It looks like some new hockey will be released this month:

13-14 Panini Select Hockey $110-114 pre-order, releases 11/6/13
12 packs per box with 6 cards per pack. Each Box contains Four Autographs, Four Prizm Parallels, and Four Inserts Per Box!

13-14 UD Series 1 $75 pre-order, releases 11/5/13
24 packs per box with 8 cards per pack. Each Box contains 6 Young Gun RC, Four UD Canvas cards, Two Jersey cards, and several other inserts.

I would not mind trying a box of both of these in the group. What are your thoughts?

maple19

Won't know how good they are until they are released, but I would like to have 1 of each in the groups and will try to get them in. Hoping Select is as good as it sounds.

Yes, just hope with this large of a rookie class that they don't get watered down like they do in other years.
northicehero99
Still need Tommy (drast) and Mark (obert22) to confirm.

Artifacts is OK. I have seen a couple of case - 1/2 case group breaks and thought a lot of the autofacts autos were weak player-wise, but I also saw some with the auto gu where it was nice players. The other issue is that the top rookies from this year's draft that are playing are probably the redemption cards as I don't see McKinnon listed in the regular rookies, however Galeychuk and Yakopov are both regular rookies. That means you might have to wait to get the rc. Still overall not a bad product.

The Autofacts seem to be a "sticker dump" for left over stickers, as many of them are not even playing in NHL anymore (minors or just not even playing). So it is more of any "extra hit" than anything big (a few still playing but few and far between from what I seen) unless you hit one of the Patch/AUs as those are bigger players, kinda like some of the BAP guys in example for low end AUs, that and Artifacts has always been more about MEM and RCs anyway far as product goes. There is some nice patches and tags in it, usually one patch a box but many are the one color ones as usual for a mid range product. The Redemption RCs will be classified as regular RCs though this year I would think, unlike last years that became XRCs due to lockout and no new RC decision for last year. Seen quite a bit of it opened on Vaughn, there has been some very nice boxes but some not so much....so pretty much like every product wink.gif laugh.gif

I don't expect to be drafting by then, but if you want to send a proxy list that is fine. Not sure who is hosting yet. Sent an email to Bill but have not heard back yet.
