Default And the luck continues... a GREAT artifacts box

had the itch and barely made it before the store closed ... bought this box while the sports kings box was staring at me from the shelves and screaming for me to pick it up.

Auto Facts Wayne Gretzky - unnumbered.
Tundra Tandems - Bieksa/Ohlunh (bieksa is 3 clr patch) #2/10
Treasured Swatches Ed Belfour 224/299
Frozen Artifacts - Bernie Federko 79/100

Rookie Redemption for wild card

Rookies/999
Joel Ward
Daniel Girardi

Legends/1499
Tony Esposito

Base/100
Paul Stastny - stupid UD gave me one with a slight bend in the corner

Artifacts Stars/1499
Patrice Bergeron


my first gretzky auto.. im actually thinking of holding onto this one... but it depends on how much the one on ebay right now ends at lol

See scans below - break will be up on youtube later.

CC limit must be getting close...had to choose the weaker box Nice pull though I think pulling the Great One might of tempted me into the other box!

Nice Gretzky !!!
I'd thought about popping a box or 2 of Artifacts but the average autos seem to be pretty weak ...

Gretz auto in a vintage Oilers sweater (one of the nicest sweaters ever made IMO) VERY NICE Capt ! If you were ever gonna keep anything thats one to think long and hard about.

Bam - one of the reasons why i want to keep this one is because this is my first auto pull of a major sports icon (bball = jordan, football = payton/sanders/etc, baseball = ruth golf = tiger, you get the idea)..

and it helped to get a really nice patch card that could make up most of the cost of the box anyways.

would it be worth it to get this one graded? looks pretty nice..

btw - youtube break is up now

I think it's always tough when you pull something nice that also might mean something to you ...
All I can say is this is how I'd approach it ...

For me if I pulled this particular card (and I put a premium on a Gretzky Oiler auto) and knew I should at least get something back on the remaining cards I'd keep it ...
Just think -- can you buy this card for the price you paid for the box ??

I highly doubt it ...
Would be a nice card for the PC ..... as far as grading goes I don't own a graded card and have no desire to have a graded card so I guess you know my opinion there

oh i forgot. if anyone is doing the base sets... for 2.50 (cost of shipping - pp fees), all the base cards from the box are yours.

First response in the thread gets them.

the stastny/100 will be in there too (unfortuantely there is a slight bend in the corner - thank UD for that one)

I'm not a big fan of sending things in for grading Capt. especially if its not numbered. Only graded cards I have are from buying them that way off fleabay or collections.

CAP,

That is not necessarily true. If you grade the Gretzky and it gets a grade of 9 or better it will increase its value. Now if it scores under a 9 then all you have to do is pull the card out of the graded case!!! lol

I'll pay $2.50 for the base. It will help me complete my sets when my case arrives Tuesday.

CAP,

Would you consider your The Cup Case break a "HOT CASE?" I wonder if there is such a thing as a "HOT CASE" in the The Cup product???
