Default 1 pack Certified

My LCS got in some boxes of Topps Chrome FB that I went down to grab some of, and while I was there he told me he had one really thick pack of this years Certified Hockey that he thought I should buy and open. So I gave it a whirl.

Turns out it was super thick because it had 2!!!!! Freshman Fabric rookie auto jerseys in it. It was Sven Baertschi /499, and a redemption for J.T. Brown.

I don't know many hockey players, so please let me know how I did.

J.T. Brown is an undrafted player who signed with the Lightning, but he has some decent credentials. Sven Baertschi was the 13th overall pick of the 2011 draft by the Flames, but he is Swiss and we all know that Switzerland is one of the hockey world's true powerhouses. The thing is that you just never know what kind of impact either of those players will have in 10 years. With that said, I personally would had been happy to had received two hits in a pack, even if one was a dreaded redemption. That was pretty nice of your LCS guy to sell the pack to a customer instead of opening it himself.

Not sure about the Brown, but Baertschi is a solid prospect.

Baertschi is a pretty nice hit. He's getting a lot of attention in Calgary, mainly because they have no other prospects to pay attention to .

Still, a good pull. Congrats!
