Default 2009/10 upper deck champs hockey

was thinking about preordering a box. i have 2 questions

1. is this a good price, or do you think it will drop after release?
2.for those of you who opened this last year, was it a fun break? (ie. card design, hit quality, etc)

thanks in advance
kevin

I thought it was interesting with all the natural history cards. The design was pretty neat.
I opened more than a few boxes - 2 plus cases.
Couldn't get a complete set with all the short prints. And this year its 560 plus cards.
As for a box or two. I got 5 or 6 boxes with the same autos so that was a negative. The Wholly Mammoth fossils and prehitoric tools were cool.
Lots of one color jerseys. Never did get my Sidney Crosby, Kyle Okposo or Shannon Elizabeth autos that are now awaiting replacements.

Glad my Super Mario wasn't a redemption.

Was the Okposo a different colored back one? I got my redemptions fairly quick.

Was a regular back. Upper Deck site said they were shipped but never received notifications that they were and never received. Spent six months arguing with UD over it to no avail other than they say they will replace the Shannon Elizabeth since she never signed.
