2001-02 Vanguard Hockey

Well, well, A Pack A Day is still alive, look at that....

Today we bust a pack of 2001-02 Vanguard hockey from Pacific. At the time, it was a high end set, selling for, as you can see, $6.49 a pack. Today? .50 cents. We'll blame it on the economy.
 3 cards per pack...
Jeremy Roenick. These cards are super thick and very glossy. Kind of like a paint job on a '49 Merc.... 30 layers of candy apple red and clear coat...
 Marc Savard when he was a Flame, and not concussed...
 and an insert! V-Team member Teemu Selanne! Too bad he's not in a Jets jersey....
There you have it. I'd have hated to try and put this set together at $6.49 a pack. 100 card base set and 50 SP rookies. Ouch.

Thanks for posting on here Canuck! I thought I had killed any last bit of momentum the site had after my Between the Pipes rip a couple weeks ago...

I can't believe anything Pacific touched could have ever been considered high end.

Something weird about calling an insert the V-Team. Reminds me of broken promises.....
