This was my first ever full box of a higher-end product. I really love the look and feel of the Artifacts cards, and felt it was high time to grab myself a box of them.

My luck with Artifacts previously was on an upswing. The first two boxes of cards I opened on this site were blaster boxes of Artifacts from years past, resulting in a Ron Hextall jersey patch and an Ovechkin “stars” card. Neither of these had a recap written for them, so I figured I’d just mention them here. I decided to purchase a single hobby pack back when Series 1 came out for this year, resulting in a very nice looking jersey card. As I saw my luck get better for this set, I figured it was about time to get a box.

The decision did not disappoint me. I ended up getting a very cool Lidstrom card, which I consider one of the better cards in my small collection. In all, I consider this box a success. Here’s what was inside:
