I'm lucky enough to have all 3 UD 1/1's that were made of Morozov. You'd laugh your balls off at what I paid for them, but I've got them!

I am missing a handful of his cards to have one of everything, but I've pretty much given up on finding them at this point.

Here's a lovely cellphone pic, don't have a scanner.

Holy gently caress Elite sucks rear end. Even without the missing case hit, it was terrible. Also, Ashe, you got a better card from your 1 pack than I got in 12 boxes worth hahahaha


Do not expect this product in any of my breaks. Contenders better be loving good. Elite is Zenith levels of terrible.



e: Even the Biznasty social signatures is a redemption. So bad.

^^ I didn't break, this was just someone else's we jumped in on. I got the Yotes and Caps. Got 2 die cut yotes parallels, 1 caps die cut parallel and a couple OV elite series inserts. Not bad for $115

Terrible coalation, i think 1 case was 3 or 4 Denis Savard autos. 1 patch for the case, 1 dual auto (Howard/Maccullum redemption) Gobs of random parallel die cuts and inserts. Oh, and a patch-sized spacer card with a patch window cut in it. Going to be talking to panini about that.

It was just a bad set. They treat the single-jersey prime numbers piece as a every other box level hit. The set really is worse than Certified and CR, at $30-40 more a box.

Remember Pinnacle last year? $100/box Pinnacle.... This is almost as bad at the cost.

Zenith is really the only set I can think of that is decidedly worse than this, and at least that had interesting inserts and jumbo cards.

Pinnacle last year actually was popular, once the price went down. Patches and stuff move things along (and having Datsyuk on the packs helped some).

Elite looked like it could be a dud, and those suspicions were right.

Also, congratulations to Panini and Upper Deck for delaying all their hockey products back so far that Detroit, Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and all the Canadian teams were already done for the year. Way to drive those sales, you guys.

It's good to check with whatever company you want to buy first to see what qualifies for a redemption and that they still have some. Then you just head to any dealer and buy the box from them and take it over to the company's booth to open it up, and they give you your card. They're generally nice people who flip out when you pull cool stuff.

Yeah, they give you free promotional packs based on what you buy. So if you like, open a box of Pinnacle, they might give you 2 bonus packs, but if you open a box of Crown Royale they might give you 4. That kind of thing. Good luck, hope you get some sweet Oilers swag

I'm looking for $15 on the OEK and $20 on the Burmistrov, plus $2 for shipping.

Right now, I'm mainly just looking to sell, as I'm saving up for sets to come out, with the only rookies I'm chasing in later releases (Carl Hagelin, Gustav Nyquist).

Let me know, so I can put them up elsewhere. I'll also find more stuff to sell/trade later on.

Yes, TTM, or Through The Mail is one way, another is In Person, although if it's across the country or world that's a little unlikely.

I've gotten Peter Stastny, Nail Yakupov, Curtis Joseph, Johnny Bower (One of the Best TTMers out there) and Tim Thomas from a previous set.


I used to get them printed out of state in a Texas based printing company that uses actual printing plates instead of ink and toner printing. It's a bit pricier, but the results are so worth it if you ask me.


I also made this with some home die cutting. It's currently at a contact's place in Dallas waiting to be signed.

Yeah, I hate printing them out and seeing a typo. Bugs me to no end.


When I collect cards, the design of them really factors into it. This way, I can control the designs. I can get the same things I like, autograph, stick, jersey, patch, etc, into a design I like.

Plus I have a lot of free time since the Avs aren't in the playoffs.

There's a whole Mini community out there of people who just design and make customs. A large majority will remain on the computer forever but everyy now and then some will make it out to be printed and assembled. Also it gives ideas for cards that haven't been made yet, either from the absurd (Game Used Ice trapped in a card) or the possible but not yet done (Say, a set for a team showcasing off each of the jerseys in it's history, home, away, alt, RBK home away alt,etc).
