Got a retail box at a reasonable price. The box contains 24, 8 card packs. Just a note, I think they cut back on the blasters (heard 1 yg per on average) and the tins are now 9 packs rather than 12 (2 yg per at 1 in 4 packs).

Here are the results of my box:

Base set building:
1-100 - 82 cards, missing 18
101-200 - 92 cards, missing 8

Total 174 cards, no dupes, missing 26 for the base set. Not bad for a box.

Inserts:

Portraits (4): Tavares, Huberdeau, Pacioriety, and Vitaly Abramov RC.

Canvas (4): B Tkachuk, Koivu, Granlund, and Gaudreau.

Shooting Stars (1): MacKinnon.

Young Guns (6):
Ilya Mikheyev
Nico Sturm
Alexander Texier smile.gif
Dante Fabro
Gaeten Haas
Karson Kuhlman

UD Game Jersey: Milan Lucic

Overall not bad, not great, was hoping for Hughes, but who isn't. laugh.gif I like the revision to the Portraits, they look more like well, modern double shot portraits. Not thrilled with the Canvas changes, they look OK, but kind of weird with Canvas noted in the "gold bar". I think we can all tell by the feel that they are not base, duh! laugh.gif I am up in the air on the shooting star design, kind of plain without a foil background, but the shooting stars across the background kind of make them look a little neat and accentuate what the insert is. The whole base and young card designs are nice, I thought I wasn't going to like them, but in person they don't bother me. As for the game jersey change this gets a thumbsup.gif as it is so nice to see some design of interest (Stanley Cup) to show the jersey swatch. I really liked that when ITG did it a few years ago. I don't know why, it just makes it look better than a circle or a square. Hope your boxes are great! Happy Thanksgiving!

Pretty good box! I think this is the way to go this year versus blasters or tins. I'm baffled they cut those back one YG and are still charging the same price.

I agree with you about the jersey cards they look pretty cool! Thanks for sharing.
