Default Which affordable 05/06 Product?

I've been buying a lot from that season since I got back into cards. I bought a case of Ultra which was ok I guess but not spectacular. What are the thoughts on 05/06 UD 2 and Rookie Update? I've bought boxes of each. Once I finally got an Ovechkin of course it was damaged

I don't know much about hockey, but I understand Rookie Update has a ton of scrubs. Are there any guys who have rookies that might be good to have one day? I know there was at least one I can't think of right now.

Actually, on that topic...when a prospect gets drafted...obviously there are some freaks that are amazing right away, but how long does the average player take to develop? Like how long is needed to get a sense that the player has reached a plateau where you can figure how he'll be for his career? Not sure if I'm making my questions clear.

ANYWAYS, so what's the consensus on those two products? Or something else? I had one box of Hot Prospects. They are one of the few things I've bought that I had a strong dislike for because the cards themselves are ugly and boring.

Ive Heard that some people here like 05/06 Beehive. Just a suggestion, I really like the 5x7s.

Well, I only tried one box of Beehive. I loved the big cards but there didn't seem to be too much exciting content. I did try a box of Ice against everyone's advice...I rather get lice then roll the dice.

UD series l or ll if your talking case. good chance for a few top $$ RC + lots of jerseys maybe an auto or a patch. ICE is cheap but good luck with that 3 cases no love for me. I LOVE Sp GU or Authentic but not so affordable. Bee hive or parkhurst give lots of bang for buck. My "affordable" suggestion would be Bee Hive or Parkhurst

SP Authentic is garbage that year......so much so that you can get everything except the auto patches in the 06/07 product as well. They waaaaaaay overprinted SPA that year.

Edit: I recommend staying away from SPA that year

I opened one box of 06/07 Authentic. I might get some more of that as it did have a lot of autos and such.

I opened one box 06/07 SP Authentic, too. Got 4 autos, one of them being a Ovechkin Rookie Auto. I love SP Authentic.

05/06 SPA is a very tough break, only two autos, one a rookie, so your odds of a decent rookie are something in 1/20 boxes. I think SPX at $60/box maybe a better bet.

Which auto, the Future Watch one? How is it that the numbered autos weren't all distributed through 05/06 like they should've been?

From what I heard there were supposed to be 2 "waves" of 05-06 SPA when it was released but I guess the 2nd wave was never released (probably to overproduction) so they inserted the remaining autos/rookies in with 06-07 product.

Yes they did!

That is a great set to keep sealed.

Imagine Crosby, Ovie, Malkin, Stall, Lunquist, Kopitar, Parise, Stasny, etc....

All their rookies in one box.
