2015 Adventures in Repacks: Part 24: Summer at the Flea Market

Means several things to me. Fresh blackberries. Tasty peanut butter/chocolate fudge. Pig tails! And an old favourite for me, $5 bricks of cards!

Quick recap for someone seeing these for the first time. A brick of cards (mostly recent base from mid-range sets) and a hit for $5.00. One card visible at the front and another one the back. Simple!

2013 Crown Royale Zdeno Chara - I opted for this particular brick for this visible card. A nice little addition to my secondary Bruins collection.
2013 CR Curtis Glencross
2013 CR Alex Steen
2013 CR Pavel Datsyuk
2013 CR Jordan Eberle
2014 Ultra Jonathan Bernier - So, what was the worst moment for him last year? The goal against the Coyotes or his lack of knowledge concerning Nelson Mandela.
2013 CR Thomas Vanek
2013 CR Jonathan Quick
2010 Between the Pipes Ryan Miller - Always love new mask binder cards.
2014 Platinum - Henrik Zetterberg - SHINY!
2013 Artifacts Corey Perry
2013 Artifacts Drew Stafford
2013 Rookie Anthology Ryan Miller
2013 SP Authentic Jeff Carter
2013 SP Aut. Tomas Fleischmann
2010 Victory Maxime Talbot - I wish UD had brought this line back instead of MVP. The designs aren't nearly as busy.
2010 Victory Vincent LeCavalier
2010 UD Patrice Bergeron
2010 UD Milan Lucic
1993 Leaf Darren Madeley - WOO-HOO! Completely random and unexpected 1993 Leaf card, and it is a Senator to boot!
2007 UD Generation Next Kari Lehtonen - Completely random insert!
2014 Ultra Mats Zuccarello - I wasn't a big fan of the base design this year, but do like the bottom fading a little more on horizontal cards than the vertical ones.
2014 Ultra Nino Niederreiter
2014 Ultra Pekka Rinne
2014 Ultra Zack Kassian
2013 Totally Certified Joffry Lupul
2013 SP Aut. Bobby Orr
2012 Artifacts Kevin Shattenkirk

2011 Titanium Game Worn Gear - Tyler Kennedy - And here's the hit. Nice to get one of the alternate Penguins uniforms on the swatch.
2013 Titanium Evgeni Malkin
2013 SP Aut. Braden Holtby
2010 Black Diamond Rich Peverley
2010 Victory Ethan Moreau
2012 SP Auth. Gilbert Perrault - Classic hockey facial hair.
2012 SP Auth. Jamie Benn
2012 SP Auth. Alex Pietrangelo

2012 SP Auth. Henrik Lundqvist
2013 SP Game Used Thomas Vanek
2013 SP G.U. Kris Letang
2013 SP G.U. Theo Fleury
2011 Titanium Jonathan Toews - Another really strong design. I love cards with logos in the background.
2014 SPX Duncan Keith
2014 SP Auth. Steven Stamkos - My first look at one of these. I like the usage of team colours with the design, even the photo of Stamkos makes him look like a mannequin.
2013 Tot. Cert. Mike Fisher
2013 Tot. Cert. Martin Hanzal
2014 Artifacts Andrew Lass
2014 Artifacts Mike Green
2014 Platinum Tyler Seguin - And the other visible card. Shiny!

And there you have it.


  1. Nice brick, love getting any non-white swatch really.

  2. They don't sell peanut butter fudge @ my local flea markets :(
