I don't ship much to Canada. Can someone explain more details about the customs forms that need to be filled out?

I've had good luck as well with Canada buyers even when shipping takes longer due to their postal system. The other thing I love about hockey is European buyers (Sweden, Czech republic) which same thing goes for that. I post please contact seller for shipping charges on those though since costs are tricky. Bare in mind, with the Olympics coming up this year, the international market will be warmer than usual.

For sending things First Class you simply need this little green form. You write your address and the destination and mark the value and what the package contains. They then stamp it and stick one half to the package and keep the other half on file. I just keep a pile of forms at home and fill everything out when I package stuff. The big hassle with international stuff is having to take it to the post office.

The higher shipping levels require a larger carbon form.

Gee, not sure I should pick some up since it seems like it'll be a crowded market, lol.

Usually the Young Guns sell very well. This year's rookie class is a pretty strong class! I don't see the better rookies dropping in price that much but the lower end Young Guns will definitely drop in price. Someone on here stated they will probably start out between $3-5 and quickly drop soon after that. The higher end rookies I would keep unless they get mad money!

What else is new? I also see that there's slight case price increase as of today.

There is no Sidney Crosby rookie card in this set. At best its Stamkos x 10% and no goaltender like Steve Mason to help the set.

True...no big hype like Crosby or Ovi. We have to remember the 05/06 set was unique due to the strike so that is why that set is so high.

Tavares and Duchene will make this set...granted it will not be like the 05/06 but it is the next best set to have

I just preordered a case of this stuff. Do you guys suggest selling all the rookies together as a lot or sell them all individually?

I pre-ordered mine on here last week. Plus I'm looking into a second one. I just think this product will be great for a rip and flip. BTW I live on Long Island so I will get a premium on JT.

Well, I decided not to order...just worried about having time to deal with sorting and posting stuff asap. I was going to get 3 cases but I don't really want to get stuck with that stockpile of base. I figured I'll push my luck with more Cup Plus, I'm doing Heritage baseball the following week anyways.

Of course I know I'll get itchy when I see your breaks!

D-men never bring in the big bucks like the offensive guys. Hedman will be a great defensive player!

Chris told me today that he expects Monday as release date and Tues the live date. I just paid off the case from the presale specials...and I asked him when it will ship and he said most likely Monday...

You should have bought from BO! I still won't see my case until a week after it releases since I'm in the Pacific Northwest!
