Got a good price on these on DA at $27.50 so I bought a couple. Only broke one tonight, will break the other later in the week. Went with the one that ended in Letang's number figured it might be good since he signed a new contract. laugh.gif Boxes have 24 packs and contain 3 hits generally.

Base cards: 178 base cards, not sure how much of the set, but doubt less than 150 of the 250 base set as there were lots of dupes and even some triples, very bad coallation. I had multiple packs with dupes of cards in the same pack.

Inserts:

Tough Times - Marty McSorley

Breakthrough (3):
Ryane Clowe
Andrew Ladd
Michael Grabner

Rink Collection - Ville Leino

Canvas Creations - Rick Nash

Black (1 per case) - Jeff Skinner smile.gif

Rookies:
Erik Condra
Justin Faulk
Anton Lander
Matt Read

Hits:
Started off 2nd pack in with a Private Signings of Vincent LeCavalier - not bad! biggrin.gif

about 16 packs in I hit a Game Night jersey of Jarome Iginla - not bad as well.

saw a super thick pack and decided to hold it until last figuring it was a patch and I was right. Got a Kris Versteeg two color prime jersey orange and black with seam #/50. Again not bad, very nice looking card! smile.gif

Base set - 3 of 5 - nice cards, but this box had very bad coallation with multiples of the same card in a bunch of the packs. Wouldn't have minded if the dupes were of Pens stars, but did not get dupes of them. laugh.gif

Inserts - 3 of 5 - The Canvas Creations and the Black were cool looking, but the Breakthrough inserts were rather plain. Not bad though cannot complain about getting a case hit with the Black insert.

Hits - 4 of 5 - Nice hits with 2 stars and a nice patch. Cannot complain with autos and gu of guys who people collect.

Quality control - 3 of 5 - did not notice any issues with the cards, so no complaints here.

Overall - 4 of 5 - These boxes are not a bad value at the current price levels, what other box can you get three hits and four rookies from for that low of a price? None, I am aware of, but if you know of any please let me know. laugh.gif

Good Luck with your next break, may the mojo be with you!
