Default 2013-14 UD Artifacts - TRASH; Worse than Trilogy

So, I made the mistake of opening two boxes of 2013-14 UD Artifacts today. I typically like the artifacts product because the boxes often yield some cool hits in terms of jerseys and autos and often low numbers. Well these two boxes were complete crap and I mean worse than Panini crap.

Here are the results:

Rookie Redemptions
Red 213 LA Kings
Red 232 Wild Card

Base Goalies /999
Carey Price
Dominik Hasek

Base Canada / 999
Bryan Trottier
Joe Thornton

Rookie Base
Christopher Nilstorp / 999
Dougie Hamilton / 999
Ryan Spooner / 999

Autos
Eric Tangradi
Matthew Halischuk

Parallels
Scott Hartnell / 25
Nicklas Jensen RC/299
Ryan Spooner RC/99

Memorabilia cards
Mike Richards Frozen Artifacts (not numbered) 2 color (black and white)
Seam Couturier Treasured Swatches (not numbered) 1 color (white)
Ray Bourque Treasured Swatches (not numbered) 2 colors (black and white)
Sundin / Gilmour Tundra Tandems (not numbered) 2 colors (blue and white)
LA Kings Tundra Sixes (Richards, Carter, Kopitar, Doughty, Brown and Penner) 3 colors (silver, black and purple).

The best part was the one pack with a single card and a huge decoy. Multiple packs without jersey hits were missing cards, too. I won't hold my breath on UD helping me out with this.

This stuff was complete crap. I don't spend $84 a box to get unnumbered jersey hits. The price on this stuff is going to drop just as hard as Trilogy.

I am so pissed off about this break right now. No numbered jersey cards really pisses me off, as in years past they were all numbered and you often pull them with low numbers. Thanks for screwing me Upper Deck and Dave and Adams Card World!

Hit up Chris_AC on your Kings six-pack. He's the resident Kopitar super collector.

84 is a good price and artifacts always holds its wax price. Those were bad breaks bit on the whole the nice rookie class helps artifacts overall.

Man those autographs are woof. I was in a break last night with a few cold boxes but this takes the cake so far. As a whole, though, this product is usually good.

Clearblue, your name must by Rick, because you are acting really Ricky. Those that listen to the Junkies will get my reference here, since I can't use more colorful language. Bottom line is that you are a tool.

JoexBondo you are a troll, period. I am not the pot calling the kettle black. I have a right to be peeved that I got zero value from a product that cost a decent amount of money. I am not even complaining about players, just that my hits sucked, period. I am stating fact, but you are obviously an obtuse person just like clearblue. Go crawl back under whatever bridge you act as the troll for, ricky.

Wait, so I was just stating facts too. And that makes me a tool? My boxes were in fact awesome. I'm just trying to contrast your hate for this product with some positive light. You're the real tool here. What do you expect? Did you expect everyone to give you sympathy and console you? It is what it is. And my name's not Ricky, whatever that means.

You pulled a Tundra 6 card, which isn't too bad. With one auto per box, they really cannot all be $30 hits? Get a new hobby..

I Agree...Artifacts is Crap...Watched a Case Break last Night and the only decent Hits were a Modano Patch and Avs "I" Redemption out of 16 Boxes And Olny 1 Oilers Hit in the Whole Case...I broke 4 Boxes from last years Artifacts and was not impressed at All, I cant give this Stuff away its so horrible...I have Seen some Nice hits but they Are Rare.

Good Price and Fun to break But Wouldnt reccomend Buying it if your looking to Flip for Big $$$
