Tin Break - - 2011-12 Upper Deck Series I
Since you can go all over and see the base cards, I figured I would just show what I was able to pull out of this one. I picked up one of these when they first hit the market too but I literally (yes, literally) can't find the box. How a tin full of cards disappears I will never know. It may have been misplaced into the dreaded Card Garage which if that is the case, it might be gone forever.
So here goes:
Gesundheit!! These are seeded about 1 in 4 tins in the retail so a nice pull even though the subject could be questionable. I'm kidding of course. Mika isn't a bad player at all and is a pretty highly touted prospect for his size and physical play as a defensive minded forward. In fact, if any of you have been watching the World Junior Tournament, he scored the game winning goal for Sweden to win the gold medal. I wonder if his cards will skyrocket now??? Not likely, I'm sure.
Again, these are a little more cash than the traditional retail blaster but you do get the extra Canvas card and the Jumbo. Plus you will get an extra Young Gun or two over what is in a normal blaster. I only wish the tins were more practical to store cards in. If you leave the insert in there, you can get a couple small stacks of cards but without the insert, cards fly around all over the place. If you can imagine, I have way too many empty tins lying around.
