Default 08/09 Ultimate Hockey- anyone busting?

I picked up a case of this for about 1K after ebay coupons/discounts from BO shipped 2 day air. Anyone else breaking this?

I've got 2 boxes coming in that I preordered a while ago. Think it is going to be a solid product. The 2 hits + RC is a better value than Ultimate FB and BB IMO.

Anyone seen a checklist anywhere? Are most of the non auto RCs going to be scrubs?

They are not really extra hits at all. It's the same make up as previous years of Ultimate, it's just this time you can buy a pack/box that doesn't come in a pack of 4.

Ok, not 'extra' but my overall concern is retaining/resale value as they've put a lot of stuff into the product.

I'm looking at it this way. If the big hit can make my money back and the other hit gets me $10-20, I'll be happy. Plus you still have the RC card that might do some decent $$ if it is of the right guy(s).

My case shipped yesterday and should arrive tomorrow. My wife went into labor though so I might not be able to pick it up for a few days!

See that they're LIVE on the bay! Now I'm getting excited! Good luck to all who rip...

Please let one of us from BOC find a nice NHL Logo Shield or something equivalent!

Anyone get a shipping notification from BO on this yet? I'm hoping it shipped today so I can get my boxes on Friday. Otherwise it might be a long weekend
