Hey all - hope everyone is staying safe and entertained during these times.

Lucky for me, my LCS is offering drive up pickup so I was able to grab 2 boxes of the new OPC Platinum yesterday. Ended up with 1 very bad box, and 1 very good box. Here's the goods:


Box 1:

Rookies:

Noah Dobson
Trent Frederic
Adam Fox
Joel Farabee
Filip Zadina
Aleksi Saarela
Nikolai Prokhorkin
Jack Hughes
Quinn Hughes
Oliver Wahlstrom
Nick Suzuki
Mario Ferraro
Carl Grundstrom
Alexandre Texier


Retros:

Mark Scheifele
Erik Karlsson (Rainbow)
Barrett Hayton RC
Brady Keeper RC
Cody Glass RC
Jimmy Schuldt RC
Rasmus Sandin RC

Rainbows:

John Carlson
Ryan Getzlaf
Evgeni Malkin
Sergei Bobrovsky
Nikolai Prokhorkin RC

Inserts:

Thrilling Finishes - Leon Draisaitl
Calder Front Runners - Adam Fox
Best in the World - Artemi Panarin



The "better" stuff:

All Star Rainbow Variation (these seem 1 per case) - Jeff Skinner
Sunset - Evgeny Kuznetsov, Ryan Suter
Matte Pink RC - Nico Sturm
Violet Pixels /399 - John Gibson
Red Prism /199 - Jamie Benn
Seismic Gold /50 - Evgeny Kuznetsov
Auto - 17/18 Update Rookie Auto - Lucas Wallmark


Not the best there. I'm a believer that if you're going to throw a base rookie auto from 2 years ago into a box, it should be a bonus hit. It was cool however learning that the Skinner was a rarer hit.



Now onto the better box:


Rookies:

Aleksi Saarela
Oliver Wahlstrom
Nick Suzuki
Joel Farabee
Filip Zadina
Carter Verhaeghe
Adam Fox
Morgan Frost
Nikita Gusev
Teddy Blueger
Max Jones
Julien Gauthier
Ville Heinola
Cody Glass


Retros:

Phil Kessel
Ryan O'Reilly
Brayden Point
Claude Giroux (Rainbow)
Ryan Poehling RC
Trent Frederic RC
Vitaly Abramov RC

Rainbows:

Tyler Bertuzzi
Brock Nelson
Alex DeBrincat
Mika Zibanejad
Oliver Wahlstrom RC


Inserts:

Thrilling Finishes - Alex Ovechkin
Calder Front Runners - Kaapo Kakko
Best in the World - Patrick Kane


"Better" Stuff:

Sunset - Marc-Andre Fleury
Sunset RC - Kaapo Kakko
Matte Pink RC - Erik Brannstrom
Violet Pixels /399 - Nikita Kucherov
Retro Blue /149 - Philipp Grubauer (These look incredible in person this year, might consider doing the set once it hits ePack)


And the auto:


Seismic Gold Rookie Auto /25 - Kirby Dach

Platinum is one of my favorite products so I always open a box or two, and I'm glad to hit a sweet auto, it definitely balances out the Lucas Wallmark disappointment.

Everything is available except the Skinner & Grubauer. Feel free to shoot me an offer on the Dach or I'd be looking to trade it for nice Makar or very nice Olofsson. If trading/selling any of the lower end stuff I prefer to keep it to where I could ship to a US address.


Thanks for looking, comments appreciated as always!


Currently looking for:

Cal Clutterbuck, Lee Stempniak, and Paul Stastny
Also Current Sabres Rookes

Nice hit on the Dach. I like the product design, I hate the price for the return. Although I generally hate over paralleled products, this one usually looks nice. Just for the price of a box and only the one auto per box, I will stick to trying my luck on Young Guns. I bought packs of this stuff on epack last year and my best hit was an emerald rookie, never hit an auto. Congrats on the breakage.
