Ouch. Lots of nice cards here, for sure, but wow did I get a bite taken out of my wallet and trade bucket today. Not sure I made out all that great considering. Anyway, on with the hits...

I'll start it off with the Certified box...

Tim Thomas Fabric of the Game #269/399
P.K. Subban Fabric of the Game #120/399
Ben Holmstrom RC Auto
Tim Thomas Certified Champions insert
Joe Colborne Certified Potential Materials Prime #14/25
Roberto Luongo Masked Marvels insert
Ryan Callahan Mirror Blue insert #81/99
Dany Heatley Mirror Red insert #069/199

The Colborne is nice, but overall it was a pretty weak box.

Box #2, how about some Titanium?

Can't say there's anything blowing it up for me at this point, so I opened five boxes of Ultimate, three from the LCS, two from the news shop, since the LCS was out.

Box 1...

[Image: 11-12UltimateCollectionBox1.jpg]

Steven Stamkos base #106/399
Andy Miele Autographed RC #069/299
Matt Duchene Ultimate Signatures
Mika Zibanejad & Colin Greening Ultimate Rookie Patches #10/35

Nice patches, but there is a little crease along the top edge of the card. Not visible on the surface at all.

Box 2...

Mike Richards base #084/399
Andrew Shaw RC #145/399
John Tavares Ultimate Signatures

Sick patch, wrong Oiler.

Box 3...

Robert Bortuzzo RC #214/399
Thomas Vanek (third time's the charm, right?) Ultimate Jerseys
And a slick looking card, Ted Lindsay 1997 Legends Autograph

and my final box of the day, and probably the last one I'll open for a while.

Miikka Kiprusoff base #006/399

All I can say is wow sick patches nice legends auto and looks like alot of FUN!!! congrats
Need that Hagelin RC. Check my ORG
As a red wings fan...I'm drooling with jealousy! If you ever feel like moving the lindsay you know where I am Sad
Not sure why Lindsay would be in the 1997 Legends set. I thought you had to have played that year to be in it. Are you sure it is the same set or another one? I may be totally wrong though. Nice breaks.
Some wicked cards there Chris! Love seeing breaks like this! Thanks for the great show and congrats on the awesome hits!

I would be interested in any / all of the Wings cards if you are looking to trade them.

Thanks,
Nathan
There are some great hits in there like the Turco and Lindsay, but overall, I have to agree...ouch. Given my own experience and the limited breaks I've seen, I can't see doing Ultimate unless it's a whole case. In other words, I can't see doing Ultimate.

I know you feel the same way: value doesn't come from expected resale necessarily. It's just as satisfying to get some good looking cards that either you want for your PC or that can get you cards you want for your PC. I've never seen anyone have more last pack luck than you so maybe it caught up with you all at once and now the bloodshed is over for the next season.

Thanks for showing off that huge break...believe it or not, it helps scratch the itch a bit from afar. I'm going to save up for a box of OPC. : )
sweet Lindsay

nice hits but for the price of some the boxes... i think you should get a little more but maybe that is just me
