Great, good luck. The die-cut prime numbers set is pretty crazy. The entire set is in 3 parts, the first, second and third digits of a 3 digit stat number (like total goals, total wins, whatever) The first number is a jersey, the second is an auto and the third is a patch auto. The series is numbered to the number (so if it is 383 goals, the whole set is /383)

But here is the rub: the first, jersey card is printed to the first digit (in this example, 300), the second, auto card is printed to the second (in this example, 80) and the third, patch auto is printed to the last (in this example, 3 :stare: ) Getting a complete prime number would be awesome :cool:


Also, Rutkowski will be glad to know that Elite has Miele and Rundblad rookies and at least Miele rookie autos (probably Rundblad too, but not sure) If you want a Miele auto, there is one on ebay for like $5

I've really slacked off on collecting this season. Being in school hasn't done me any favors, and there aren't many card shops close to me. I really need to get to a show and dig through some boxes.

Speaking of which, the Toronto Sportcard & Memorabilia Expo is this weekend. If you can ever get to one of these, it is well worth it. Hundreds of vendors with a ton of both high end and bargain bin cards. It's really satisfying to paw through a box of "AUTOS $5 EACH OR 3/$10" and adding some unheralded gems to your collection. It's also a great place to see some of those high end cards in person and haggle with people. You meet some fascinating people there.

There are also some great perks to it. I haven't been to the show since Panini entered the market, but Upper Deck and In The Game usually do redemptions at the show for breaking boxes of certain products. Upper Deck usually does autographs (I received Peter Stastny and Frank Mahovolich autographed cards from the 02-03 Foundations set for opening some product that year at the show. ITG tends to give away additional memorabilia cards from whatever product you're opening. Three years ago my brother and I opened a box of Heroes and Prospects and received a Sam Gagner super series jersey card, but we also opened Between the Pipes and got a Plante/Price/Halak jersey. Really neat seeing the wool of Plante compared to those god-awful Edge jerseys.

Definitely worth the trip. I believe Beckett also offers grading drop-offs so you don't have to deal with some shipping and handling charges.

Hopping to make it down to the Autumn show.

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.



Also, reminder: 7:30 PM tonight! http://www.blogtv.com/people/darkwolf220

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

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

Please share how Contenders turns out. I was thinking of getting into that product after we wrap up the case break of Pinnacle.

Was in a case break of contenders on release day. It's a very nice set, with lots of hard signed autos. Patches are roughly 1 in every 2.5 boxes. Every box seems to have atleast one good auto. Overall like most products some good boxes some weak boxes. but overall I'm personally a fan of the set. Much better than the garbage known as Elite.
