2011-12 Parkhurst Champions box break
The cards are full bleed of course, high gloss, with a gold foil embossed name and logo at the bottom.
The backs are like this...
99 of the 100 base card set also come in an autographed parallel. Chances are 1:14 packs. The exception is Eric Lindros. Eric no sign for you!
Cards 101-120 are made up of old Wire Photos. They are short printed. You get one every five packs. Or four per box.
Cards 131-150 are called Rendition Colour and feature artwork. These fall at 1:8 packs.
Cards 151-160 are a subset called Rendition Black and White. These beauties are 1:32 or just over 1 per box and a half.
The other part of the "set" are Champ's mini's. These mini cards make up a 57 card set. And the first 45 cards are one per pack.
What do they look like? Glad you asked. My only "duplicate" in teh box was getting a Marcell Dionne regular and Green back.
So there you have it... all in all a fun break. Not for everyone, but if you enjoy hockey history like me, then you'll enjoy reading all of these cards like I did.
I'll be, as expected, going after this set, so if any of you bust any and don't like them, send them my way.
