Every Thursday on Upper Deck's blog, they have a create a caption contest for a pictured card. I was the lucky winner this week and won 5 packs of 14/15 Artifacts. Now I'm wondering if these would be "hot" packs with extra good hits or detrius from open boxes. Should I sell them? When I receive them, I'll be like Lebron and announce The Decision here.
