Default 2013-14 OPC case break (in progress)

I'll update this throughout the night to take a break from...well, from breaking.

I am 6 boxes into my first case (of two) and already I feel comfortable saying that this product has the goofiest collation of anything I have ever busted. It's like they pulled some drunk off the street to do it. Five of my first six boxes were black rainbow hot boxes. A couple of those also had a rookie in almost every pack. And I have pulled only SIXTEEN retro rookie cards. One patch and no autos so far - I have a feeling I'll be calling UD customer service tomorrow.

EDIT 1 - now 9 boxes into Case #1. Still only one patch and no autos. 7 of the 9 boxes were black rainbow hot boxes (I thought those were supposed to be rare?) and 2 were retro rookie hot boxes. Haven't counted the rookies, regular rainbows, rings or stickers.

EDIT 2 - finished the first case. I'm too lazy to do a total count, but 10 of the 12 boxes were black foil hot boxes (from now on to be referred to as BFHB), and 2 of those 10 were also retro rookie hot boxes. The two boxes that weren't BFHBs were retro rookie hot boxes (to be referred to as RRHB going forward). I hit a lot of BF stars (2 Crosbys, Ovechkin, Stamkos, Roy, etc.) and a BF Yakupov. I only got one patch and no autos, but no worries there because UD will take care of it (I got shorted on a 12-13 case too and they sent me the missing cards). Overall I'm happy with the break on Case #1.

EDIT 3 - 3 boxes into Case #2 and this one seems a little more normal - no BFHBs, one RRHB. Not completely normal though - 3 patches so far. No autos but I still have 9 boxes to go.

EDIT 4 - halfway through Case #2 - one BFHB, one RRHB. 4 patches, 1 Team Canada auto (Carter Ashton - woo hoo!) Pulled my 3rd BF Crosby - maybe I should go for all 100.

EDIT 5 - last update. All finished busting. 4 BFHBs (including BFs of Huberdeau, Brunner and Bennett), one RRHB.

No damaged cards that I could see - if the collation sucks at least the quality is pretty good.

For those of you asking about specific players/teams, I know I pulled a Grigorenko black foil and a JT Miller black foil, but I'm not going to have time to get you guys scans this weekend because I'm getting ready for a show on Sunday. If you can hold on until early next week I'll PM you with scans and prices. Thanks for your interest.

I would be interested in picking up any Jim Howard, Teddy Purcell, Gustav Nyquist, Ben Bishop, and Brian Flynn.
