What Was Inside That Dare To Tear Box Topper?

A couple of weeks ago I held a contest for a sealed Felix Potvin 2010-2011 Zenith Dare To Tear box topper.  Matthew Wilson from the blog Tenets of Wilson was the lucky winner.  I received an e-mail from Matthew early today.  The urge to open it was too much to handle and Matthew decided to tear.  Inside waiting for him wasn’t a base card or a parallel.  Instead what was waiting for him was a Taylor Hall 2010-2011 Donruss Elite RC Auto #’ed/99.  The odds of pulling a card like this are out of this world.  I couldn’t be more happy for Matthew.  I’m glad one of Sports Card Info’s contests could yield such a high-dollar card.  This has to be the most valuable card awarded to a reader.  The last Taylor Hall ’10-’11 Elite RC Auto #’ed/99 sold for $125.00.

Pinnacle Zenith Dare to Tear

Last night I was reading a book by Dr. James Beckett called “Collecting Baseball and other Sports Cards”, and while reading the history of hockey cards I came across a list of top cards.  One that stood out to me came from a pack of 1997-1998 Pinnacle Zenith Dare to Tear, which was the first product to feature “cards within cards”.  I remember this product so well because back when it came out I subscribed to Tuff Stuff and sometimes they would include promo cards in the magazine.  One month I got a promo card of Joe Sakic from this set and within the card was an Eric Lindros normal sized card.  I wonder if this is where Topps got their idea for the “rip card”?  I miss Pinnacle and Zenith.  They had some of the coolest insert cards ever made for the hobby.
