Last week I finally got to Target and was able to pick up some current season hockey cards. I nabbed a blaster of 2016-17 Upper Deck Series 1 some random loose packs, and a 100 card Fairfield repack. Since I gave the blaster it's own post, and I have not opened the random packs yet, since I need to scan them first, I thought I would post some highlights of the repack.
Funny story about the picture- I forgot to take a photo before I opened it, so I filled it with the cards I had on hand so it would look about right. The box now has hockey, NASCAR and basketball cards in it...and one 1988 Topps baseball card which I had on hand for some reason. I made sure to make the top card the actual top card at least.
I got 80 new NHL cards, 10 new minor league cards and 1 new Multi-sport card. I added 19 new people to my collection and I added the following sets to my collection:
- 1991-92 7th Inning Sketch QMJHL
- 1991-92 7th Inning Sketch WHL
- 1995 Classic
- 1995-96 Emotion
- 2002-03 Be A Player First Edition (card was damaged by sticking to another card on both sides)
- 2007-08 Ovation
- 2010-11 Score
- 2011-12 O-Pee-Chee (also the newest card in the repack)
- 2011-12 Upper Deck
The oldest cards were 2 1989-90 Topps and one 1989-90 O-Pee-Chee (which was one of the duplicates) and the two sets listed from 2011-12 were the newest cards in the repack.
Most of the cards in the pack were from 1990-91 through 1994-95, and I'm sure that most repacks have similar contents. Only one of the cards was not already posted to the Trading Card Database.
Now, since there were a lot of new cards, it would take me a long time to get them all scanned and posted, and I have a lot of things I want to scan and post, so I am just going to pick some highlights to scan that I want to specifically mention or just like the photo. By the way, 91 new cards is the most I've gotten from a repack in years...over a decade. I've been collecting the NBA for so long that if I get more than 5 new cards out of a repack then I consider it a win. It'll probably take me a while before I get to that point in the NHL, but I am sure eventually the repacks will give me more duplicates than new, considering mostly the repacks are all early 1990s. While that is my favorite time in cards, there's only so many made and eventually you get most of them.
red spots on it. I've been advised they may be mold spots, I hope not. I've sequestered them in a sealed team bag just in case.
before. I really like it. Bonus points for being a Senators card. I have not seen them play yet, but I've been saying for quite some time that they have my favorite team logo in all of sports. Being a big fan of ancient Rome that should not be a surprise.
I digress. Why this one matters: He's a one hit wonder, this is the only card he ever got, according to the Trading Card Database. (there are some minor league sets still awaiting checklists) He becomes the first hockey player in my collection that I'm aware of who is a One Hit Wonder. He may not be the actual first- but he's the first one I'm aware of and that was enough to give him a scan.
Here's a list of the cards I added to my collection in order. I copy and pasted it from my Excel chart and the spacing didn't really copy but you should be able to get a pretty good idea of what my collection files look like. The duplicates I got are NOT included in this list.
