Very nice 3 tins......I'm sure you'll get most of your $$$ back on the 3 tins if you decide to sell.

So you buy blasters instead


Pretty solid 3 tin break. Best of luck with re-sale.

Actually...for being 2 weeks into collecting blasters are a good way to break the ice...
was your first box the cup or some other high end product? no i didnt think so...

I just honestly dont understand the hype with this stuff...yeah there all nice patch or auto cards...but its risky...unless you can buy a case of it...then its too risky for me...

PS: Im moving up to SPA and SPX tomorrow...now from blasters to SPA i think thats alright..lol

That Bossy 1/1 and Howe will pay for almost both tins.

Well it has nothing to do with beckett. Alot of people look to resell & some like to put the nicer pulls in their PC. It has to do with knowing the players and what the interest in those players are. If you don't know who Gordie Howe or Mike Bossy is than you must be very new to the hockey scene. Especially after seeing your sig. You must have gotten interested in hockey when the 05/06 season rolled around. Also SPA is probably one of the worst products to open IMO in any sport. Hot garbage if you ask me.

Chill, I was just ribbing you a little about the blasters. I do buy them from time to time, but only when I have to open something and don't have access to a card shop or the $$ to buy packs/a box.

My first box purchase (when I got back into collecting) was a box of Artifacts FB and 2 boxes of Bowman Chrome FB.

Well i know who those older players are...i used to collect when i was about 10 but i never liked the older players...i like the young guys...always been that way...
My fav. player when i was younger was Pavel Bure. mind your im 22 years old so i didnt watch bossy and howe ever play in games.

Any how...if SPA is "Hot Garbage" what should i look into other then the cup???

If your talking Hockey, I would say UD Series 1 or 2, Regular OPC....I would buy those over SPA or SPX. When you buy SPA you basically get almost 2 complete base sets and you've got to get really lucky to hit anything big. SPx is a little better than SPA. At least UD you can average 6 RC's and have a better chance of hitting a top tier RC.

yeah...UD sr. 1 and 2 is good...i already have both sets made up several times (sr.1 rookies are almost done) I have most of the OPC made up too... Im looking for something that i can pull some jersey/patch/autos out of but without going over 150.00 per box...

how is the SPX 06-07? i see they are a fairly cheap box...but how are the hits in them?

If your looking to spend under $150...go with a box of OPC Premier. I've had a lot of good luck with that product!!! BO has them for $137.99 Your guaranteed a Quad Jsy Auto RC in it as well as other Jsy or patch cards.

UD Artifacts is at a good price too @ $117.99

Stay away from it unless you plan on getting multiple boxes or a case. I got very lucky with my box by pulling a Howe baseball skin Sig. The rest of the cards got me about $10 combined.

You should lose about $200 on the total break.
