2011-12 Upper Deck Victory 5 Pack Rip

Dropped into the shop on the way to lunch with a friend today and picked up a few packs of the latest Victory.  The first series of cards released for the 2011-12 season; looks like they decided to put Crosby on the package again this year - sporting his infamous porn stash.  Fine by me.

Here's a rundown of the packs breaks; cards are in order from my favorite to so-on from each pull.

Pack 1

185 - Henrik Sedin.

31 - Nicklas Lidstrom / MVP.  Upper Deck aren't releasing a seperate set for MVP this year so they're included in with the Victory packs.  MVP cards fall 1:2 packs.  Lidstrom is one of only two (Mike Modano being the other) active NHL players to be drafted in the 1980s.
46 - Duncan Keith.

190 - Michal Neuvirth.
164 - Chris Stewart.

221 - Brendon Nash / Victory Rookie.  Victory Rookies can be pulled at a rate of 1:2  Never heard of Brendon Nash before this card.

Pack 2

3 - Teemu Selanne.

SOG-TT - Tim Thomas / Stars of the Game.  Stars of the Game come 1:2 as well.  This Thomas card looks awfully strange to me for some reason.

125 - Henrik Lundqvist.

111 - Mike Fisher.
174 - Luke Schenn.
108 - Cal O Reilly.

Pack 3

SOG - JT - Jonathan Toews / Stars of the Game.
6 - Jonas Hiller.
119 - Kyle Okposo.

86 - Ryan Smyth.
58 - RJ Umberger.
55 - David Jones.

Pack 4

29 - Jarome Iginla.
83 - Ryan Kesler / MVP.
150 - Kristopher Letang.

112 - Zach Parise.

12 - Andrew Ladd.  Atlanta are still represented in this set.

210 - John Moore / Victory Rookie.

Pack 5

170 - Steven Stamkos.  Stamkos leads off this pack rip; it just so happens to be the best pack that I decided to pick.

187 - Roberto Luongo.
13 - David Krejci.

GB-TH - Taylor Hall / Game Breakers.  Finally pulled a Taylor Hall card.  Going to have to pin this card as my favorite from the lot break.

70 - Dan Cleary.
192 - Jason Arnott.

That was it for the five pack break of the 2011-12 Victory.   Packs go for under a dollar so I'll be picking up more of these sooner than later.  I also received two 2010-11 Biography Of A Season cards...

BOS17 - Milan Lucic.
BOS4 - Steven Stamkos.


  1. If you end up with another Krecji that needs a home you know where to send it!!!
