After much anticipation, the 2010-11 Victory Jamie McBain Rookie card is mine!
Global domination is now within my grasp.
Checklists for future releases haven't been posted on Upperdeck's website as of yet, but with Artifacts set to release on 10/12, I don't see anything beyond McBain and Samson rookies until Upper Deck Series One is released on 11/9.
I don't know about anyone else, but I'm very disappointed with Upper Deck this summer. There isn't one single auto/patch rookie card with a Canes sweater on it. I know we didn't have any big prospects make their debut until late but they could have swung for a auto/patch card of Bowman I think. They didn't shaft him like they shafted Justin Peters in 08-09 (when they only gave him a single card release), but they didn't give us Canes fans a lot of love either.
[Per Upperdeck on Facebook, The Cup release date has been pushed (for the third time) to 10/1.]
Hopefully this upcoming year will be full of healthy-looking auto/patch cards with McBain set to appear as a 2010-11 rookie and Dalpe, Staal, Skinner and Riley all looking at a possible NHL premieres... and subsequent holes in my checking account.
