Question 11/12 UD Artifacts - Is this a good product?

I strictly bust football right now, but I am a hockey fan and have bought hockey in the past, but never boxes. Only packs when I was a kid. Looks like the prices online are similar to each other at about $82-$86 per box. The place I buy from has it for $42/box. Not a typo. Thats $42/box. Me and a friend were thinking about snatching up what he had left at that price. Not sure what any of it looks like or how good the hits are. Just want some opinions on what the product is like and if its worth buying.

Thanks to anyone who offers any insight.

For 10/11 Artifacts, there is the hobby version as well as the retail version. The ones you see online for $80+ are hobby and come with 10 packs.

The one you saw was a retail box with 24 packs and usually yield nothing but base so I hope you didn't go for it.

The hobby version is a totally different story and comes with a bunch of hits, 3 mem/AU, possible 3 way cards and autographed RCs, which make it a highly anticipated release every year, which make the price justified.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. I'll have to look at it again when I go back and see if it was hobby or retail, because he did have some really good hobby prices.

If it is hobby, hopefully nobody else snapped it up already :P

Let us know on it!

$42 a box? Grab them asap! Hopefully they are hobby. That's a deal! Artifacts this year was a nice product.

There is no way you will get Artifacts "hobby" for $42.00 a box that's below cost! If indeed they are hobby, but them all!

Just went back today, guys. They are indeed the retail boxes. I hadn't looked at them yesterday, just went off the price my friend told me he had them for. Thanks everyone, and I think I may still try a box at full price some point in the future.

Ah, best of luck on the hobby box if you are going to buy one in the future, let us know on the hits!
