I've done a few posts on hockey cards and have actually been pretty excited about them due to the great cards Upper Deck puts out. That emboldened me to pick up a pack of the 2015-16 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Hockey Cards. I should have put a little more thought into it. I'm a fringe hockey guy but a big fan of the Upper Deck hockey cards.
That said, I am not a fan of chrome cards nor am I a fan of expensive cards. A little research, actually any, would have told me these weren't for me. There were only four cards in the pack which ran me $4.99. Ouch. That was my fault as I didn't pay any attention to the pack or the box I grabbed it from. Fail. And they are chrome and I just don't get chrome cards, or chromium which is another term I've seen them described as.
That is not to say these aren't good cards. I just don't appreciate them. So I'll leave it up to you to decide whether or not these are worth picking up. Hopefully the pictures do them justice. I might still pick up a pack of the regular O-Pee-Chee Hockey but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
