I had spoken with much bravado about how of course I would tear, but when I won, I thought, "How can I tear a card?!" I always feel iffy about the products where you have to destroy something to get at an unknown. Pinnacle hit me with this rapid fire with the rip cards and Pinnacle Inside cans in the late 90s. But, since I said I would tear, and I hadn't paid a thing for the Potvin except for a few moments to post every day for a week, I figured I had nothing to lose.
As you can see, I dared to tear.
At this point I was just hoping I hadn't nicked the inside card. Nestled nicely in the middle was:
The #1 pick of the 2010 Draft. That's not bad at all. I suppose only time will tell how good he truly is. Ovechkin and Crosby represent a good 2 year run for overall #1s in 2004-2005, but I'd say Erik Johnson definitely broke the streak. Thanks for a great contest, and everyone go check out Sports Card Info if it's not already in your blog reading list.
