Did someone say 'shootout'?


Nice, that Niemi auto is a case hit, so a pretty good box of S2. If you got the patch too (1-2 case) that is a great box

Who did you get for the Canvases? If you got any retired players, those can be quite valuable too.


Oh also if you are looking for Miele, you can buy his Panini Elite rookie auto (hard signed) for ~$6. I'd pick it up that way, it will save you the disappointment of buying that product. Also his first hard-signed autos, the H&P and SPGU versions are sticker autos.


Last, there are a few redemption cards floating around for the Passing the Torch Shane Doan/Andy Miele dual autograph out there that can probably be had fairly cheap ($20-$30). But it is a redemption and who knows when it will be in/if they ship it to Sweden

My card guys at the expo this weekend. and buying me 2 boxes of product (So i get two redemptions from the show), but i do get to open two fresh boxes he is bringing back, (And selling me anything lehtonen that comes through as a hit). one of my redemptions is a 1/3 something, and a 1/1 something. So im kind of excited to see what exactly i got. I wanted it to be a surprise, but he told me what to expect.

He is interested in the 1/3 whatever it is.

ITG is always good about putting low numbered and oddball numbered (1 of 9, 1 of 3) stuff in their product. I get the feeling this weekend we are going to see something numbered to 5 of less


Maybe not from ITG, but from something.

At least two patches(Krüger and Carter and maybe one or two more) + the Niemi, yeah. On top of that I got a couple of Canvas, including Crosby, and two retired players(will check when I've finished this bloodbowl game).

But yeah, I'm pretty happy with the box.

Yeah that sounds like a pretty nutty box then. Post pics


Here is what I hit last night:



Reimer masked marvels prime /25, Fabric of the Game Carey Price /99 and Andrei Markov gold /25. Not too bad

While at Target today I noticed Topps had put out an US Olympics set. I thought I'd grab a pack just to see what it is all about. Plus a portion of the sales support the US Olympic team so why not. So yeah, 1 pack out of a retail box from Target...




Holy gently caress. Sue Bird (I actually know who this is too) jumbo American Flag patch. 1 in 4 retail box pull, so not as rare as I had thought when I opened it, but still

'

(actually gold colored foil, not black)

All MVP cards have foil autos stamped on them, so it isn't quite the same as a hand autographed card. None the less the RNH is by far the most desired and valuable of the MVP rookies and MVP rookies are 1 per box, so it is pretty awesome.

You made out really well in that box. Case hit of the autograph, one of the top Young Guns of Carl Hagelin, Crosby canvas is great, Young Guns Canvas are like 5 per case.

Nice box, lets hope your luck carries over to tomorrow

Fall expo is going to be a fun time and you will certainly find some cool singles and stuff to buy. Just keep in mind if you are going to be buying boxes, you will probably pay full blown retail there.

I pay above retail at my local shop, still going to be an improvement as sad as it is. I'd mainly be going for single hunting, and just to experience it though

The struggle is real.

As someone who's done the expo as both an attendant (many times) and dealer (twice) It certainly is an awesome experience.

Make sure you bring enough cash, you'll find TONS of bargains and good deals. You'll also see high dollar pieces (cards, memorabilia) that will make your jaw drop.

One guy here is all like 30 over retail, the guy I have whose never in matches pricing I find online on canadacardworld. Then our other "sports store" does nothing but magic and yugioh cards.

Didint go by the card shop. Hopefully this week I will.

Also, I need to debate how much to set aside to bring to the expo. I don't want to go broke, but I do want to buy some fun stuff.

You can find some higher price bargain cards too. Last time I was there, in spring of 2009, my brother spent $50 for a hard-signed Malkin auto for UD Ultimate Collection. I got a Schremp press-plate auto for $20. It's one of those places where you have to do a quick sweep to compare prices and only pick up the big stuff if you've been looking forever. You just have to be prepared that EVERY card you've ever been looking for is going to be there.

Go the first day, and last day.

On the first day, you can quickly sweep around for all the best deals, and all the things you're specifically looking for. On the last day, you can get things super cheap since lots of guys would rather sell something for cheap than have to drag it home.

It is a nice collection and really not /too/ over priced. I am just not sure Burmi is going to be worth the investment. But really, all those auto plates are worth 75-150 each, so like I said, not too far off.

Yeah, maybe i'm cheap, but investing 3500-4000$ on my favorite player seems insane :\

Also, assuming you saw it on the same site as me (CnC) are there any other good hockey forums? I still think they're quasi jerks for what happens to Eric's breaks, but on the forum itself they've seemed decent

I never understood why people did this. Realistically, what are the odds he's going to sell the entire collection? It would make much more sense to piece it out.

Of course maybe it's some guy whose wife/girlfriend wants him to sell it and he's just not trying very hard.

Upper Deck, in their infinite wisdom, has apparently placed all the hits directly on top of the box.

Also, one guy pulled a Finite Miele card from a box, in case anyone wants it.

It IS asinine. Last year's SPX had all the hits in certain spots on the box, so we made sure to shuffle all the packs from open boxes. This year, instead of making it challenging, everything was right on top.

Also, the reason why that checklist is patchy is that whomever on that site is hand-researching it from eBay and case crackers. Because UD isn't ready with a checklist.

ElwoodCuse posted:

They possibly are. Rumors are surfacing that the NHL will give UD's license to Topps, putting Topps back in the hockey card market.
