Hey kids! It's that time of year again! That's right, football is in full swing and the smell of another NHL lockout is in the air. Let's have a big round of applause for Gary Bettman and Jeremy Jacobs who year after year, try to do their best to ruin my damn game. Idiots.
Jonathan Toews makes an appearance.
The wrapper..... as usual, a lot like the box.
When I am elected Grand High Poo-Bah, I will decree that the Kings must wear these uni's full time.
As mentioned, after the 500 base cards are 100 SP's. These are divided up into 50 Legends and 50 rookies. Or are they?
The Legend cards are brightly coloured, but the picture has been altered to a sepia like tone. Again, why I have no idea.
Look at all of those craptastic graphics on the bottom.
Last I checked, Super Mario's RC was in '85/86 OPC, not '12/13. There are five cards like this, as well as a checklist. So that makes 44 rookies in the set. Cool gimmick?
My scanner seems to love Rainbow Foils.
A few years ago, OPC came out with a Retro parallel. In 08/09, I LOVED them. In 09/10 I did not. In 10/11 I LOVED them. In 11/12 I did not. So that must mean that in 12/13 I must LOVE them again, right?
Oh, by the way, did I mention that this year OPC is including stickers in their hockey set? STICKERS!!!!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
OPC is also including Team Logo Patches. These are found every 3 boxes, or 1:96 packs. Yeah, you know where this is going.
Could it be?
Not one, but......
Supposedly four patches per case, and I find two in my one box. Hmmm.... fine by me.
So there you have it. My want/trade list will be up shortly. Anyone out there going to collect this set?
