2013-14 Score Hockey Jumbo Box Break - Pack #9

9th pack, and I would say easily the best pack of the box.  A nice way to celebrate the 400 post milestone.

63 - Roman Horak
42 - Tyler Myers
109 - Gabriel Landeskog - A great celebratory photograph from a Kitchener Rangers alum starts this parade of scans.
8 - Sheldon Souray
53 - Luke Adam
76 - Chad LaRose
90 - Dan Ellis
14 - Devante Smith-Pelly
172 - Daniel Cleary
143 - Jared Boll
168 - Valtteri Filppula
177 - Jonas Gustavsson
191 - Devan Dubnyk - Stacking the pads!
130 - Marian Gaborik - The best hockey player in the 2/14 binders. At least among those I'm certain of that fall into the category.
146 - Ryan Garbutt
FG-1 - Nail Yakupov - Yup. That's a pretty good pull for the first goal subset. For a split second I was wondering what Fred Ewanuick was doing with a card in this set.

Team 8s - Jordan Staal, Ryan Murphy, Artem Anisimov, Jack Johnson, Frans Nilsen, Thomas Hickey, Nicklas Backstrom, Philipp Grubauer. Here's the promised 8s relic. I'm wondering if it was intentional, or the swatches just turned out that way with a white on the top and a dark colour on the bottom. Anyhow, the one here I'm happiest to see is the Ryan Murphy swatch. He's yet another Kitchener Rangers alum, and hopes to follow in the footsteps of Jeff Skinner with success in Carolina. The connection between these teams? They're all division rivals this season. Although the card # isn't too accurate. They're the Metropolitan Division, not the Atlantic.
588 - Martin Brodeur Season Highlights (Gold)
561 - Oilers Leaders (Gold)
561 - Oilers Leaders - Both of these are dupes, but I know a Michigan fan that will appreciate the Mike Brown portion of this card.
557 - Colorado Leaders
587 - Jaromir Jagr Season Highlights
626 - Tye McGinn
650 - Nail Yakupov - And this is the 4th appearance in this pack of Yakupov.
611 - Jonas Brodin
623 - Roman Cervenka
262 - David Desharnais (Gold)
329 - Rick Nash (Gold) - And here's a nice player to pull a parallel of.
228 - Jordan Nolan (Gold)
273 - Pekka Rinne (Gold) - And another one.
296 - Dainius Zubrus (Gold)
310 - Kyle Okposo (Gold)
390 - Michael Stone
399 - Sidney Crosby. Even if you're not a fan of the team, pulling a card of a marquee player for your base set is always nice. Especially when it is a great in-game photo.
413 - Matt Cooke
352 - Colin Greening
435 - Andrew DesJardins
334 - Martin Biron
514 - Alex Ovechkin - If not an in-game photo, a memorable post-game shot os also welcome, as Ovie shows off his 700th point puck. It's nice to see a couple photos like this in the base.
528 - Dmitry Orlov
452 - Jaden Schwartz
536 - Nik Antropov
510 - Jason Garrison
524 - Troy Brouwer
463 - Ben Bishop - And to wrap things up, a rather plain looking horizontal card of Ben Bishop. But look at the mask. He's still sporting his Senators mask. It also makes an appearance on the Lightning team leader card. I'll definitely be looking for a second one of these!

And just one pack left. I figured I'd be done with the hits after pulling this 8s card, but one more autograph awaited me in the final pack.
