Default 10/11 The Cup tins x 3 + Group break

I busted 3 tins while waiting for the big Draft Break at my local shop tonight. I should have stopped after the first one, but I'm definitely happy about the GB.

I can't remember the order, but here's what I pulled from 3 tins:










Pretty brutal, but in the first tin I pulled a redemption for a Gretzky/Messier Enshrinements Dual Auto /35.

Now the group break, it was an 8 person, draft style break. It's the first time I've ever been in one and all day I was telling myself that I was going to pull spot #8 and end up with some unspectacular cards. Turns out, I was very, very wrong. In fact, everybody was able to snag a great card in the first round. The person with the 8th pick scored a Quad Patch of Spezza/Afredsson/Anderson/Gonchar with multiple breaks/colors numbered to 5!!


This case was loaded. It had a Hall/Eberle dual auto, 2 x Crosby Dual Autos /35, yes 2 copies of Crosby/Crosby, a Patrick Roy Stick Auto, Quad Jersey with Gretzky/Lemieux. I ended up drawing pick number 2 and didn't choose any of the above. Instead, I took a gamble and chose:




Dustin Tokarski BLACK 1/1 Rookie







What happened to my Gretzky/Messier? Turns out someone from the break wanted it, so I traded it for his 1st pick in the 1st round which was this:

Sidney Crosby/Sidney Crosby Dual Enshrinements Auto /35
