Default UD 05-06 UD Series 2

Hey, I have a couple shows next week and I have been stocking up with just about everything.

I think that to be perfect I need to break a case of something...nothing too high end, something with a lot of rookies and some memorabilia cards. I was thinking about 05-06 Series 2 hockey...it has the Ovie YG and other things that may appeal to people, as well as myself.

What do you think....or should I look elsewhere?

No better way to fill out a table at a show then with a case of Series 1 or 2. Tons of inserts, good batch of rookies, one or two jersey cards per box maybe a couple of patches in the case. Picking a year may be a bit tougher, if you're hoping for rookies 05/06 or 07/08 would be the better choices I'd think. Not as many top rookies in 06/07 except for Malkin, Staal, etc.

Steve-

I gotta go with 07-08 Series 1. Kane, Price, Mueller, Backstrom, Johnson.....

But, then again, it'd be nice pull a Rookie Materials Patch of any one of those guys from Series 2 .

Hope that helped---Glad it's your call!!!!

2005/06 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey Hobby 12 Box Case [HK05UDSER2CSH] : Blowout Cards - Sportscards and Trading Cards Wholesale Online Store

I found some retail boxes, you think hobby is the way to go?

You get about the same amount of rookies, one less memorabilia, but no chance of getting an auto or patch card.

What's the better value?

If your doing a full case, to break and display, I'd get the hobby due to the fact that you've got those 2 case hits, and if your talking 3-5 bucks, those extra jersey and/auto'd cards (also presume better odds on inserts) should make up the difference.

If your doing boxes to resell, the retail might be be a better bet, but might have to help market it since most products the retail version is heavily watered down.

Given the price difference and your not looking at a full case, I'd opt for the retail. The YG's still by far carry the set. More boxes should equal better chances at getting Ovie (SII), while Sid is in Series I.

Vanek and getzlaf are in SII as well.

Probably can get some nice jersey, too!

I think on average people were pulling 1-2 Ovies per case....keep in mind this is UD and there were some with none, and as you've had reported, some with many.
