Description The 2007-2008 edition of Ultimate Collection comprises only 60 base cards, followed by 60 Ultimate Rookies (#61-120), 36 Level 2 autographed Ultimate Rookies (#121-156) and six Level 1 autographed Ultimate Rookies (#157-162). As per previous years, there are also a lot of inserts and memorabilia included, and they will be detailed below in the checklist section. The cards are rather nice looking with a picture of the player in action with a different colour background depending which team the player belongs to. Down the left side of the card, there is a silver line including the Ultimate Collection, and the card numbering is in the bottom left corner.

One box of Ultimate Collection includes four packs each, which include four cards. This is a high end product, and the boxes do not come cheap. Be prepared to spend a fair amount of money if you plan on completing the set.

Overall, this product is fun to break, but you are very conscious of how much money you had to spend to get these cards, making the experience ever so slightly stressful. On the rebuy side of things, after a quick scan of eBay, it appears that a lot of these cards will be resold at a rather low value. I just personally picked up a Martin Brodeur Ultimate Jersey for a mere $10. I cannot find anything negative to say about the appearance of the cards though, and I am very impressed with the Neely patch pulled with many colors and threads. I thoroughly enjoyed the break, but I am not sure I will be spending more money on this product.
