist in a few days....PMs work best and many thanks for the look!
Interested in the Gerbe what would you be looking for for it?
Need Kassian, Kane JSY, and Kane AU!
Two starting six in one box? That's sick!
