2011-12 Upper Deck Victory Double Ripper

Just a small double pack rip post from the latest Upper Deck Victory before I head back to my hometown for a week vacation as summer dwindles down.  I plan on leaving tomorrow evening and taking the five hour-long trek via TCH with my fiance and three cats.

I hear a lot about these cards, mostly negative comments from the double Victory logos on the front to the lack of worthy inserts.  For 99 cents a pack I don't expect to pull game jerseys or serialized signatures and the look of the cards have grown on me pack-by-pack, especially the clear cuts of the players (I'm not even really sure what "clear cut of the players" mean to be honest, but try to put it together) on the cards.

Pack 1

Rick Nash - 56.  This Nash card is an example of what I mean by 'clear cut of the players on the card'.  For some reason the card just seems to flow.  My favorite from this pack break.

Matt Duchene / Stars Of The Game - SOG-MD.  I was thinking to myself earlier today about how Colorado just aren't the powerhouse that they use to be.  At the moment Duchene is a very important part of their organization.

Alexandre Burrows - 188.



Michael Frolik - 48.
Antoine Vermette - 59.
Alexander Burmistrov - 10.

Pack 2


Mike Richards -133.
Pavel Datsyuk / Stars Of The Game - SOG-PD.

Tyler Myers - 23.  My favorite card from the second pack break; Myers has become one of my favorite d-men in the league.

Patrick Sharp - 43.  Another example of a card that has flow.

Alex Tanguay - 30.
Dustin Byfuglien - 9.
