Remember when I got myself a 24-pack blaster box of Upper Deck's 2016-17 MVP hockey cards three days ago? Well, oops, I did it again:
Considering I didn't even buy them at the same store... I was hugely disappointed with the card selection, which went like this:
Eight "High Numbers" cards, including the same two retired Hall Of Famers - Bobby Hull and Al MacInnis - but also doubles of Filip Forsberg, Alex Ovechkin, and Henrik Zetterberg, as well as Patrice Bergeron, Jordan Eberle and Roberto Luongo:
David Desharnais, Andrei Markov and Alex Galchenyuk:
I would probably have been satisfied pulling these cards one pack at a time, over the course of a few weeks; however, in two separate boxes purchased just days apart in opposite ends of the city, it feels like a bit of a letdown in terms of "hits".
My grade on the look remains, however, with a 8/10.
Selection gets a 6/10.
