Pack Break: 2009-10 SP Authentic

I haven't busted any packs in a while so I decided to stop by the LCS yesterday and settled for a single pack of 2009-10 SP Authentic. I usually stay away from the high end packs, but I am definitely glad I got this one. Check out what came out of it.

Best pull of my life, by far. So much so that the rest of the cards from the pack are irrelevant.

I have to say, I really love the design of this card. It's got a great color combination and the blue ink on top of the team logos is just awesome. I think the only thing I could go without is the underscore between the player's first and last names.

As far as the autos, I think Yzerman has the nicest of the bunch, followed by Gretzky then Lemieux. Too bad the Yzerman is a bit cut off on the right side of the card though.

Edit: April Fools...


  1. Wow, that's nice. I couldn't think of a better combination for the ultimate superstar triple. And I like how the text of each name is in their team colors instead of all the same. It's subtle, but gives it a little flair without upstaging the signatures.

  2. Like I said on facebook, that pull pretty much sums up the heroes of my childhood. Amazing job, I hope to have a hit like that someday!

  3. I just discovered your blog and think it's really well done...I have some cards you need for your want list but could not find your contact/email it anywhere on the site?

  4. Wow. That's an amazing collection all in one card.

  5. Yeah.....not bad. Too much ink if you ask me. So cramped for space.


    What a fantastic pull. Congratulations!

  6. I figure that was a joke that would be the pull of a lifetime!

  7. NASTY!!!!! And I fell for it.

    Well done. Well done.

  8. You had me on that one. Best pull of your life...? Best pull of most of our lives.

    PS. Word verification was "lizes". Like the one you just told.
