Then I tell them, I don't search packs because I prefer to get rookies over jersey cards.
Then I proceed to open the packs.
Looking in through the top I can already see I have a jersey card. No rookie, but cool nonetheless.
The card is a Mark Recchi jersey card which has a black swatch.... good start.
Looking in I see lots of cards, rookie potential in there.
However, no rookies to be found but I do find a 90-91 variation of Brent Seabrook. Not bad because I don't have any of these cards.
Looking into the top, something isn't right. I see three cards. One huge and thick one and two small ones. My adrenaline gets pumping because I have NEVER pulled what I think this is out of ANY pack before. Sure enough it is a patch card! And better yet, the card is of a player who is pretty darn good and has MUCH potential!
A three colour swatch with orange and white being patch pieces.
The card is numbered 06/15 and I am jacked.
Without a doubt this is the best card I have ever pulled from an UD pack and maybe the best I have ever pulled period. Not back for feeling lucky and the best part I felt was, this was all on my birthday!
Please forgive the photo, a little crude but time has not been on my blogging side lately as I finish up my last two Masters courses!
