How is 06/07 SP Authentic?
 
I just bought a box off ebay for about $105. How hard is it to get one of the 05/06 year's Future Watch autos? How many Crosbys/Ovechkins were inserted into these? Thanks.

Well, I like it better than 05-06 just for the fact you can still get all the big rookies out of the product except for the patch auto variations. I busted a case of 05-06 when it came out and didn't get a whole lot out of it. The best card was probably the Gilbert Brule auto/patch /100 if that tells you anything. I only bought about 3-4 boxes of 06-07 and pulled an Ovechkin Future Watch auto, so needless to say I'm more than happy that I pulled that. I'm not sure how much of the 05-06 stuff made it into 06-07 :(

Thanks, I wasn't really understanding how it made it in either... Did they just reprint some more cards or something? It was super hard to get a Crosby or Ovechkin in 05/06 I busted like 3-4 boxes and got a bunch of no-name rookie autos. Hopefully I get a Malkin or a Staal out of this one at the very least.

From my understanding, they made so much of it and expected to release another "wave" of 05-06, but that never happened and they had a bunch of the autos etc leftover that was never released in the 05-06 so they added it to 06-07. I guess that's what happens when you make tons and tons of something and it doesn't pan out the way you think. I'm not 100% sure if that's what happened, but it sounds logical to me. I can definitely see UD trying to make the most they could especially with stellar rookies like Crosby and Ovechkin in the same year.

I also did manage to pull a Staal Future Watch auto out of the few boxes I did open of 06-07 :)

I opened a case when it came out. I typically pulled an extra 05-06 RC auto and a RC per box. I did pull an 05-06 patch auto as well. Best was same as above...an Ovechkin FW auto. It's like getting two boxes for the price of one.

That might be the best hockey card ever made...easily the best one I have ever seen in my life.

Thanks!

It's being buried with me.

Unfortunetly it was a redemption. :( Pulled 5/8/08 (the day that lightning struck!) and sent to me in this form mid-September.

Yes it is 10/10. Hard-signed too. That's what i like most about SPA.

Keeping the card, the scratched-off redemption piece, the box it came in, and a mint copy of the Beckett awards issue describing it as the "autographed card of the year" forever and ever! :p

Oh snap that card is awesome I hope there are some left

[QUOTE=mywaxpax;34344]Oh snap that card is awesome I hope there are some left[/QUOTE]

UD said 7 have been redeemed, meaning there are 3 left. This is as of September, and this is if they are actually telling the truth!

Including mine, I've known of 3 being pulled, so it sounds freasible.

Sweet at least I have a shot still. There are probaby some really nice Triple and Duals as well as more Quads left.

Yup most boxes had 3-5 autos, with one from 05-06 ....... mine had 8 autos, if you count the quad. :)! Good luck with your break, and congrats on that great price too!

Dang I just missed another one on ebay that ended at $88
