Default Thanks Blowout!

Finished with the first 1/2 case and these are what I'd say are the better hits. Many 2CL's. 16 Auto's through the 1st 12 boxes too Can't wait to see whats in the next 1/2 case. The Emblem's are just awesome and the Kane/Gagner is 1 of 10.

ITG always seems to put out a nice H&P product. They try and deliver some value and it shows. Shame they can't get a liscense for their big league releases.

Ditto from me-maybe in a few years we can get back to some sanity in the hockey card market place that the evil empire has virtually ruined with over production, too many products and for the most part zero value breaks for your collecting dollar.

Looks like an awesome break Fish- may have to recalculate my finances and see if I can swing a case.......

Sorry Rob I did and I got big league hosed (see my post under that thread). Worst part is I gotta call those jacklopes at UD customer service and likely get pissed off even more. It was the hobby's darkest day when they got the hockey exclusive, well next to the day in 1989 when they got their first license to do cards. History will look back (as it always does) and we will see who is correct..........

Good call on the dark day when they became exclusive. Any clue when that runs out?

I think we are in year 3 of this living hell so we have 2 more years, hopefully the marketplace can survive. Suspect we can start banging the drum for more licenses to be given out the NHLPA by this time next year. How great would it be for ITG to get one? My goal is to try and hang on till then, even though if this year is any indication, it is going to be really, really tough.
