Default 2011/12 Cup 1 box, think I got murdered

Finally decided to go with my first high end box, wish I didn't

Best card is a Trio patch #10/10 all Avalanche. Gabriel Landeskog/Stefan Elliott/Cameron Gaunce. Beautiful card but in a $500 box with two $25 autos is not cool. Will scan, FS if anybody wants it.

Should have went with Dominion....

this is one year when i'd say a box of Dominion is a better value than a box of the Cup. the Cup will have bigger hits if you are lucky, but i think the average box of Dominion is better this year.

Seems like a card is missing or your box was tampered with.

he got 6 cards, which is average from what i've seen. getting 3 base is rough, but somebody at UD must have thought the Limited Logos was good enough to make the box. i won't touch this stuff at $500, maybe $350, but that's what previous year's go for, and i don't know what's going on with UD this year.

Yeah, I didn't think I was short a card, I certainly peeled through 10 layers of packaging to get to it. Planned on buying buying an Exquisite basketball but this box was enough to keep me away from Upper Deck for a long time.

Ya know, I started ripping through the board and did not see other 3 base boxes like this. Emailed & Tweeted to UD for their thoughts. I could see 3-4 bad autos but only 2? So weak.

My box cant come close to your plate & Hull. Your ARP is better too. I'd feel 10 times better if I hit your box

$100 on $500, that's what I wrote to UD. Unacceptable at that level.

ud screwed up the cup bad this year, and i watched tons of case breaks and a break like you had was common, and a reason i haven't touched the stuff dominion is great this year and its at least $150 cheaper, sorry to hear your first experience wasn't a good one

Bought 2 boxes and the total sale value BEFORE pp and fleebay fees was 108$ for both boxes... I feel prime is a much better product for the money even though I hated on it at the start.
Sorry man!

I had one nice card a dual patch auto in one box that sold for 42$. the 3 rookies I got went for 9 13 and 18$. One box had 3 base a jersey and a scrub rpa.
The other had the dual patch 2 rookies 1 base and a patch/jsy 1clr card...

Not the best but it seems like you hit or dont.. there is no midline box as far as I have seen esp at 500$ a box.
