Update: 85 Young Guns

After stopping by our local card shop -- the House of Cards in Pinellas Park -- I learned those 85 Young Guns I pulled from a hobby box of 2008-09 Upper Deck Hockey Series 2 were likely part of a nuclear-hot case.

It seems that other hockey card collectors who bought boxes at The House of Cards also reported insane amounts of Young Guns as they ripped open packs. In one case, Young Guns filled entire packs.

Honestly, I can't imagine Upper Deck making a conscious decision to do that. To me, it sounds more like someone putting stacks of Young Guns, rather than base cards, into the collator.

Still, though, no complaints.

Hey there, I actually had a similar (sort of) incident with UD2, I got a pack at walmart with 6 young guns. I was pretty shocked to say the least. And I seem to get them more often then I should according to odds, no matter where I buy them. Hmmm....

Maybe UD printed more than they needed and decided to make card collectors the beneficiaries?
