2013-14 Score Hockey - Jumbo Pack Break

I had time for the LCS today, only to find out they were shorted on their expected Score Jumbo boxes. So, I have to wait until next week in order to really get into a box. But, they did have a few loose packs. So, I grabbed one of those to tide me over. Depressingly, only two packs of cards, (jumbo and a rack), and I've already got dupes.

8 - Sheldon Souray
53 - Luke Adam
163 - Pavel Datsyuk. I really love the ice-level, looking up photos. It is even nicer here when one can see the banners in the rafters.
76 - Chad LaRose
90 - Dan Ellis
14 - Devante Smith-Pelly
28 - Shawn Thornton. Such beautiful framing on this one with the subject of the card alongside the youngster rocking the Thornton jersey. And the interesting hair.
98 - Nick Leddy
209 - Scottie Upshall. There do seem to be a lot of celebration shots in this set. I'm not complaining.
139 - Artem Anisimov
154 - Scott Glennie
173 - Mikael Samuelsson
152 - Lane MacDermid
219 - Jonathan Quick
118 - Cody McLeod. Every hockey set should have at least one card that features the game in all its toothless glory.
238 - Ryan Suter - Dupe #1
281 - Jonathan Blum - Dupe #2
252 - Jason Pominville - Dupe #3
277 - Patric Hornqvist - Dupe #4
286 - Paul Gaustad - Dupe #5
300 - David Clarkson - Dupe #6 (At least this one fits into my Kitchener Rangers alumni set)
239 - Nicklas Backstrom - Dupe #7
Net Cam - NC19 - Mike Richter. It's really nice to see some retired players show up in this subset. There's also a Patrick Roy. It also gives a nice view of MSG.
Score Signatures - SS-CS - Chris Summers. Chris Summers doesn't even have any base cards in this year's set. The presence of #5 on the sticker indicates this might have been signed a while back. I smell a sticker dump! But, I think I know someone that might be interested in this. Here's a hint on the back.
It's already pulled aside for Dennis @ Too Many Manninghams. Plus "Summers in based out of Phoenix as an NHL player". Is this his card or his linkin profile?
Gold Parallel - 622 Rickard Rakell. I think I only pulled on gold parallel of a Hot Rookie last year. The gold really looks good with the Ducks colours.
Gold Parallel - 575 Blues Leaders
560 - Red Wings Leaders
568 - Islanders Leaders
589 - Season Highlights - Sidney Crosby
Hot Rookies 639 - Emerson Etem
Hot Rookies 596 - Eddie Pasquale
Hot Rookies 591 - Alex Killorn
Hot Rookies 629 - Jarred Tinordi. It's a little hard to see on the scan, but some of the silver is missing on the right side of the Hot Rookies. Both this and the Killorn had this feature. I guess these will do until the set is built.
Gold Parallel - 214 Jack Skille
Gold Parallel - 158 Ray Whitney
Gold Parallel - 143 Semyon Varlamov
Gold Parallel - 181 Jordan Eberle. There's a good player to grab a parallel of.
Gold Parallel - 172 Dan Cleary. A second great Red Wings photo. Again, visible banners and an interesting pose. Although it is a different angle from the skates upward.
Gold Parallel - 143 Jared Boll
433 - Jason Demers
332 - Ryan McDonagh
377 - Nicklas Grossman
348 - Craig Anderson - Dupe #8
391 - Jason LaBarbera - Dupe #9
362 - Jim O'Brien - Dupe #10 (At least these 3 will move into my mask binder and/or Senators Frankenset)
387 - Mikkel Boedker - Dupe #11
453 - Ryan Reaves
529 - Eric Fehr. Yet another great celebration photograph. The dejected goaltender in the background is another excellent usage of the horizontal design.
537 - Evander Kane
467 - Nate Thompson
525 - Joel Ward
464 - Teddy Purcell
480 - Clarke MacArthur

Ugh. 11 dupes, even though 4 of them do fit into non-set building PCs. But that's the risk you take with packs. Still, the insert portion of this was really strong with the auto and the net cam insert. There's also some memorable photos on the Datsyuk, the Thornton and the Cleary.
