As well I do like the design, I wonder how much can you reaaly change. I like the lighter background similar to 16-17. Gives the sense of a bigger photo.

This is the 10 pack Walmart blaster or "Mega Box" which is supposed to have 2 YGs like the tins right? I got one for Christmas as well. The normal $20 blasters only have 7/8 packs this year instead of the usual 10.

Butch, you did well on your boxes I've read them as you've posted. Congrats! How do you like the Young Guns design this year? Thanks for sharing.

Yes I thought that pricey at Walmart.
When the basic odds are 2 YG's, 1 canvas, 1 Portrait, and base.
10 packs and 8 cards would not buy another one.

My last box for the Holidays, think I did well overall.
Going by BV I hit for the number 1 Young Gun (Jack Hughes)
and the number 2 Canvas Young Gun (Cale Makar)
I got a Game Jersey an Exclusives plus I only need 6 cards to finish my base set.Did not get much for the PC besides a Zadina Rookie Portraits, and a 94-95 Rookie Die Cut Tribute card.

So here is my Blaster break down
19-20 UD1 Blaster box from walmart Price Tag $34.95
10 packs 8 cards per =80 cards plus a 3 card pack of 94-95 Rookie Die Cut Tribute

Die Cuts #'s
2 Zadina (red)
6 Fabbro
9 Abramov
base #'s
1-99 34 cards
100-200 40 cards
201-250 2 cards Young Guns #'s 204 Heinola, 248 Kuhlman (dup)
Canvas 1 card #C68 Kopitar
Portraits 2 cards #'s P-24 Aho, Rookies P-41 Zadina
Shooting Stars Centers #SSC-9 Tavares

Not real good odds of any kind of hit here just the Die Cut pack.

I will be posting my 6 base needed plus adding most of the inserts into trade page soon.
Thanks for reading wish everyone luck with there future breaks.

After watching the Wings lose another one, I felt I needed a pick me up.
Time to bust my other Christmas box (this one from the wife)

19-20 UD1 Collector Tin 9 packs 8 cards per =72 Plus 1 pack OPC Glossy Exclusive 3 cards
Price Tag $29.95 at Target (same place I got those lousy Artifacts boxes a while back)
And I am thinking here $29.95 and odds are you are going to get 2 YG 1 in4, 1 Canvas 1 in 7, 1 Portraits 1 in 6, and a bunch of base. Shooting Stars Goalies 1 in 48, Game Jersey 1 in 75 etc.

Lets start with the OPC Glossy my 3 cards #'s
R-1 Makar (blue)
R-7 Texier (blue)
R-10 Q. Hughes (bronze)
1-99 35 cards
100-200 32 cards
201- 250 3 cards #'s 201 Jack Hughes (last pack opened), 224 Verhaeghe, 228 Fox
Portraits 1 card #P-22 Marchand
Canvas 1 card #C94 Cale Makar Young Gun (first pack opened)

Also took a bunch off want base want list.
What a good box 2 really nice hits for what the box offers.
Still have 1 Blaster from Walmart with the 94-95 Die Cut Rookie Tribute 3 card pack that will be next. Will let you all know when it's done.
Thanks for reading.

Finally got time to get this busted and sorted. Here is my breakdown.
19-20 UD Hockey Hobby box
24 packs 8 cards per =192 cards I got 190

1-99 83 cards
100-200 82 cards
201-250 6 cards Young Guns #'s 208 Bunnaman, 219 Sturm, 229 Fabbro, 232 Haas, 247 Brown, 248 Kuhlman
30 years of Upper Deck 3 cards #'s UD30-1 Gretzky, UD30-19 Roy, UD30-27 McDavid
Canvas 4 cards #'s C25 Slavin, C50 P. Kane, C86 Nurse [COLOR=blue]C113 Kubalik
Exclusives 1 card #25 Palat 92/100
Game Jersey 1 card #GJ-MF Ferland
Generation Next 1 card #GN-17 Tuch
Portraits 4 cards #'s P-9 Getzlaf, P-13 Hellebuyck, P-37 Burns, Rookies P-49 Myers
Pure Energy 4 cards #'s PE-7 Kucherov, PE-10 Kopitar, PE-31 Hall, PE-33 Landeskog
Shooting Stars Defenceman 1 card #SSD-4 Letang

Can not complain hitting a Canvas Young Gun, an Exclusive, and a Game Jersey.
But no big names and no Wings for the PC
Pretty much all is trade bait.
Thanks for the look and wishing everyone at TCC a Happy New Year.

