Last week's edition was a little different than normal though. It wasn't so much a "pack wars" situation, more like a team-style group break.
Up for grabs...the contents out of one box of Panini Prime.
The way it worked was for $7.50, you'd get to pick a team out of a hat and if any cards are pulled from your team - you get them.
It's gambling - hockey card style.
I knew that my guy wasn't in this product, but decided to participate anyways. Wouldn't you know it, the team I picked....Vancouver.
Want to see what I got? I knew that you would.
With the card being revealed ever so slowly (to add to the excitement, tension, frustration...call it what you want), the blue and green gave it away pretty quick. I just didn't know what player.

That's a nice little card. For $7.50 - even better.
Too bad it wasn't a Sedin though. I could have faired well in trade if it were Danny or Hank.
And $7.50 is a bit of a stretch. After all, I did participate in more than one pack wars go around that night. Let's just say, if I break even....I'll be happy.
