Bought these the other day from SCC, when searching for National Show deals. Got good prices on both UD S2 retail was $46 and ITG H&P was $30. Bought the UD for my chase to complete the set with YGs and the ITG features 2 autos and 2 gu per box, so thought it was worth a try as there are some decent autos in the product and some of the gu are cool looking.

2018-19 UD S2:

Base set: did not sort out since I have it and just got these, but I did count only two base packs, all the others had an insert, YG, so 7 x 22 is 154 plus 16 is 170 base.

OPC Update inserts: M Hoffman, RCs N Joseph, M Heiskanen, J Anderson-Dolan, and I Lundestrom. Silver base M Domi. Retro RC J Kyrou and K Sherwood. Several dupes, but got a few I needed.

RC Portraits: K Vesalainen, C Wolanin, J Kyrou, N Pionk. Needed most of those so not bad.

Canvas: C Crawford, N Patrick, and CL of Ovi/Blues player. Nice needed all of those.

Canvas Program of Excellence: Joey Hicketts. Dupe, really have to hit the same guy on a 1 in 48 packs?? laugh.gif

Young Guns:
Mathieu Joseph have it! sad.gif
Zach Aston-Reese smile.gif Pens!!! have it!
Isac Lundestrom have it! ugh!
Sami Niku have it! ugh again!
Andrei Svechnikov yeah, hit one I need for the set! smile.gif
Dylan Gambrell another have it! ouch!

Overall, was moderately fun to bust. The excitement of not know what you might hit is fun, until you start seeing the same names and then you start feeling like you wasted your money on another busted box. At least I got one decent one for the set and some inserts that I needed, so cannot complain there, just wish the POE and a couple more YGs would have been different players to add to and help finish my set.


On to the 2011-12 ITG Heroes and Prospects. I bought this one as ITG usually has nice swatches on the GU and there are some decent ones in the product. Along with that there are some decent players in the autos, so for $30 for 4 hits and chances at good players, figured I would have some fun. Here are the results of my box:

Base: 18 packs 9 cards, 8 or 7 base per pack and 1 decoy or gu per pack. 16 decoys 2 gu hits and 5 inserts total, which leaves 13 packs of 8 base and 5 of 7 base or 139 base of a 200 card set. I have not sorted these yet, as I only opened it last night.

Inserts:
2011 Memorial Cup Champs J Huberdeau
Class of 2012 Mikhael Grigorenko times 2 with #2 and #28 on back. These were redeemable for a special card if the player was picked at that position in the draft. He was drafted in position 12, so these were losers anyhow. Would not matter as the redemption ended years ago. laugh.gif

GU hits:
Game Used Jersey Black - Logan Shaw black only 1"x1" swatch. Whoisit hit? not even multicolored. sad.gif

Subway Super Series Game Used Jersey Black - Joe Morrow white big 2"x2" swatch. Back in 2012 I would have been real happy with this hit as he was a highly touted Pens pick, but he never panned out and was traded several times from teams.

Autograph hits:
Joey Crabb - this one had me feeling crabby when I hit it. laugh.gif Another whoisit hit? but that is what you kind of expect in prospect products.

Last but not least and the best hit of the box . . .
Nathan MacKinnon auto. biggrin.gif This made up for the rest of the hits in the box!! He was one of the top autos in the set, so cannot complain on that one.

Overall ITG had me feeling good and I opened it first. Had me thinking maybe a Carter Hart YG would be in the S2 box, but that did not happen, still got a Svechy which was needed and a POE which aren't in every box, so not a bad 2 box break. UD was a little funner with almost a "hit" per pack. Good luck on your breaks!

Thanks. I am pretty sure the ITG would be eligible to ship to Canada, but probably not the UD S2. Not sure how bad the shipping and duty fees would be though.

Those were two good boxes! Hitting duplicates stinks, but the duplicates you did hit are at least guys with an NHL future, not just an AHL call up. MacKinnon auto is awesome. One of the best in the game.

Would be interested in the Hicketts POE. Let me know what you need for the set if you would be willing to trade it. I have some extras.
