Default Question about 05-06 ICE

Are the Crosby or Ovechkin auto's redemptions? Im curious cause the price seems very good at $73.00 per box on blowout considering you can pull a $3200 Crosby rookie or a $1000 ovechkin as well. Only problem is the Gretzky looks like it a redemption. If you cant afford the 05-06 CUP I think this is the product to open for the price, what you think?

I would stay away from this! The Crosby or Ovechkin are VERY hard to pull. There might be one per 20 cases. You are better off with the Cup IMHO.

But if you do decide to buy this, I don't think that I have ever seen a Crosby Redemption an Ebay Customer of mine pulled a Glacial Graphs Ovechkin out of a box he bought off of me.

To be honst, you'll take this in the rear if you buy any and are expecting a great hit. Crosby and others are /99 while most are /899 or higher (maybe /999). As Flobert said, they're almost impossible to hit. The cards are nice, and you can reasonably expect some decent stuff, but the great stuff is very very very hard to come by. So far I'm in probably close to 1/2 a case with misc. boxes, and haven't gotten anything to really report back on (my breaks are listed, just search for 05/06 ice). Any box breaks you come across will get you a better idea of what you should expect inthis product.

Didn't I hear that the odds of pulling either a Crosby or an Ovechkin was 1:7 cases? Or was that a #/99 RC period?

I imagine that the autos are probably easier to pull than the RC

Probably closer to 1:9 cases, and that was a #/99 period. These weren't redemptions, there would be no reason since they aren't signed.

There are a lot of underrated rookies in this set, who 3-5 years from now could potentially heat up, but that is no solace to the guy or gal who drops $5000 on 5 cases and gets a few Dustin Penner rookie cards. It was a deal at $45-50 a box, not now, if you want a deal Rookie Update from 05-06 has a chance to be the 1992 Bowman of hockey IMO
