I hit the LCS this morning...one that I've found Opening Day at before. Alas, that wasn't happening as that product was nowhere to be found on their shelves. Since I couldn't leave empty handed, I had to get a pack of something. I have some '15 Donruss on the way, so the only other option there for new stuff was this:
So, I'll start with my base cards.
That's it for the base, but since 2/14 baby Milan Hejduk has both a base and a Flair insert in this set, I'll still have a couple cards I'll wait until the Expo to chase down.
And the 8th card in a supposed 5 card pack?
Pretty good card for just one pack. A definite keeper for me!
As to my hypothesis why there were additional base cards. This hit doesn't seem as thick as the more common auto/patches that are in these packs. It also isn't as thick as their dummy cards. So, in order to disguise the fact this pack contains one of these low-numbered parallels, they add some extra base.
