Default UD 07/08 series 1 question

Hey guys...im expecting a case of 20 boxes ( i think they might be blaster boxes) of 07/08 UD sr.1
Being new to the card collecting...can anyone tell me what im looking for other than a Kane YG?

What are my odds of hitting something good? what would be considered a case hit?if there is one?
thanks

If its a case of blasters I don't think there is a case hit.

Blasters usually average two YGs per box and a few inserts.. rarely does a jersey pop out, but I have seen lucky ones (including 6 YGs in one blaster! one was Price)

I don't know if I would be counting on a Kane to pay for the case....unless you paid $40 for it. The Price and Towes YG's sell for slightly less right now. Now if you hit a Kane HG, that might come close to paying for the case, but with there only being 10 of them in circulation, I wouldn't really count on it.

I only paid 100 bucks for the 20 box case...so chances are i will make this set a few times over at least...plus i already have about 5 boxes opened from a while back.

well they are blaster boxes so... you will probably end up with a kane YG and a price YG and if you get lucky a few nice jersey cards maybe a HG but if you got a kane and a price it would pay for the case! Thats an insanly wicked price for a retail case!

Yea I would say that you got a pretty good price on that. The case should pay for itself, regardless of getting a kane, price, and or towes.

Just an update on the case...I just broke it today and i didnt do to bad i guess... I seen Some WEIRD things in the case...3 back to back to back packs...same cards same order. Also a few packs had all horizontal cards in it.
I hit every single young gun possible except for kane or price or muller.
i also got these.
- lord stanleys heros , Selanne and Guierre
- Award winners, Crosby, Malkin
- NHL's Best, Brodeur, e.staal, sakic, thorton, jagr, kovalchuk
- hometown heros, Latendresse, stastany, semin, datsyuk and vanek
- 3 Crosby checklists, 2 lidstroms
- Game Jerseys, Jagr 2 color (white and grey), iginla Red , manny fernandez black.

All of these cards are up for trades except the YG's and the Jagr jersey. Some young guns are for trades like dubinsky, halak, schremp and e.johnson.

Thanks guys and feel free to let me know how i did.
