A Historic Line

 

I generally don't do the game-dated moments thing with UD's e-packs, but finally decided to pull the trigger and get this card featuring something that never happened for the first time about 9 months ago - the first time a team started an all-black starting forward line. I actually ended up getting one of the gold parallels to go with the base one, which are limited to /100 (unserialed) copies as opposed to the regular /499 versions of this.

It was also Daniel Walcott's only NHL game so far, and he still hasn't received any other NHL cards. But what a cardboard NHL debut!

Here's the reverse of the card, giving a little more detail on the event.

There you have it!

  3. Fantastic card! Haven't really followed hockey lately (outside of checking Sharks scores), but this is a really cool piece of history.
