Very disappointing Christmas box break...2012 ITG History of Hockey - darren47 - 12-26-2012 10:24 PM

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!!!
It's been quite some time since I've been on here but wanted to post a break that I had on Christmas Day. I always get a couple boxes of hockey wax to break for Christmas, usually it's SPA or SPGU. This year was the first time I've ever had a higher end product to bust. I opened my gift to see a box of 2012-13 Artifacts and a box of 2012-13 The History of Hockey(4 cards per box). This box was almost $300. I was so pumped figuring this was the time I was going to get a major card, man wasn't I disappointed. My first card was a Rick Martin auto buy back card. My second was a Rick Nash Signature series rookie card minus the signature...Fail. Third card was a Paul Maclean auto card, probably can get this card from any flea market for less then 5 bucks. Last card was a great moments in hockey history, ten point game by Darryl Sittler. 08/40 Silver. 2 colour patch. I cannot find the price on any of these cards in my Beckett, other than the Rick Nash- worth a whopping 6 bucks. I was very thankful for my gift but wished I had a better turnout from this product...will definitely not buy this product nor recommend it. Hoping for a better turnout from my Artifacts. Will break and scan pics in next few days. Stay tuned!!

I had a nice Tundra Tandem Dual(Washington Capitals) a couple of SP's, rookies and a redemption for the blues. I am waiting on another box that I didnt get in time for Christmas. When I get that Im gonna scan and upload all the cards from my Christmas breaks.

Rough go on the break. I am thinking that I will stay away from opening anything for 2012-13 so far... ALL have been brutal other than Artifacts! Can't wait to see the scans of the other stuff!

Biggest ripoff product ever made. 3 nickel flea market cards and 99.9 per cent of the time some high school drawn art card with a lousy piece of jersey on it for 300 bucks.

Give your heads a shake.
