Hey guys, I picked up a random box of 2009-10 Upper Deck Series 2 for 50% off earlier today. 12 packs included in the box, 5 cards per pack.
Out of the 60 cards I pulled I'll post my top ten favorites from the break under the cut. Not a lot of hits in these boxes and the photography on most of the base cards look pretty flat.
Devan Dubnyk / Young Guns #462 - The best card from the break; how well Dubnyk will fair in the NHL is still up in the air but these days this card goes for about $5-11 on eBay.
Jordan Staal #299 - From the break I received three Penguins including Staal; Kunitz and Dupuis being the others.
Tyler Myers / Victory Rookie #303 - Upper Deck thought that it would be a grand idea to include cards from another set in these Upper Deck packs, I'm not sure how I feel about it - but I did pull a rookie card of one my favorite defencemen in the league.
Michael Grabner / Victory Rookie #339 - Grabner finished his rookie year with 34 goals and 52 points, his goal total led all rookies, as well as the Islanders. The card includes a nice photo as well.
James Van Riemsdyk / Rookie Debut #RD2 - Meh. Other than the fact I like Van Riemsdyk, the insert design doesn't do it for me.
Marian Hossa #361
Ilya Kovalchuk #330
Cam Ward / Playoff Performers #PP2
Patrick Marleau #402
Jakub Kindl / Young Guns #465
Overall I was sorta disappointed in the break, I was looking forward to pulling an auto or memotabilia card - but no dice. But for a $12 pick-up I don't think I lost out, what do you think?