Sure landing the Jack Hughes YG in pack 1 makes the break more enjoyable.
Not a bad box for retail.

I have 2 boxes of hobby, 1 Collector Tin (from Target with the OPC Glossy Pack),
and 1 Blaster (from Walmart with the 94-95 Rookie Die Cut Tribute pack, 3 cards)
will be breaking soon. Will post my breaks. Hope for some good luck.

So my son is going to get me my 19-20 Upper Deck box for X-mas.
So we go to DACW to order(12 days of Christmas sale) AND I see they still have the Adrenaline so I say lets grab another box at $25.95. Still need a lot of base.
Sooooo Happy.

Here is my breakdown
24 packs 5 cards per =120 cards
1-99 42 cards
100-200 41 cards
201-225 Rookies 2 cards #'s 207 Datsyuk jawdrop.gif 411/984,
221 Kolanos 658/984
Power Play inserts 24 cards (2 dups)
Premier Date 1 card #106 Legwand 25/62
Hobby Variation Blue 1 card #63 Chelios 5/62 biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
Playmakers 1 card #9 D. Sedin
Creased Lightning 1 card #11 Brodeur biggrin.gif
World Beaters 3 cards #'s 1 Kariya, 12 Lindros, 17 Tkachuk
Rookie Report 2 cards #'s 2 Heatley, 9 Huselius
Game Worn Jerseys 2 cards #'s 42 Scott Young (blue) and wait for it


#16 Yzerman santa.gif jawdrop.gif toot.gif jump.gif


Pulled the Legwand #'rd of 62 in the 2nd pack have a few of his cards in the PC because he grew up here in Detroit. Then in pack 6 I pull the Yzerman Game Worn Jersey, and know I think don't care what I get in the rest of the box it's already been worth it. Next pack #7 I land the Chelios Variation Blue #'rd of 62 this just can not get any better. Pack 11 Brodeur insert, 12 Lindros, 14 Kariya and then pack 17 the Datsyuk Rookie. That was the reason I started buying these boxes to begin with. It took 3 boxes but the chase has been a lot of fun. All in all between the 2 RC's and 11 inserts book value is $101.50 but I only knocked 21 off my base wants out 51. So I still need base. But that's ok. Thanks for the look guys,
Wishing everyone at TCC a very Happy Holiday Season

Here is my tally on box 2, not as good as the first, but no complaints.

1-99 48 cards
100-200 41 cards
201-250 5 cards #'s 204 P. Kane, 215 Kucherov, RC's 228 Hirose smile.gif 241 Balcers, 247 Makar biggrin.gif
Silver Script 3 cards #'s 88 Couture, 131 Strome, RC 221 Grundstrom
Puzzle backs 3 cards #'s 1 Murray, 146 Dadonov, 174 Kahun
Stanley Cup Edition Silver Scripts 2 cards #'s 1 Kucherov, 40 Eller
Gold Scripts 1 card #110 Crawford
Laser Shots 1 card #S-2 Stamkos
Net Crashers 1 card #NC-2 Tavares

Most of the base cards were the same as box 1 so I have a ton of needs and lots of base needs. Was a fun break and only $40. A lot better than the Artifacts break.

OK, have not seen any, but I have only opened packs on epack.  Of course I have not hit any colour and contours either with what I have bought.  Guess there are live autos in this stuff too, but not sure if that is hobby only?  Have not hit any of those though.
*



The Blasters offer of course high number short prints and inserts of Puzzle backs, Silver Scripts, Gold Scripts, Stanley Cup Edition Silver Scripts, Supernovas, Net Crashers, Laser Shots, Laser Shots Red, Rookie Redemptions, and NHL #1 Draft Picks (1 in 12500). So there are some good chases there. For $19.95 a box it's a fun and inexpensive break.

No numbering on the Gold Script, but they do seem a little more glossy than the silver script.

Price Tag $19.95
82 base (4 dups)
3 Rookies (1 in 9, beat the odds) #'s
104 Krahn 432/950
105 Lombardi 158/950
139 Semin 685/950
23 Pacific Complete (1 in 1
1 Pacific Complete Red /99 (no odds given)
#459 Burke 79/99
1 Blue parallel (1 in 25, beat the odds)
#24 Hejduk 37/150
1 Game Worn Jersey (1 in 24)
#12 Elias (red) 641/925
4 Calder Contenders (1 in 7 again beat the odds) #'s
1 Bergeron
10 Brown
