Random Review: 2 hockey blaster boxes

February 22, 2016 § Leave a comment

Hope that everyone had a great weekend everyone. I was busy this weekend helping a friend move – something I will probably be doing a few more times. After helping my friend move, I could really use a glass of wine or two. Unfortunately, but probably fortunately for my body, I gave up alcohol for Lent. So I traded one vice for another and bought two clearance blaster boxes from Target on my way home.

The boxes:
2013-14 Upper Deck Hockey Artifacts
2013-14  Panini Score Hockey

The big grabs the boxes:
An expired Artifacts Rookie Redemption for Capitals – if anyone knows if Upper Deck will redeem this, please tweet me – https://twitter.com/angryccollector.
Emerson Etem Rookie numbered to 999
Bryan Trottier numbered to 399

Countless Score gold cards with the highlight being a Nail Yakupov Rookie Gold
Michal Jordan Hot Rookies – sorry had to
Martin Brodeur Netcam insert
Brandon Yip Black

Overall:
I finally got to open an Artifacts box, which is something that I have been wanting for a while. I would say my opinion hinges on the redemption being valid but the reality is, it is probably a crappy rookie. I am very disappointed and could still use that glass of wine. I am over blaster boxes as their is no value in them. I saved a Christmas gift card specifically for a time like this so at least I didn’t lose any money from it. I have a hunger for an Upper Deck box so I can try for a Jack Eichel or Connor McDavid Young Guns card, although I did pull an Oilers number one pick rookie card.
