Default Low End Break - 2011/12 Score

Went to my LCS over the weekend and picked up 5 boxes of 2011/12 Score. I haven't even had time to rifle through my 2011/12 OPC case but I figured these were cheap enough boxes, I'm sure my boys will enjoy the base sets when they're a little older.

I'm only one box in and the highlight is a Hot Rookie Signature Redemption.

I'll post more as I move along.

I haven’t made it to box 5 yet…will do so tomorrow. I'm not overly thrilled about the break due to all the excess base rookies, but given the low cost I might just go out and buy another 5 boxes and hope to complete the full set. The box says there are only 50 Hot Rookies and 9 SP Hot Rookies, but beckett.com has like 50 Hot Rookies and 20 SP rookies!!

I did 2 boxes of this with my sons recently and it was a far more fun for them to open a lot of packs and to see some names that don't usually make the cut for the smaller, higher end products. Plus, I liked that it was inexpensive, yet unlike what I've seen on other low end products (e.g., UD Victory) it still gave you a good range of inserts and a decent chance for really nice hits that could more than pay for a box. The highlight of our break was a rookie redemption for Brendon Nash (#515).

Sounds like you have done very well so far. And yeah, the price makes for a fun break with the chance of a decent hit. I could use your Latendresse auto if you want to move it, I am working on the auto set again. Send me a PM.

I've seen all the Hot rookies from 501 to 550 called SP's and from 551 to 570 SSP's. I think the odds on Hot Rookies are 1 in 2 and SSP's fall about 1 per box. The SSP's are going from 10 to over 60 bucks on ebay right now. I also noticed that it doesn't appear that the Hot Rookies were paralleled in glossy, Gold Rush, or Black Ice either. And you've been killing the oddes getting 2 Gold Rushes per box, except your 2nd box, they fall 1:36 or so according to the sell sheet. The snoglobes and die cut NHL shields seem to be hard pulls too. And the Hot Rookie Sig Redemption is a great pull, so is the regular auto.

Here's the last box. I think I'm pretty much done. Very disappointed by the number of duplicates (and triplicates) of Hot Rookies.

Box 5
Gold Rush - E. Staal
Score B - Fleury
Making an Entrance - Thornton, Eberle, Ovechkin
Sudden Death - Omark, St. Louis
Playoff Heroes - Kesler, Burrows
Net Cam - Lundqvist, Kiprusoff, Howard
Franchise - Doan
Hot Rookie - Postma, Gaunce, Moore, Vande Velde, Nash, Palushaj, Blum, Campanale, DiBenedetto, Wick, Gustafsson, Holmstrom, Hodgson, Sauve, Scrivens, Zubarev, Sims, Bagnall, Horak (SSP...and there is no card # on the back!)
