Nice pull

For those of you who poo-poo retail boxes of hockey cards, or hobby versions for that matter, here's a bit of proof that not every box is full of doubles, cheap inserts and your 1,497th card of Jaromir Jagr.

Needless to say, I was a tad surprised to pull this three-color jersey swatch card of Washington's Alexander Ovechkin from an eight-pack retail box of Upper Deck's 2008-09 Artifacts Hockey.

Sure, the swatch may be from an older Caps jersey, but you'll hear no complaints from me. Having said that, though, I doubt I'll by any more boxes. After a pull like this, it can only go downhill from here.
