Steel City had these at $20 a box, so I picked up a couple of boxes just to see how I would do. Each box was to contain at least 3 autos. Here are the results by box:

Box #1:

Base set 109 of 150 cards. 99 of the base 100 set and 10 SPs (#101-150)

Team Standout inserts (cardboardy inserts more like OPC base than the base set):
Cole Schneider
Daniel Carr
Jakob Forsbaca-Karlsson
Garret Sparks

Silver Foil (base cards in a reflective foil coating):
Julian Gauthier
Tommy Cross
Josh Ho-Sang SP

Autos (3):
Mike McKenna
Chris Nell
Kevin Porter

And the final hit of the box a

Box 2:

Base set 110 of 150, complete base set 1-100 and 10 SPs

Team Standout inserts (4):
Matt Puempel
Cal Peterson
Jason Dickinson
Dylan Strome

Silver Foil (3):
Samuel Montenbeault
Nikita Soshinkov
Nikita Scherbak SP

Autos (3):
Niklas Svedberg
Christopher Gibson
Alex Lyon

That was it. Not bad for $20 each, a fun little inexpensive bust, but nothing really stands out as far as hits. Not sure on the autos as none were the SP players and the only one I have heard of is Kevin Porter. 5 of the 6 autos were goalies, so maybe one of them will break out in a few years??? laugh.gif The odds state base autos are 1:10 packs vs SP players are 1:20 packs, but I got no SP player autos in either box. I hate when manufacturers put odds that don't actually come true when you open the box. Overall, it still was fun, but it would have been nice to hit the SP autos, which is what I was hoping for when I bought the boxes. Good luck with your boxes!
