2015 Adventures in Repacks: Part 33.2 - Cube or Cards?

Might as well wrap this one up.
1990 Bowman - Tom Barrasso -  I have no idea why, of all the cards to make visible among the random mix, it is usually 1990 Bowman.
2011 Score - Zac Rinaldo - The rookie card is of someone still active. That's a plus!
2008 Power Play - Henrik Zetterberg, Henrik Lundqvist, Chris Drury, Stephen Valiquette, Nigel Dawes, Lauri Korpikorski - While I'm not a fan of oval-vision, I do like the colourful design, as well Stephen's Spiderman themed mask.
2011 Score Rookie/Traded - Al Montoya, Tomas Kaberle, Marco Sturm, Jordan Caron, Dustin Penner, Brandon Pirri - There's my second throwback Kings jersey in this.
2012 Upper Deck - Keith Yandle, Henrik Lundqvist, Kris Letang, Victor Hedman, Andrew Ladd, Dustin Brown - More nice photography, as expected from Upper Deck. The big winner here is that hat trick card of Dustin Brown, although they're all contenders.
2012 Artifacts - Milan Lucic, Henrik Zetterberg, Kevin Shattenkirk, Ryan Kesler, Jonathan Toews, Dale Hawerchuk, Paul Stastny, Tyler Myers, Bobby Orr - This is pretty boring, although you can't hate getting an Orr.
2009 Coll. Choice - Michael Frolik, Jason Arnott, Milan Hejduk, Vaclav Prospal, Scott Gomrz, Dan Boyle, Brad Boyes, Marty Turco - WOO-HOO! This repack cube has netted me two new Milan Hejduks for my 2/14 collection. This is another one I'm surprised I didn't have in the binder already. This solidly puts the cards as more interesting than the cube.
2009 Black Diamond - Matt Stajan
2007 Black Diamond - Marc Savard   - I like the fact there is some colour in the base design in this year.
2007 Parkhurst - Dino Ciccarelli - A classic uniform.
2011 Victory - Jeff Carter, Alexander Semin
2011 Pinnace - Nicklas Backstrom, Ryan Malone, Henrik Sedin - Pinnacle, as a whole for their base sets, may have had better photo choices than Upper Deck, at least in terms of uniqueness.
2009 Upper Deck - Dustin Penner, Niklas Hagman, Kimmo Timonen
2011 Score All Goalies - Joey MacDonald, Jordan Pearce, Thomas McCollum, Nikolai Khabibulin, Devan Dubnyk, Martin Gerber - I had no idea who Pearce was. It turns out he was one of those guys whose only NHL experience was on the bench, but that was still enough to earn him a card.
1990 Bowman - Steve Yzerman - And another Bowman to end it.
