BILL FILLMAFF'S GREATEST DISAPPOINTMENT


Old style Topps auto win for me

I liked that design.

Got my Biznasty twitter sigs for $12 shipped. I hope the redemption goes faster than that Derek Stepan freshman fabric (although Panini is still better than Upper Deck at that).

I really like Contenders. The first case that was opened had TWO booklets and eight patches. Love the hard-signed autographs, and the only problem is a lack of cool inserts.

Which is odd because last year Contenders was all about cool inserts with leather larceny, great outdoors, against the glass and draft tandems


Oh and Rutkowski, that Fasth goaltender you have a for will have rookie cards next year as he signed his first NHL contract and will no doubt be suiting up for a few games.


But..... he is a Duck

Contenders went from a hockey version of Contenders Football to a Panini version of SP Authentic. It's too bad the Winter Classic inserts didn't come back, that was a great set.

Thing is, I hate the team he used to play for and I hate that he almost single-handedly knocked my team out of the playoffs last year.

I do appreciate his skill though.

Question for smart people: I bought 1 pack of Gypsy Queen baseball on a whim and got a redemption for a Matt Kemp auto (ebay BIN for the redemption cards is ~$60). I have no interest in keeping the card but want to know if I should redeem it then sell it. Which sells for more, the redemption cards or the real cards? I imagine its the same for hockey as it is for baseball. Thanks

I'm not sure I follow. The redemption cards are selling now for $60 but I know people dont like redemption cards so I'm wondering if its wiser to redeem the card and then sell the actual extant autographed card later

Just noticed BizNasty/Doan/Kane/Klingberg booklets are going for 60-70$ on ebay O_O. Really glad I opened one now since i'd never want to pay that much.

I'm interested to see how much the Scheifele/Postma/Savard/Atkinson is going to run me

People don't like pulling redemption cards, but right now, you have a card that is a $60 item. By the time that the card is live, it might go down in value, Kemp might get injured, there might be a lot of Kemp cards, et cetera. If you don't want the card and it's not something that will be super shortprinted, it's better to sell now.

^^^ What he said. Also Kemp might never sign. Some athletes are lazy or card companies use new sticker autos for new product instead of fulfilling the old product. Cash it out now and save the headache. Keep in mind that just because someone has a $60 BIN listed doesn't mean someone is willing to actually pay that. I'd tone down the expectations a little too.

Welp, bought my first box from my local guy in a few months last night, an SPX and also got a pack of Crown Royale. Hope my luck carries over into this weekend's breaks:

David Rundblad ice rookie
Cam Neely dual jersey
Teemu Hartikainen jersey
MAf/Staal dual jersey
Erik Gudbranson jersey auto
and Ryan Getzlaf shadowbox from SPX

Blake Geoffreon rookie silhouettes prime auto /99 from Crown.


It was a good night pics later.

Oh come on, you don't even like him

Anyway, not a card but here's my latest acquisition. The Wilkes-Barre Penguins kept a puck for the player of the game for each win this past season. Here's the goal puck from Simon Despres' OT winner against Hershey on November 11.

Holy gently caress, how many teams did you have

I busted hard on rookie anth. First one I had the Yotes, was TOLD I had gotten a Rundblad rookie treasures and was happy, the video just got posted, not there :\ So I ended up with a handful of Pinnacle rookies and a Miele freshman sigs. Round 2 I got pick 5 so I waffled between Colorado and Detroit. Took Detroit for the 3x silhouettes (Smith, Nyqvist and Lidstrom). First box, first bonus pack Landeskog Ice Kings auto . And also for some reason the Wings of all teams missed. I ended up with 3 Pinnacle rookies (one of each) and a Smith/someone else dual mem. So yeah, I had a bad one haha.


Also that Faulk auto is really nice

Collation is a little iffy(Panini product with bad collation? NOWAI). Outside of that I have not seen any real issues in a half dozen cases opened. What are you seeing/hearing?

Just bought one box of Broad Street Boys online. I'll be sure to update what I get out of it.

Granted, I basically just paid nearly 100 bucks for what amounts to a single pack or two of cards (8 base, 6 inserts), but seeing some of the insert pulls that people have gotten just made it too tempting. Exciting

Two reasons:

- A friend busted a case, didn't get what was stated, and his shop owner called Panini. The QC guy at Panini stated that they'd been expecting this call, as someone in production told them "expect a lot of problems with this product".

- The stated odds, and what I've seen, are as follows:

One Luxury Suite RC #'d 99 This has been in every case
One Level 1 or Level 2 Rookie Treasure Rookie card per caseI've seen none
One of the following per case (Rookie Silhouette #'d 99, Prime Rookie Silhouette #'d 25 or Rookie Treasure Patch #'d 15)I've seen 3 of 4 cases with a Silhouette and a Treasures patch, with the Treasures of someone crappy
Two to Three Limited Phenoms Autographed Rookie cards per caseThis has been 3-4 per case
One Autographed Ice Breaker Parallel per case3 seen in 4 cases

None of the cases had the guarantees, and multiple cases had completely bizarre assortments. There's also Freshman Fabric cards (from Certified), and those have been one per case.

I been in about 15 breaks of Anthology and the I can say in 11 out of those 15 breaks, the 1 card bonus pack was a NY Ranger Luxury Suite Stick/Jersey card. 3 of which were Derek Stepan. Of the remaining 4, 2 were Crown Royale Tomas Kubalik from the Blue Jackets Auto cards, and a Flyer and a Duck Luxury Suite Stick/Jersey cards.
It also seems like Ottawa gets a ton of hits (esp. Rookie Treasures)in the ones I've been in.
