2010-11 Upper Deck Black Diamond Pack Rip 1/3

Wanted to dip into something new today so I went and picked up some of the latest Black Diamond from Upper Deck.  The possibility of pulling something exciting seems endless and worthwhile - Quad Diamonds, jerseys, autos and die-cuts all sound good in my book.

5 cards per pack, as per usual check under the cut to find a rundown of the rip.
The 2010-11 Upper Deck Black Diamond look is similar to some of their previous years; shiny backgrounds behind the players, vertical sidebar depicting the name of the player and number of diamonds that card is valued at and whatnot.

Chris Pronger #91 Double Diamond - Cutting to the chase, this Pronger Double Diamond would probably be my best pull out of these quintuplet of cards.  I was never much of a Pronger fan but can acknowledge that he has had a fantastic career in the blue liner department.

Ville Leino #7 - Leino had a career high season in 2010-11 scoring 19 goals and 53 points.  I think he will continue to make an impact this year.

Blake Wheeler #34 - Drafted 5th overall by the Coyotes in 2004 and now a Jet; looks as if he has had a steady career stat wise but I've always wondered why EA Sports always rated him so damn high.

Nathan Horton #10 - 3rd overall pick in the 2003 Draft and Stanley Cup Champ; feels like I've been pulling Nathan Horton cards left right & center.

Wojtek Wolski #3 - Another traded player since their Black Diamond card was released that comes from this pack.
