HOCKEY CUBE BREAK - Last Three Packs

This is a long overdue post of the last three packs from my hockey cube I bought back in the summer. Now that I'm home for the day and it's raining cats and dogs outside I decided to take some time to write. It's much nicer writing when you can be warm inside all cozy, I can't wait for winter and hopefully some snow!

But I digress, first up is a pack of MVP from the 2006-07 season (I think it's that season).

This is a really nice looking low end set; modern, sleek and eye-catching. I know MVP's big idea is the facsimile AUTO's but for me, they just don't work. I think the set would look a lot better as a whole without the fake signatures.

I guess you could say the "HIT" of the pack is the Tim Comboy RC. You'd be right, and I might be excited if it wasn't for the fact that I don't know who the hell Tim Comboy is. 


Okay so it gets better... A mid end product from 2006-07 with a chance of "AUTOGRAPHED ROOKIE PATCH CARDS (numbered to 599 or less)!" Golly-gee this has to get me something good right?

Well not exactly... The base cards aren't bad looking and I didn't get bad names by any means but, no patch card. Wasn't like I was expecting it anyways, but one can dream right?

I did get this nice little RC though...

Now that's a name I know! Seeing Grabovski in Canadiens gear is odd but I have yet to acquire a RC from the man so this is a welcomed addition. That space below the picture where the team logo is must be where the signature goes for the signed copies. In this regular RC though, it seems like a waste of space.

Last up is the 1997-98 Pinnacle BAP set. This pack of card boasts an AUTO a pack which would guarantee my second of two AUTO's promised in the hockey cube. The first of which was a nice little signature of Matt Calvert from 2011-12 Score "Rookies and Traded".

Obviously my AUTO from the pack was the above scanned Craig Johnson. I don't know a whole heck of a lot about Craig, so I wasn't all that excited in pulling him. But hey, it's an autograph I didn't have before so it's always a positive.

For the twenty bucks I spent on this hockey cube it provided a nice quick little hockey card fix and I picked up a couple nice AUTO's in the process. Well worth it in my books!

  1. Craig Johnson was one of the players St. Louis shipped off to L.A. in the Wayne Gretzky trade, if you care about that kind of thing.
