    Two boxes 12/13 Upper Deck, a 10/11 Pinnacle and 10/11 Zenith

    In my continued thirst for cheap boxes (although probably better off buying one expensive box for every 5-6 cheap ones), I cracked a few more from Steel City a couple of weeks ago:

    12/13 Upper Deck Box 1

    YG: Bollig, Sheahan, Cornet, Ness, Cizikas, Brown
    Exclusives /100 Phaneuf
    Canvas: Getzlaf, Carter, Karlsson, Schneider
    Heroes: Perreault, Orr
    Jerseys: Erik Johnson, Hiller
    MVP: Kiprusoff, Tavares, Neal, Evander Kane
    Silver Skates: Eberle, Kreider (SP)
    And a case hit, Signature Sensations Guillaume Latendresse - sigh, remember when he was hobby hot for a couple of months?

    If I'm gonna get a case hit in a box, please let it be anything BUT a Signature Sensations. They aren't even hard-signed!

    Next box was better. Box 2

    YG: Clark, Welsh, Connolly, Nolan, Kreider, Rynnas
    Exclusives /100 Kruger
    Canvas: Hodgson, Hartnell, Burrows and YG Kreider (!)
    Heroes: Esposito and the hard-to-pull ART card (!)
    Jersey: Stepan, Suter
    MVP: RNH, Hall, Schenn, Yandle
    Silver Skates: Vanek and Crosby (SP) - also a nice hit

    So, a better case hit in Box 2, love those Art cards!

    10/11 Pinnacle was another >meh< kind of box, not bad but...:

    RC: Lindback, Kadri, Burmistrov, Johansson, FOIL Braun
    Foil parallel: Michalek, Backstrom (Wild), Gagner
    Artist Proof: Hagman
    Chemistry on Canvas: Selanne/Koivu
    City Lights Materials /499: Bryzgalov, Neal
    Saving Face: Ward
    Threads /499: Clutterbuck
    Tough Times: Williams
    Tough Times Auto: Bob Kelly

    Would have liked another auto, but Kelly is not a bad one to get. Hard-signed!

    Finally, one of my favorite boxes to break, 10/11 Zenith!

    RC non-auto: Rakhshani /999
    RC Auto: Zuccarello /999
    RC DTT parallel: Marcus Johansson /199 (ripped a big Ovechkin to get it - Sorry, Ovie!)
    Red Hot: Tavares
    Crease is the Word: Price
    Gifted Grinders: Weber
    Mozaics: Washington (no jersey)
    Rookie Roll Call: Couture
    Team Jersey: Voracek (Blue Jackets)
    Winter Warriors Jersey: Boulton

    Nothing big there, but at least I needed the MoJo and Voracek.

    Great fun and lots of pack ripping for a little over $110 USD!! Thanks for looking!
    LF this ITG Decades 1980's Autograph: AMM2 - Mark Messier CAN SP. Also need many Emblems and Numbers from ITG Decades 1980's and may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs from that set.
    PC includes Sakic, Vaive, Salming, Lafleur, Shutt and anyone named Stastny except Yan. Starting a new, limited GETZLAF PC - looking for hard-signed autos of Getzlaf and any memorabilia with print run 100 or less.

    Two Silver Skates SPs in two boxes is pretty good as well. The signature sensations from Upper Deck never seem to be that sensational!

    They should just call them "Signatures" and be honest about it! The only other one I ever pulled was even worse - Kulda! At least the Latendresse might someday sell.

    You're right, the SP Silver Skates were good; I had previously opened maybe 12-13 boxes (from different cases) and only hit an Orr and a Gold Subban.

    It wouldn't be great for marketing if Upper Deck correctly called them all "Excess" instead of "Sensational"

    Wantlist:Hidden Content

    The want list at this link features what I need of Giroux, Couturier, Ottawa Senators, and Miscellaneous set. If you have nothing from it I will consider CFL cards, current Senators, Carey Price, Guy Lafleur, Patrick Roy (Habs), vintage hockey (pre 1970) and trade bait.

    Thanks and Happy Trading.
