I did come across a new type of repack at the local Target while I was still posting 13-14 Score break stuff. It wasn't in the card aisle, but in the area as you walk in, mixed with other dollar-y merchandise. It featured a 100CT case, 2 packs, and 25 misc. cards. Not a dollar, but $5.00. A little steep for a repack without a lot of stuff, but I figured I should touch this stove at least once. The two packs visible were retail 2009 OPC and 2006 Parkhurst. Blandish, but more interesting than some of the visible Victory and MVP.
I'll start with the loose cards.
2011-12 UD #374 Scottie Upshall
2011-12 UD #391 Ty Conklin - A pair of great exit and entrance shots, back-to-back. Have I waxed poetic about my love for the Holmstrom shot before? If not, I should have.
1991 Arena Holograms #14 Glen Murray
2012-13 UD #96 Tomas Plekanec
2012-13 OPC #389 Steve Downie - Another card for my Rangers alumni collection, despite only 17 games worth of play in town.
5 Ultimate Draft cards
2011-12 Victory #279 Robyn Regher - Truly among the finest NHLers born in Brazil.
Off to the packs. Age before beauty.
The Parkhurst was another reason I picked up this pack. While the usual suspects appear in this set, there's some nice cards of players who you don't see a lot of anymore. Think the SPs in Archives.
Case in point. O'Reilly's the only one among this crew who have shown up with any regularity in recent sets.
5 bucks worth? In terms of book value, certainly with the Roy. In terms of personal value, its a little closer. I'd rather thumb through more cards, but the quality was definitely there with even the loose cards.
