====================================================================I'm not sure if this is considered a hobby box or not, but it was on sale at my local card shop, and I could afford it, so I got it.
I decided to scan 9 base cards to show, and comment on- a full page, plus the inserts and Young Guns. I will probably do a full "page" of base cards from each Box Break Review going forward, unless I really need to post about more of them.
Now, I also scanned the rookies...I like what UD does with the NHL for the most part, but short printing the rookie cards in the flagship set is not one of them. I pulled three rookies in my tin:
The oversize box topper is actually a card from series 1.
There were also two cards from the UD Portraits insert. I'm not really sure what the point of them is. I have nothing against the players I got- it's just, well...kind of like UD phoned it in with these.
This was a very enjoyable box break- it got me less than half way to the complete series 2 and it was only $30, so I'm considering getting another.
This was the first Upper Deck sports box I have opened since late 2006. It's been over 10 years, which is pretty hard to believe. But since the NBA took away their license during the 2009-10 season, and I was away from that sport from 2006-12, I have not had much to choose from. That is certainly not going to be the case going forward. I did do two boxes of the Captain America set (on sale for the price of one!) and one of the Thor set, all retail boxes. I still need cards from both of those sets too.
