Since I didn't open a full box and only had 11 packs, I wasn't sure that I would pull any of the potential 8 hits that could have been in the box. So after sitting down at the "trading table" in the shop, I began my busting journey. For the sake of drooling over all of what I pulled, let me just show the two that I was quite happy with.
Three packs in and out popped this:
2009-10 ITG Between The Pipes Origins Gerry Cheevers Goalie Pad
This is the first memorabilia card that I have ever pulled that wasn't a jersey or patch. This is a piece of the leg blocker pad (no, I don't know which leg). I do have one stick card of Bill Guerin but I purchased that and didn't pull it from a pack. Of course, I was excited to see this. The card looks amazing in my opinion. The scan doesn't do it justice (that is so cliche'd but true). The design is so simple yet very impactful, using the grey and yellow hues on the background tie the before and after shots together nicely. I have to say that I could have pulled a better card for my PC but this one is still sweet. I haven't decided if it is going to have a permanent home in my collection yet or not so if anyone might be interested and willing to trade for something similar that would fit better in my Pittsburgh collection, I'm all ears.
Also, I plan on trying to put at least the base set of this together so if you may have doubles or ones that you don't need, I'm listening.
