I am not a hocket collector and wouldn't know most of the players if they were in my house but these are some of the nicest cards on the market today.

Good Luck to all in the break!!

I have no idea how the base cards will go for more than any hit

Some will and you may pull an rookie #/25 or 1/1.

1/1 is considered a hit, so says Nick a few pages back

yes, all 1/1's are hits as are the /25 RC's. Regular Base /249 & /25 are base slots

With the breaks we have seen there are sure to be many extra hits. Lets hope this stays true!!! Make for a great extra few presents for some!

IMO, a 1/1 base card should be part of the base slot. Probably the /25 non auto'd rookies could be a base or hit, doesn't matter either way to me. A 1/1 printing plate would, I guess, be considered a hit.


Just looking at the breaks on the boards, there should be extra hits. What about this approach? Case 1, for example, has 24 slots, but only 13 different members in on the case. Just random those 13 names instead of all 24 names and the top 4,5,6 or whatever get the extra hits. That way, one person can't get 2 of the extra hits out of the same case.

Basically, if there are 6 extra hits, you would have almost a 50/50 chance of getting an extra hit.

1/1 base sell for $100+ regardless of who it is. Nothing is changing.

It would not be fair to people who have bought multiple slots to do it the way you suggest. The people that have paid more should and will have a better chance at the extra hits

My bad, but there are still some base cards that sell for $50 - $60 which is higher than some hits and you get 6 cards with the base slot.

Good luck guys, I'll be on my way to Kzoo when this baby busts loose, so look forward to seeing the recap when I finally get my in-laws network up and running. Then for the next 9 days I'm Excavator Man Nothing between me and the dirt, but what I'm guessing to be 10 tons of metal (excavator has a 20 ft reach on it)!

Crosby's base will go for over $50, AO, Gretzky, Howe, Orr should be in the 30-40 range. It's not all that bad of a slot to have.

1/1 should be out of question to be a part of the base slot.

I think I paid $184 and got 2 Gold base rookies. Man I have some horrible luck in these things. I didn't hit anything in the Sportkings Break on 4 slots either. Well hope you all did better than me.
