So, I have had better luck this past month than I've had in years:

The Connolly and Kane are out of /25. I got all of them from random box breaks on ebay.
The Burmi printing plate and Buff logo were from a case break. The Burmi is a 1/1, of course, and the Buff is a /6. That case break was awesome. There was a PK Subban auto/patch pulled, a Rick Nash printing plate, and a Taylor Hall auto/patch that was serialed to /25.
Not shown are a Gabronik Silhouette, a Parise/Neidermeyer auto card, because both were redemptions.
Also not shown are a Ryan Ellis Silhouette and a RNH Certified auto/jersey, because shipping from Canada to Kentucky takes forever now.
I think my run might be over now, as I have hit nothing in the past week.

Decided to push my luck into a huge Ultimate 8th/11th break.

Came out with some insane results

Six way 1/1 patch Mark Messier, Grant Fuhr, Jari Kurri, Al MacInnis, Lanny MacDonald, Mike Vernon

Alexander Yakushev auto /9

Yzerman/Trottier dual jersey /24

Adam Larsson /30 autograph

Gilbert Perreault Blades of Steel /24

Henri Richard base

Igor Larionov Base

So uh... my luck is causing me to go broke. I need to hide in a hole.

A few maildays to catch up on here and my first cardpost in the thread!

A couple autos


A couple jerseys


Some Parros (pre-stache so it's worthless)


A couple parallels


And finally my first decent hit!


I'm not really an islanders fan, does anyone know what it would fetch on ebay? I can't find even a picture of one anywhere else

My Broad Street Boys box arrived not too long ago, and here's some photos.



The box, obviously.



The pack is well protected as does arrive in a jewel case.



Here's the jewel case!





These two photos are the 8 base cards. The camera doesn't really do them justice, but they're pretty nice cards. I might try and put together a base collection via ebay.



Two jersey cards. They're as good quality as you'd expect from any other major manufacturer, but the thing that's especially great is that they're larger swatches than I've seen before. For instance, the Bryz swatch is a little bit larger than the size of a quarter.



Got four autographs, and who can go wrong with those top two. The picture is a little blurry, but they're decent cards.


Overall, I probably wouldn't recommend this set to anybody who is not a big Flyers fan. I didn't pull anything of any real rarity or special value, but as a diehard Flyers I'm very pleased with this set and I'm probably gonna purchase another box in the next week or two.

Also, I hope they do other teams in the future, because it's beyond amazing what they've put together.

Yes. They purchase letters or checks or other authentic documents with the person's signature, cut the signature off, and affix that to a trading card.

Was in my first group break in a long time tonight. 8 box case of Titanium, ended up getting the Kings with pick 16. It was going very badly until the last box, hit a Bernie Nichols six star memorabilia /25. I told Mike to try to sell it while he is at the national. If he doesn't sell it, I will post an image of it when I get it.

So I picked up a certified blaster the other day on a whim and got a pretty nice pull. 16/25



And then today got a box of titanium and got this little gem.

Anyone have a beckett subscription can tell me what to put it on ebay for? there was one exactly like it for 180 USD but I don't know if he'll get it. I figure $150 is reasonable

I see you have it up for 150 or best offer. Beckett guide is always way over real cash value. Your best bet is to search it on ebay, then filter it to completed listings and see what the most recent ones have been selling for. In the case of that card, you should expect to be able to get between $75 and $100.

It might sound a little low, but the market (and the Titanium set itself) is so inundated with RNH 'rookie' stuff the bottom is falling out a little on all but the top cards. For Titanium you can get RNH autos for Rookie Reserve, Titanium Reserve, Home,Away and Third jersey autos, Draft Day auto, New Wave auto, Quad Mem auto and rookie dual sigs. They just aren't all that hard to come by anymore so unless it is a really high demand subset it isn't going to command a huge price. I'd take the first 80ish offer that comes along if you are looking to move it.

I saw C&C had it up for $180 so I figured $30 less would sell a bit quicker if someone was shopping around for it. I was hoping it would at least pay for the box it came in!

Yeah, retailers always price things higher, overhead and all. The most accurate way to get a reading on how a card is selling is looking at the ones that have recently sold. Does that mean you won't get someone to offer $120 for it? No, but why would I offer $120 for yours if I can win one for $85?

Nice card! I received a Chara 4 star mem, has to be one of my favorite card designs.

Dumping 100 or so cards on ebay this weekend in anticipation of fall sports card expo.

Also a reminder for anyone interested on Sunday CloutsnChara is having a 28,000$ cup break, its full and paid, but it should be super entertaining to watch.

Holy poo poo that all looks awesome. It's too bad I can't really justify spending $100 on it. If only my car didn't need a new catalytic converter.

This thread is making me want to go out and buy some hockey cards though. Last time I did I think was at a Skydome vending machine for $0.35 CAD a pack.

Gonna be a while before I can partake in another break, our economy is gonna be tight this semester and not only am I going to be forced to sell off some non-Yote cards(because I'm not getting rid of these Yotes) but we're gonna have live-ins for a while.

The good news is that they're finns and I've already asked; they love hockey. ^^

I did get my BizNasty Social Signatures redemption and I love it. Paul's auto itself kinda blows but a hard-signed @Biznasty2point0 was well worth $13.

Any of you guys planning on going to the Toronto show November 9-11?

Welp, CNC had their case of each Cup tonight. 36 tins. $1000 per spot in that break. And the winner is... no one. Best hit was a Wayne Gretzky honorable numbers /99 patch auto. A $500 card. Other highlights include Jordan Eberle 1/1 plate auto, Eberle Signature patch, Eberle Limited Logos, Corey Perry Rookie patch auto, Vinny Lecavalier honorable numbers /4 Program of Excellence dual auto MAF/Lehnier.

And a bunch of other ~$300 cards. Howe, Lemieux, Crosby autos.

End of the day, a huge bust. Even the guy who gets 1st overall will be hard pressed to do much more than turn a profit. Welp, glad it was not my money.
