2009 Upper Deck Series One Hockey Packs a Real Punch! | Card Corner Club

Every box boasts that collectors will get six “Young Guns” and then there’s a chance of getting some autographs and memorabilia cards so for around $63 it should be easy to get your money’s worth, right?

Well after my first two rookie pulls I felt that way. My first was of Flyers rookie forward James van Riemsdyk. I have been following this New Jersey native for quite some time and now he’s having that great rookie campaign that I expected him to. As a matter of fact his numbers are comparable to Chicago’s Patrick Kane, who was drafted one spot ahead of him back in 2007. JVR has 17 points in his first 15 games with four game winners. So far that’s better than any rookie out there. John Tavares has two more points but no game-winners. This could be some Calder race as the season rolls on.

Read the rest and see the Hall of Fame coaching legend auto we pulled . . .
